My dear Nagma

Write your views on how we can make our surroundings green, pollution free and environment friendly. (150 words)
As I feel our life depends upon purity of environment. If we keep our environment pure our life would be free from ailments. For this we need to be conscious. I think planting at large scale is the first step to be taken. It helps more and more. We should not allow water logging and garbage in the residential areas. Regular cleaning of the roads is needed. There should be no workshop or factory in the residential area. Our alertness counts much. It can save us from many dangers.
