Child actor Aakriti Sharma says the lockdown has made her realise “how much destruction humans have caused”, adding that she has introduced a few eco-friendly changes in her life.
“We have been staying at home for so many days so that the virus does not spread more. With everybody sitting at home, everything around me is changing, even the environment. The sky is clearer and there are lesser cars on roads, thus reducing pollution,” Aakriti said.
“This has helped me in understanding how much destruction humans have caused. I have even started to reduce, reuse and recycle things kept at home and ask my friends to do so. I am glad that we are looking at the positives of this lockdown,” added the actress, who was seen in musical drama “Kullfi Kumarr Bajewala”.
Child actress Myra Singh Gill, who has a starring role in the show, says “as a part of the young generation, I feel it is everyone’s responsibility to take care of nature”.
“At present, the world is fighting a big crisis but it has also helped in healing the environment. From cleaner beaches and fresh air, I also hope that the world is able to come out soon without masks and protections and I can go to school soon and meet my friends. My mother and I have decided to plant more saplings this Environment Day,” Myra added.
As part of celebrating World Environment Day, the child stars have collaborated with the channel Nickelodeon for campaign #GoGreenWithNick, through which they aim to educate people about the positive ways in which the lockdown has benefited the environment.
