  • As the entire country continues to be locked in their homes, mother earth is healing herself -- right from greener pastures to clearer skies and reduced pollution.
  • To mark World Environment Day, a few brands took cognizance of this and urged every citizen to imbibe these learnings, reflect upon their actions and as we brace ourselves for the lockdown being lifted, emerge as more conscious beings with focus on a sustainable future.
Civilisation today is staring at what can only be called the biggest human challenge. This pandemic has left us thinking, wondering and questioning about all that we have done in the past. The environment is one such area where enough human effort may not be sufficient to reverse the damage caused so far, but a little conscious effort every day, collectively may promise our future generations a safer planet to inhabit, a lot safer than the one we call our home today. Like every year, a few brands have come forward to remind its consumers and fellow companies that sustainability should be prioritised at every household and workplace.

Here are a few campaigns that caught our attention:
