Rekindling our Love For Lakes

The world today is growing tolerant to the never ending lockdown and the growing pandemic cases. Countries have started to adapt to the situation at hand and are working on alternatives to resume or start afresh. In this pursuit to achieve the greater good, the natural environment that bloomed through the pandemic thanks to reduced anthropogenic activities is now once again facing the brunt.

Lakes, ponds, rivers and the ocean are once again getting polluted with solid waste as people seem to have forgotten their importance. Almost 2 years into the pandemic, we have lost our personal touch and affection that had given us the motivation to protect and conserve the environment.

In an effort to bring back that emotion and sense of responsibility towards protecting the environment, E.F.I had conducted activities across 7 cities in India. Take a look at all that happened during these activities!
