Sustainability. Something everyone tries to practice but fails to practice at home, with family. Wonder why?
We’re living in an age where people are more concerned about the future of the planet than ever before. With constant talk about climate change, our carbon footprint, and how the quality of life for future generations will be compromised by our damaged environment, the concept of sustainable living is becoming more and more paramount. So how are we being the right role model for our kids? How are we making shifts in our lifestyles?
Some give up plastic as a family-like Mansi Zaveri – the founder of Kidsstoppress while Pragya Kapoor – the film producer and environmentalist goes on clean-up drives with her children. We, as parents, must do everything to raise a child who cares for the environment and our planet.
Pragya Kapoor recommends 7 brands that are sustainable that we should switch to for our homes.
