More and more green. That's what we need!
Change begins with you. It starts spreading bigger and bigger from your Town to the State then the Country and then the World
Join my Living Greenways Campaign to promote zero plastic footprint zones, help revitalize native landscapes, counter habitat fragmentation and suggest alternatives as we rebuild environmentally sensitive areas worldwide.
My goal is to partner with city planners, businesses and homeowners to promote habitat conservation that will help wildlife that depends on them. Indirectly, people will be rewarded with natural oasis while restoring biodiversity in a sustainable way. Such habitats will provide health benefits to humans and help mitigate environmental health issues that pose a growing threat to our society.
This campaign can be an engaging team building activity at school and work or a fun family activity at home.
We are not looking for fund raising or donations. Let's partner to make the world around us a better place.

Plastics (generic name as polymer) has become a growing problem. Though, single use plastic bags and packaging are in limelight, there are a multitude of plastic applications in daily use. We need to reduce plastic use before the earth turns into a gigantic trash can. Listen to a brief history of how we got here. Check out a brief timeline.
Give nature a chance. If we help nature, she will help us in return. Encourage businesses, homeowners and city planners to build natural landscapes. If the space is a limited or in hardscape features like walkways, use flower pots. Planting in pots means local research—something than can be lots of fun.
My name is Anusha. I am a fourth-grader from New York and I am an environmental guardian. I spend much of my free time learning and teaching others about the environmental challenges facing us all.
My journey began two years ago when I did a science project in school. I was curious to know more. I read several books, visited Alley Pond environmental center and made this website.
I go to different places to discuss the plastic issue including suggestions like promoting zero plastic zones and benefits of urban landscapes to humans and insects alike. I have spoken at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Sarah Lawrence College, Savannah Bee Company, New York Hall of Science, American Museum of Natural History, Clearwater Festival, Yonkers Science Barge, Nature Girls, Girl Scouts, Town Hall and several schools. I helped plan the Earth Day event and participated in Green Eastchester festival in our town.
When I do this, I am discovering science, doing something good, exploring nature, going outside using technology efficiently and saving the world.
