Energy conservation has become an important topic of concern that needs serious attention. It will not only save energy resources for future, but control environmental degradation and pollution. This can be achieved by change in the individual habits and making use of latest technology. The sun, land and the winds are always part of our life; and they are abundantly available in many countries.
There are many ways to conserve energy. For example, a lot of electricity can be saved by using energy efficient lamps. Organic farming techniques can be used for cultivating crops. Organic farming has tons of benefits in terms of energy conservation. It involves the use of biological materials, avoiding synthetic substances to maintain soil fertility and ecological balance, in turn minimising pollution and promoting energy conservation.
A sub-sector of organic farming is regenerative farming. This is a technique that basically regenerates unhealthy soils and builds upon soil fertility, in order to protect and restore the earth. This farming is used to regenerate the soil, land, and surrounding ecosystem in order to restore vibrant health to the environment. The key to regenerative agriculture is that it not only “does no harm” to the land but actually improves it, using technologies that regenerate and revitalise the soil and the environment.
At ORGANIC INDIA, our Earth SEER commitment to support the wellbeing of the people and the land we work with has inspired initiatives such as establishing these six solar water pumps in three villages of the Bundelkhand area. Our farmers can irrigate 18 to 20 acres of land with each pump, using less electricity, and growing more crops.
These are some of the ways you can give back to the planet. There is a lot more that can be done to conserve the energy, and bring balance in the environment.
