Islamabad the beautiful capital of Pakistan has a national park which is called Margalla Hills National Park. Margalla hills have 6 Trails but Trail, 3, 5 and 6 are the well-known trails. People are mostly going on these three trails. On 25th December 2015 Youth Association of Pakistan and Youth Forum For Kashmir conducted an event for the Future’s Leaders with the name “Hike of Future Leaders”. Students from FJWU, Islamic University, Capital University and Preston University participated in the event in a large number.
Tariq Khan the founder of Clean and Green Pakistan motivated the youths to keep the Trails Clean and Green and for that purpose, he brought shoppers and given a task to the participant to collect those garbage which was thrown by some visitors. During at first impression, I noticed that no one will take part in this campaign but it was totally opposite of my thought. Grouping was made by the organizers and then that cleaning drive started. Everyone collected the garbage and then the group of Islamic University won the competition of cleaning drive. The aim is not cleaning but I want to make people aware that please avoid throwing the garbage at the wrong place, Clean and Green Pakistan’s founder Tariq Khan said. Saving the nature is the responsibility of every citizen. If a person coming for hiking to be healthy so it is must to keep that place clean for others also. We are going to design a Shopping bag which will be re-useable and it will minimize the use of plastic bag which is one of the biggest cause of global warming. Please encourage more than more people to minimize the use of plastic bags, Tariq said. A representative of “Save the Wildlife” also displayed the charts and banners. Saving the nature and Wildlife both are very important.
Most wastes can be avoided. This is because a large portion of waste we consume are disposable items, mainly plastic water bottles, plastic bags, food containers, and tin cans. The issue whether or not we should still use these disposables has been debated, but we can now see initiatives to reduce the use of such products and go back to using reusable items. (Personally, I like the idea of paper bags rather than plastic.) We too can help. By simply bringing a reusable water bottle will help reduce the demand for plastic water bottles, at least one bottle a day.
