Importance of Small Steps…

Ritu Hada – The Sustainability Changemaker

We are celebrating Qatar Sustainability Week, and I, as an environmental enthusiast, would like to share something with you. As a homemaker, I realised that making major changes to achieve SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS was not feasible.

On the contrary, we can take small steps and actions for the same.

  • I try to SAVE WATER AND ELECTRICITY to the maximum of my capacity and keep educating my family.
  • We REUSE the KITCHEN WASH WATER to water plants and for secondary cleaning purposes (I have a terrace garden😊).
  • We always try to reduce the use of plastic bags by carrying our own ‘REUSEABLE’ bags whenever we go shopping.
  • Also, LEFTOVER from parties and daily household is never disposed of and is very judiciously provided to the needful.
  • My husband, along with his friends, has made it a habit to CARPOOL to the office so that one vehicle is used in place of multiple for the same destination.
  • And yes, I am planning to buy a SOLAR COOKER very soon so we can trap at least a small amount of beautiful sunlight and solar energy that Qatar offers us.

So, friends, all of us can try our best to bring out ideas through which we come forward towards achieving sustainable development goals.

Keep sharing ideas; maybe yours can help!
