A clean environment ensures the continual existence and survival of all life on Earth. Cleaning the environment reduces pollution, protects unique ecosystems, prevents the extinction of endangered species and conserves resources, such as water, land and air. A clean environment ensures the protection of biodiversity and ecosystems upon which human life and all other life on Earth depends.

Clean Air

Clean air is air that has no harmful levels of pollutants (dirt and chemicals) in it. Clean air is good for people to breathe. On a hot day with no wind, the air can feel heavy and have a bad smell. Once in a while, the air can even make your chest feel tight, or make you cough.

This legislation has a 40-year track record of cutting dangerous pollution and has prevented more than 400,000 premature deaths and hundreds of millions of cases of respiratory and cardiovascular disease.

Air pollution creates an adverse effect on the overall global environment. More the number of vehicles and industries, the more is the contamination in the environment. Sometimes peopleeven find it difficult to breath easily in a polluted air. Air pollution is caused in excess due to many large businesses that have their focus on making money rather than maintaining a clean, green and healthy environment. The smoke emitted from these industries and factories are carried to miles and ultimately generate dirty and unhealthy pollution.

Reduce usage of chemicals and pesticidesr

It is always advisable to eliminate maximum household chemicals and pesticides that directly pollute the green environment. Instead you can make your own solutions for cleaning purpose using distilled vinegar, lemon and baking soda. There are many ‘green’ cleaning products available in the market which is environmentally friendly and conventional cleaners too.

Recycle the waste products

Many waste products like glass, plastics, aluminium and paper can be recycled instead of been disposed off in the dustbin. This will prevent any air pollution accumulated on burning these products. You can also use reusable towels and reusable bags rather than usingdisposable plastics or bags.

Grow your food locally

Planting of the food locally helps in reducing the overall commercial transportation of food items that require pesticides and preservatives to preserve them. These preservatives directly pollute the air. It is also a proven facts that organic food is more sustainable that the one which is preserved using harmful pesticides and chemicals, thereby causing harm to the entire global ecosystem.

Avoid the pollution

Try not to throw away trash or waste materials almost anywhere in and around your house. You must try to dispose of biodegradable as well as non-biodegradable wastes in a proper way and avoid littering it all over your home environment. Any excess air or water pollution can negatively affect you and your family health while destroying the entire environment globally.

Some of the greatest threats facing the planet as of 2104 are climate change and global warming. In recent years, the Earth’s average temperature has increased. Climate and weather changes, such as heavy rain falls, resulting in heavy floods, severe heat waves, drought, melting ice caps and rising sea levels, have accompanied these rising temperatures.
Other factors that negatively impact the environment include toxic emissions and the pollution of water, land and air. Pollutants also adversely affect human health, causing health conditions and diseases such as cholera, heart disease, cancer, cystic fibrosis, and respiratory tract and eye irritation. Pollutants have led to increased mortality rates. To maintain a clean environment, people need to reduce the use of toxic materials, conserve water and energy, dispose of garbage properly, recycle waste products, purchase recycled products, invest in green energy and drive fuel-efficient cars with reduced carbon dioxide emissions.

UPICO Contribution in Clean Environment – Ecofriendly e-Rickshaw

Battery operated electric three-wheelers or e-rickshaws have recently emerged in the public road transport sector in India. These vehicles have gained much popularity owing to the comfortable and economic mode of transport they provide to the fellow commuters. The present work is based on a case study in West Bengal state where the travel pattern of these vehicles has been studied. The average specific energy consumption of the e-rickshaws has been found to be 53.76 kJ/passenger-km, which is the most efficient among other forms of motorized three-wheeled passenger vehicles. This study also delineates the challenges that stand in the way of proper implementation of these e-rickshaws in the public transport sector.
