‘Nagaland for Green Christmas’ is the need of the hour for our state primarily because, while it is the most wonderful time of the year, it’s not the most environmentally-friendly. The festive season is traditionally the period of peak consumption across the state.
With a little know-how, we can actually host a state-wide sustainable and eco-friendly Christmas. From the type of tree we buy to the food we eat, everything – no matter how big or small – can make a huge difference. The key is to incorporate small changes and considerations into our normal routine- think about the items we buy, how we use them and how we dispose them as well.
Apart from the campaign, the ‘Nagaland for Green Christmas Pledge’ form is also active from November 23rd to December 19th, 2020, so as to encourage the public to take sustainable actions, this Christmas and beyond.
