I am Serious – part II

22 Jan

These are deeper, difficult thoughts, even in terms of implementation!

1. Ban paper currency- make the world go barter.  Else- somehow mint plastic coins. Use waste plastic there …. PLEASE. I hate those chips/rajnigandha wrappers on the roadside.

2. Make it compulsory for anyone working on a Laptop to work from home. All approvals would automatically happen on soft copy. Also, this would encourage cloud computing and more new age innovations. Obviously, we’d save fuel too.

3. Ban cigarette. Save those butts.

4. Dig all Govt. offices. Pull out the load of paper in there. Soft copy them. Recycle the paper. (This would also help create employment for people who would soft copy it.)

5. Bring the world to a consensus on saving paper. The rest would happen!

        Its easy to say that 3 is easy to implement!! Off all materialistic things, this has been t most diff for me to let go.Still trying hard:-) Heard there are electronic versions now..

        hatsoff for 2 though!! paves way for too many good things, if only time limits could be followed while working from home too 🙂

        I went critical on everything.damn, it has to be the time.But,seriously love the idea of saying so much in so less.

    Saving paper hurts the environment.

    Surprised? It’s basic economics. Paper companies have an incentive to keep replanting trees, to assure a constant source of income. If paper demand falls, they acquire/preserve smaller forest area.

    Unowned forests are subject to intrusions, logging, burning for farmland etc.

    So here’s the deal: Recycling hurts the environment.

    what an idea!!!

  7. Kartik January 25, 2010 at 3:17 pm #

    Good one.. as usual!!!

    one more from my side,

    People should stop accepting their phone, credit card, grocery, etc etc bills. I mean am not against “Jaago Grahak Jaago” campaign but stopping those papers will also help in saving a lot of paper.

    Monthly mailers, bank statements etc also shud be stopped.. I have done so!!! 🙂

    PS: Idea ad is awesome.. last part is the best, “Aap kaunse ped ho? Pre Ped ho ya Post Ped ho??” 😉

      Interesting one : grocery bills oh ekdum hi nahi lene chahiye, usse toh heart attack ke bhi khatre hai!

      headline yeh hogi
      “Govt pushes for reforms on grocery bills, anticipates saving millions of lives”

    Stopping paper usage most likely will increase use of plastics…(Something has to replace paper)… How would it be if you were reading plastic newspapers in the morning… or plastic magazines…etc etc…
    And using plastic as toilet paper.
    Afterthought… A boom to Papa’s industry.
