thekachraproject Microbeads are tiny plastics found in face washes, scrubs, toothpastes etc that end up in the oceans polluting the water & killing marine animals. It is time to say NO to these. Here's all you need to know.

past_exists_only_in_your_memor Ganga Ma, which supports a large percent of India's population, is considered to be holy, and bathing in it is believed to wash away the sins and purify one's soul. Worshipers drink straight from it and then collect large quantities of water to take home. They claim it can be stored for years without going bad and even used as a medicine. Morning and night, various rituals are taking place on the banks, culminating in elaborate aarti ceremony at dusk. People offer flowers and rice to the mother, without being concerned about all plastic bags and bottles that end up in the same place. And more. Since the cost of cremation ceremony often exceeds an average monthly salary, hundreds of bodies are simply dumped into the river every year, along with raw sewage and carcinogenic chemicals such as chromium, mercury and lead #india #ganga #ganges #Varanasi #pollution #environment #ecology #waterpollution #aarti 1d
  •   itsswati19 @past_exists_only_in_your_memor I thought it's your another artwork. But yes, we need to highlight these problems. Funny thing is, on the basis of cleaning Ganga current government won the election 2yrs back and still it's the same. Actually going worse. But no actions. 1d
  •   past_exists_only_in_your_memor @itsswati19 Yes there are some clean-up efforts taking place but pollution is spreading much faster... 1d

indiawaterportal A man performing prayers on the bank of Kshipra river at Ramghat, Ujjain. According to ancient Hindu texts, the Kshipra river originated from Varaha's heart, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. On special occasions like Kumbh Mela, people take a royal bath in Kshipra to wash their sins of all previous births. Kshipra is a symbol of purity like Ganga. But in the last few decades, this perennial river has also lost its glory. The sewage of Ujjain city and the industrial waste around Dewas town find their way into the Kshipra. Its waters which once quenched the city's thirst, aren't even fit for bathing any longer, but this doesn't stop people. After all, it has a religious significance! Image and words by @makarandpurohit

zsofi.jaszberenyi When the river came to visit

"Fortunately for us, given the right conditions, water is able to clean itself of many pollutants (...)" "Solid material may settle out at the bottom of a water body and become part of the accumulating sediment, or it may be dispersed in the flow of moving water and spread out so widely that its effects are greatly reduced. Substances that dissolve in the water may be greatly diluted by large water volumes such that the amount present in any fixed volume is very small. (...)" "However, there are limits to the capacity of any river to cleanse itself in this way."
