Go Green!

By Anupriya DG - July 24, 2011

Well......am still going strong on the posting front with outfits from my recent trip out of town. :)

And for no particular reason, I had absolutely gone on a color-crazy dressing spree while on that trip.........so please bear with another dose of bright blocks (in agreement with Dusk, I'm not "blocking out" any color here) patches of colors on me this time round too! (In case you've no idea what I'm talking about, check out my last post here)

On another note, the organisation I work for has suddenly switched to a Go Green mode! The CEO is sending long mails with tips on how to be a more eco-friendly employee, the desktop backgrounds are all green-themed now & there are regular updates on how to conserve electricity, save water or recycle. It has definitely stirred up a sense of induced responsibility in some of the employees, while for some others it's just another gimmick they think the company will get tired of soon......
As for me, the whole shenanigan didn't make much of a difference......coz I already know most of what the mailers are preaching........& I also do practise all those Earth-saving acts.
But it set me thinking........what if my employers wouldn't have thought up of this whole activity??? Would the people, who are following the rules just because the CEO says them, have cared to do something towards the betterment of this environment? Would the employees, who realised the importance of these acts only when they came to them in black & white, have thought twice before leaving a water tap running or leaving the office without turning off their PCs? Probably not. 
Does that mean that we are all becoming mechanical, spoon-fed babies who doesn't have a mind of their own? Can't people do those li'l things that help save the Earth without others having to brainwash them about it??? I mean.......isn't it our very fundamental duty, as Earthlings, to see to it that our planet is safe & sound???
Hell.....nobody needed to tell me that I should not leave a tap running coz somewhere out there, there maybe someone in dire need of those few drops of water..........nobody had to teach me turn off all electricity when I'm leaving a place (be it my home or office)...........nobody's mail had given me the idea of using already-used paper for printing stuff that I needed only for my reference (or for that matter, printing only when it was most necessary - one didn't need to print everything!).........
These very li'l everyday things add up to a lot when everyone all around the world do them!!! And as one of the updates on my office desktop read:

"There are no passengers on spaceship Earth.........we are all crew"


Now before I blabber any more, let's go on to the pictures............incidentally, I'm wearing green.........& you can see all the greenery in the background........green with envy, anyone???









Well......this is one of my rare posts where I'm not in a mood to talk much about my outfit........please bear.....

I've already written way too much for the day......so gonna give myself a rest now....

  1. Love all the colours in your outfit!!!!!!!! And there are soooo many colours and they look so at peace with each other.

    More people should be green, sometimes it pisses me off to see people blatantly be such an enemy to the environment!

  2. It i kind of disappointing no.....that people take action to conserve this planet we call home only after being requested by a higher authority. :( Oh well at least as long as there's some people like you....we will be able to make a difference.

    Love

  4. It is probably 'coz everyone takes it for granted and are not better educated (and if they are they are too lazy to follow the right path!) ... I guess we can only set examples, not change the world ... alone!

    You look lovely. That smile always works like magic. Great colors too. Love the backdrop as well!!!

  10. I guess the thing is that YOU don't need to be patronised by instructions or advice - because you are already perfectly aware of these things and they are second nature. However, sadly, many people aren't. I still find myself shocked by the utter selfishness I sometimes come across in terms of thoughtless overuse of resources.
    Love that shade of green.
