Mr. Burman said, “With the advancement in technology and fast-paced developments, it is vital to build an eco-system which protects the only planet we have. Our Earth is being degraded. Diesel and petrol emissions, smoke from coal and wood, factories spewing smoke pollutes the air we breathe. Factory waste and sewage are poured into rivers and lakes, poisoning the water we drink. Chemicals, in the form of fertilisers and insecticides, permeate into the earth and are absorbed into the crops we eat. Millions of trees, that provide our oxygen, are cut down and made into furniture, toys, doors and window frames.

I am responsible, you are responsible, every body is responsible to make changes in their lives, so that your grand-children do not need to wear oxygen masks and can eat fresh vegetables instead of synthetic food.”
