The indicators of depleting environmental quality are harmful gases in the atmosphere, degradation of
land, global warming, ozone depletion, loss of species and habitat and air and water pollution.
Being responsible citizens: Join hands with any environmental groups to prevent from bursting crackers in the city and celebrate "HAPPY DIWALI WITHOUT CRAKERS". dont ever purchase
crackers which amounts to environmental degradation like air, water, land & ground water
pollution. Causes health hazards, inconvenience to asthma patients, infants, pregnant women and
It is concerning to note that some environmental groups & government agencies are simply taking
precautions for safe bursting of crackers, rather than its prevention. Are they aware of the real
damage to environment even if used in safest ways?
By not purchasing crackers…we are doing humane service to society. Forward this message &
protect the city from pollution, we dont have band width to accommodate this nuisance.
There is no valid historical significance for "BURSTING OF CRACKERS" as fire crackers &
ammunitions are offshoot of post British rule in India.
Do you know that many companies opting for ISO 14001 Certification are struggling to dispose small
quantities of Hazardous wastes, by having material Safety Data Sheets?
Whereas the amount of hazardous chemicals out of the crackers is alarming! recklessly dumping the
hazardous chemicals, without any control, creating environmental havoc.
Who is responsible for control & safe disposal of all these hazardous wastes from these crackers?
=> Is it the Government? NGO? Corporate community? or Citizens in general?
If already purchased, "DONT USE IT, RATHER DAMPEN THE FUSES AND WE SHALL LOOK FOR
ITS SAFE DISPOSAL"
