Reducing acid rain by adopting sustainable products
A combination of air pollution and greenhouse gases is threatening the UNESCO site of the Taj Mahal in Agra, frequently visited by foreigners due to travel arrangements in the golden triangle of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. The limestone is melted by sulphuric acid content from industrial effluents – commonly known as acid rain. The surrounding Ganga and Yamuna rivers are sprites with industrial waste and surrounding forests are now thinned out or non-existent – our artificial environmental engineering to provide for a linear economy. The neighboring gharial, crocodile, and river dolphin reserve in Ettawah along the Chambal River is not spared from this nightmare and an urgent national program on cleaning the rivers is ongoing under Namami Gange. A pristine cultural and ecotourism reserve of India is under threat not due to excess tourism, but due to excess waste.
The least that tourists can do to reverse this trend is to adopt sustainable and circular economy products that are less taxing on natural resources, reduce particulate waste, avoid littering and use our products at eha. Imagine lunch with your partner and family by the Yamuna, using our plates, spoons, forks, cups, and bottles made from bio-composite materials of plastic and crop residue with up to 100% biodegradable content. You would sit there enjoying your sumptuous meal with our homeware products while you witness the sunset as the crowning glory at Taj. You would say ‘Wah Taj’.
