I talk to my nephew and nieces about the small things they can do to protect the environment, says Abhishek Verma

Actor Abhishek Verma, who is currently seen as Shobhit in Sonali and Amir Jaffar’s “Aapki Nazron Ne Samjha”, feels it’s important that children learn about the significance of a clean and green environment since a very young age. Speaking on the occasion of World Environment Day, which is observed on June 5, he said, “I always try my best to incorporate little things that I can to protect the environment.”

“Not just me, but whenever I’m around my nephew and nieces I make sure to talk about these things because it’s important to inculcate the importance of a healthy environment from a young age,” he added.

Talking about the measures he has been taking on an individual level, Abhishek said, “First of all I make sure I know what kind of waste I discard and I check what can be recycled. I’m really against plastic bottles, and they have a huge negative impact on the environment and can be very dangerous to our health.”

“At home we only use glass water bottles. I’ve also started using my bicycle if I have to go somewhere nearby. Planting trees is a wonderful idea, I think it’s one best activities that helps our environment and everyone must do it with their kids. These little things that we do on a daily basis can actually make a big difference for a better world tomorrow,” he concluded.
