On 4th June, Tuesday, residents, relatives and team members at Karuna Manor celebrated the World Environment Day by attending a seminar delivered by Natasha Gupta, a teacher and owner of Blue Feather Design.

“We will now not waste food, will save energy by switching off the lights when not needed and are keen to recycle where possible,” pledged the residents and teams at Karuna Manor.

At the session, Natasha discussed about the increasing carbon footprint and various initiatives that can help reduce this along with the effect of global warming due to reduction of trees. She also highlighted the several habits one could undertake in their daily domestic activities both at work and home which can contribute towards reduced carbon emissions in the atmosphere.

From raising awareness around the consumption of renewal energy sources, to recycling plastics and other resources, the seminar aimed at educating the community about climate change. Contributing towards a greener planet, Karuna Manor has garden several trees, energy saving sensor lights and a heating system that is controlled by environmental temperature.

“My team and I have learnt a lot from this talk and would like to start taking actions towards improving environment,” said Ruth Kigaa, the Home Manager at Karuna Manor.
