We the people must also meet ours the govt. Our mindset should change toward our involvement in cleaner society or environment. The earth does not belong to us. We belong to it. Our civic responsibilities to help the government to help us cannot be overemphasized. So next time you drink pure water sachet or bottle, discard wastes purposefully. We must help the government to help us. Thanks for the rapid response”.
