We can all do our bit to achieve a 100% sustainable lifestyle. All we have to do is tap into our daily habits and take note of how we can reduce the amount of harm we unknowingly do to our environment. All we need have to do is to be a little more responsible towards Garbage redressal. Rather than throwing it we might as well give it a try growing it. It’s not asking for something humongous but if we can work together towards our vision we all can make this happen.
Here is what we are going to do. We will all take an oath to contribute towards our environment by managing the garbage that we create. This way garbage is going to be reduced from its origin. We will all list our oaths here. Please add on to it whenever you feel like.1
I will not throw plastic with the kitchen waste.

I will reuse every bit of kitchen waste to create compost.
4 I will use only natural composts in my soil, in case of kitchen farming or community farming.
