The most engaged place in any state is a Railway station, so Ida foundation initiated an event where we took the mops and brooms and started cleaning RAILWAY so that people can get aware of hygiene and cleanliness around them. Railway station is a place where we find the waste and dirtiness all around and the study also says that it gives birth to the diseases due to the unhygienic condition at station and as it is overcrowded area many people suffer due to unhygienic condition. So, tried and initiated with this project where people see and realize not to spit, litter and also learn to stay in hygienic condition.
The most engaged place in any state is a bus station, so Ida foundation initiated an event where we took the mops and brooms and started cleaning RAILWAY so that people can get aware of hygiene and cleanliness around them. Railway station is a place where we find the waste and dirtiness all around and the study also says that it gives birth to the diseases due to the unhygienic condition at station and as it is overcrowded area many people suffer due to unhygienic condition
We see there is a huge flow of people who travel through ST bus and also we have seen such place in the most unhygienic and dirty conditions.
This beach is a place where people nearby visit regularly and come along with family. We have seen here kids playing with sand. While cleaning this beach we were really shocked to see the waste over the beach. Nearly more than 1 tractor of waste we had collected – the waste type was plastics, bottles, glasses, waste torn cloths, wrappers and tetra packs we consume, Sanitary wastes. We did with a motive where our kids can enjoy in a healthy environment and also stay and play safe.
Since the beginning, trees have furnished us with two of life’s essentials, food and oxygen. As we evolved, they provided additional necessities such as shelter, medicine, and tools. Today, their value continues to increase and more benefits of trees are being discovered as their role expands to satisfy the needs created by our modern lifestyles.
Trees are an important part of every community. Our streets, parks, playgrounds and backyards are lined with trees that create a peaceful, aesthetically pleasing environment. Trees increase our quality of life by bringing natural elements and wildlife habitats into urban settings. We gather under the cool shade they provide during outdoor activities with family and friends. Many neighborhoods are also the home of very old trees that serve as historic landmarks and a great source of town pride.
Using trees in cities to deflect the sunlight reduces the heat island effect caused by pavement and commercial buildings.
The canopies of trees act as a physical filter, trapping dust and absorbing pollutants from the air. Each individual tree removes up to 1.7 kilos every year. They also provide shade from solar radiation and reduce noise.
Over 20 species of British trees and shrubs are known to have medicinal properties. The oil from birch bark, for example, has antiseptic properties.
Research shows that within minutes of being surrounded by trees and green space, your blood pressure drops, your heart rate slows and your stress levels come down.
Trees absorb carbon dioxide as they grow and the carbon that they store in their wood helps slow the rate of global warming.
They reduce wind speeds and cool the air as they lose moisture and reflect heat upwards from their leaves. It’s estimated that trees can reduce the temperature in a city by up to 7°C.
Trees also help prevent flooding and soil erosion, absorbing thousands of liters of storm water.
Trees strengthen the distinctive character of a place and encourage local pride. Urban woodland can be used as an educational resource and to bring groups together for activities like walking and bird-watching. Trees are also invaluable for children to play in and discover their sense of adventure.
Soon, for the first time in history, the number of people with homes in cities will outstrip those living in the countryside. Parks and trees will become an even more vital component of urban life. We must respect them and protect them for the future.
Adopt a tree today if you think trees are important too!
