Why One Planet?
We, humans, are destroying the earth and its ecosystems by our unsustainable practices. We are responsible for the ongoing environmental destruction and climate change. Humans are in fact causing the sixth mass extinction on earth. All this is, in turn, impacting our own lives. Vulnerable communities, however, are getting more affected than the resource-rich ones. Developing countries are facing the burnt of this changing climate more than the developed nations due to the lack of mitigation infrastructure.
There is a lot of talk on the internet on these issues. However, very little is said and written in the context of developing countries like India. This page is an effort to bring light on the issues of environmental destruction, sustainability and climate change in the context of developing countries.
The idea is not merely to criticize, but to give business, academic and individual solutions and to share what we can do. This website is for everyone who wants to learn, and do their bit to save this ‘One Planet’ we call our home!
If you are new to this website, welcome to the ‘One Planet’ family!!

My Experiences with Sustainability
I have been actively shifting to a sustainable lifestyle since 2016. Read to know more about the hurdles, difficulties and joys of this ongoing journey towards Sustainability.
There are several issues related to environment and sustainability especially when talking in the context of a developing country. I wish to talk about some related issues which I have personally encountered.
Useful Tips for Beginners
Are you too thinking of making the change towards sustainability and minimalism? I will be happy to share some useful tips which might make this transition more comfortable and smooth for you!
After Amphan and now the forest fire in uttarakhand, I am literally terrified by the way nature is taking revenge from all of us who has been destroying it for several decades.
Amidst of pandemic, apprehensions of sustainability crises are increasing exponentially. Whether it is shortage of water due to excessive use of it in frequent handwashing or the anticipated food crises due to locust movement in various parts of India. The situation is becoming worse day by day and foster ourselves to rethink and initiate small changes in our daily lives. This is a pressing issue and needs to be considered by everyone not only by scientists and researchers.
I believe nature conservation is about behaviour and the issues needs to be adressed at the scale of human behaviour. Every threat is propelled by every day’s small action which compiled and then burst in a worst possible way. Our every day habits are menacing and needs modifications to the best extent.
The three R’s of the environment ( Reduce Recycle and Reuse) are not meant only to be written on books. These are meant to be followed which we consider as things of poor people. Overexploitation of resources is becoming a common phenomena. For example, purchasing three cupboard of shoes isn’t really necessary, buying so many clothes that you don’t even wear for more than once is not creating a huge impact on our lifestyle instead it is damaging you and your surrounding.
What about the coming generation?
What will be left for them? Are we not concerned about them or atleast ourselves? How this earth is gonna sustain?
The answers of these questions entirely depends upon the targeting actions we take.
Take small actions everyday and try to achieve them. Like recycling your used clothes and other items, use only a bucket of water for bathing, do not buy unnecessary things made up of plastics such as bags or toys.Use sustainable and eco-friendly products. Generate less waste in your water and land by making yourself aware of what are the things you are using and how they are going to impact on nature. Be aware and yes, someone has correctly said –
IGNORANCE IS NOT ALWAYS A BLISS.
At the end I would like to appreciate the effort taken up by Anupriya by starting one planet and making people aware about sustainable living.
Take care! Be safe!
