Binding the bird

Binding the bird is a simple small trick to demonstrate the agony and struggle experienced by a small bird when it is bounded by single-use plastic which is neither edible nor good for building nests. Still, some of them swallow the very small plastic chips we throw as the corners of snack wrappers, Gutka and Milk pouches, torn carry bags, etc. The plastic or more precisely micro plastic gets collected in their throat and other organs which struggle them to a painful death. This is not just for small birds but most of the animals in our ecosystem like cows, buffaloes, cats, dogs, and us. We should be concerned about our heritage and environment and should discard such items to prescribed dustbins only which can only be done by segregating our trash at a local household level.

Unpacking the Global Resource Outlook 2024

In an era where the echoes of sustainability resonate more profoundly than ever, a group of determined interns—Aarav, Razia Karim, Diksha Yadav, Washim Ahmed, Sanjana, and Godavari—have embarked on a crucial mission. Their goal: to decode the dense scientific discourse of the Global Resource Outlook 2024 into a language that speaks directly to the heart of our communities. This document, a pivotal analysis of our planet’s resource use, calls for an urgent shift towards sustainable practices to address the pressing crises of climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution. By translating these insights into accessible knowledge, our interns aim to ignite a movement towards sustainability, fostering community engagement, influencing behavioral change, and advocating for policies that protect our natural world. Join us on this journey of discovery, learning, and action as we strive towards a sustainable and equitable future for all.
