Nourish Planet is an endeavor of Kosha Foundation to work on the issues of environment and climate change through the research and implementation on sustainable development programmes.
Nourish Planet under the Kosha foundation
Nourish Planet under the Kosha foundation is a non-profit organization. Nourish Planet is working against of climate crisis, water pollution and plastic pollution. Nourish Planet is also working on global warming project to spread awareness in peoples through campaigns all around the globe. We have been working from 2019, and we are focused to bring a good change in our environment.
WHAT ARE WE DOING TO PROTECT ENVIRONMENT
Kosha foundation is running multiple campaigns through which we are working to protect earth from pollution, global warming, water scarcity, and many causes.
We are working in recycling of plastic, we have run clean drive in Uttarakhand to clean rivers, kosha foundation has planted tress near water bodies. We are spreading awareness through our social media platforms by combining the youth together, so that more and more people will get to know about the situation of India and can definitely give their contribution towards this cause. Likewise, we have distributed garbage bins and aware people about biodegradable waste and non-biodegradable waste.
Why Save Water?
Clean, fresh water is a limited resource. With all the severe droughts happening in the world, the limited supply of fresh water is becoming one of our most precious resources. Every person on earth needs water to survive. Without it, many of us would get sick and even result in death.
While almost 70% of the Earth is made up of water, many parts of the world suffer from clean water shortage. Conserving water is important because it keeps water pure and clean while protecting the environment.
Conserving water means using our water supply wisely and be responsible. As every individual depends on water for livelihood, we must learn how to keep our limited supply of water pure and away from pollution. Keeping our water supply safe and pure will protect the water for the generations to come.
Many believe that our water supply infinite. However, our supply is quite the opposite. It is important that we must not pollute your water as many do not realize just how important and scarce water is. Only 2% of the Earth’s fresh supply of water is locked in ice caps and glaciers, while 97,5% of the earth’s water is saltwater.
Conserving water involves refraining from water pollution. This requires the use of strategies that includes reducing wastage, prevent damaging water quality, and improve water management. The population must save the water he has today and provide a sufficient supply for the next coming years.
Currently, fresh water is already limited as it is. Out of the 70% of the water that is available, only 0.03% is made up of fresh water. Every day, the population beings to increase, making the already limited amount of water much less. In order to save our future of water preservation, we must learn to conserve what limited resources we have.
WHAT IS OUR NEXT GOAL
All the work which we have done so far has given us good result, so we cannot stop here. We have decided to work in something bigger which can bring a huge change.
Kosha foundation is working to save the water so that we can reduce the scarcity of water and that can only be done by reusing the water or by recycling it.
Most of the places are facing this issue of water crisis and a report from NITI aayog says that by 2030 the demand of water will increase twice the water available.
By planting more and more trees, this is one of the best way to protect earth from global crisis.
The United Nations (UN) estimates that, of 1.4 billion cubic kilometers (1 quadrillion acre-feet) of water on Earth, just 200,000 cubic kilometers (162.1 billion acre-feet) represent freshwater available for human consumption. A mere 0.014% of all water on Earth is both fresh and easily accessible. Of the remaining water, 97% is saline, and a little less than 3% is difficult to access. The fresh water available to us on the planet is around 1% of the total water on earth. The total amount of easily accessible freshwater on Earth, in the form of surface water (rivers and lakes) or groundwater (in aquifers, for example), is 14,000 cubic kilometers (nearly 3359 cubic miles). Of this total amount, ‘just’ 5,000 cubic kilometers are being used and reused by humanity. Technically, there is a sufficient amount of freshwater on a global scale. Hence, in theory, there is more than enough freshwater available to meet the demands of the current world population of more than 7 billion people, and even support population growth to 9 billion or more. Due to the unequal geographical distribution and especially the unequal consumption of water, however, it is a scarce resource in some parts of the world and for some parts of the population.
