Harmful effects of plastic on cows and PM Narendra Modi’s message to save Cows

We everyone knows how hazardous plastic is for the environment.  Whenever we throws something like paper, food etc in the environment, there are some bacteria which grows on it, and covert this food, papers into something which mixes into the environment, some turning into useful for growing of trees, we call those items as biodegradable items. Biodegradable items are capable of being decomposed by bacteria or other living organisms and thereby avoiding pollution.

Whereas Plastic is a “Non-Biodegradable” item. Non-biodegradable waste is a type of waste that can not be broken down into its base compounds by micro-organisms, air, moisture or soil in a reasonable amount of time. Non-biodegradable waste is an environmental concern, as it threatens to overwhelm landfills and create disposal problems.

In past VSPCA (Visakha Society for Protection and Care of Animals), through their “Plastic Cow Project” has done extensive reasearch on the impacts of plastic on the street cows, and how they die a painful death due to having plastic in their stomach. VSPCA also tried to rescue those cows and do the operations on them to get the plastic removed. You can find mode details about the “Plastic Cow Project” as VSPCA website.

In 2013 , after petition from some Animal welfare organisation, Honerable Supreme court of India has said that “Plastic waste a ticking time bomb in India” and had directed the State Governments to issue appropriate directions prohibiting the use, sale and disposal of plastic bags in all municipalities and municipal corporations within their territory.

Preventing Cows from eating plastic is true Gau-Sewa: PM Narendra Modi
Preventing Cows from eating plastic is true Gau-Sewa: PM Narendra Modi

Last year ( 2015 ) Union Environment Minister Parkash Javadekar had said that every dead cow contains not less than 30 kgs of plastic. While talking in a town-hall meeting recently, Honorable Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi said that preventing cows from eating the plastic is the only way to save cows because more cows dies due to plastic than any other reason.

Now, as PM Modi has again highlighted the use of plastic and its harmful effects on environment and health and living of cows,Green Ecosystem vows to do all & everything we can do to suport PM’s statement and avoid use of plastic to save the environment & cows. We look forward for similar help from our readers and well wishers.

Story of an IT Employee


There is an IT Employee working as a software developer in a well known Multinational Company. When he is assigned for a project of one overseas client, he himself prepares a work breakdown structure, project plan and delivery schedule and gets an approval from his client.

As the projects kicks off, he starts following the scrum, responds to each and every email from his client within no time, gives daily and weekly updates of his tasks so his client knows the progress of the project.

As the project deadline nears, he delivers well tested, bug Free software to his client well in advance of the deadline.  So, as you have read, he works very hard, puts his all efforts and dedication into the project ( burns midnight oil ) and delivers a quality product to the client. So, the end result should be his client appreciating his efforts  and his company may be considering for his name in next appraisal … right ?

But wait.. what finally happens is His overseas client asks his employer ( MNC Company ) to pay $$$ to them ( client ) for the work done by him … ( business not as usual.. right? read the sentence again )..

Well, The story doesn’t end here,

Now the same IT employees father is a farmer cultivating their ancestral land in their hometown village. This year, he envisions that there could be some good market for onions, hence sows the Onion’s into his farm. He irrigates that onion farm on time, takes care from all the natural calamities like unseasonable rain, hailstorm etc, and harvests good quality onion crop and takes it to the market for selling. In the market when he sells those onions and gets a payment receipt.. on it, he was actually asked to pay ₹₹₹ rupees from his own pocket, in return of the onions which he just now sold into market…..

Sooooooo, which story would you like to believe, first half… story of the IT Employee or the second half… story of his father who is a farmer.

If you think, the story of the IT Employee is just impossible to believe and at the same time and gave your silent nod to the story of his farmer father.. aren’t we doing some injustice to the Farmers ? What you think …….


We are IT Engineers, and our father is a farmer and its the time for us to give it back from where we came. Green Ecosystem is our baby step into this.. Visit our website and explore the world of Agro Ecosystem and see how you can get benefited from it.

Wildlife Conservation Strategy, 2002

Eco sensitive

Strategy 2002 talks about “protecting the interests of the poor and tribals living around protected areas”. The Strategy 2002 recommends that the settlement of rights of people inside protected areas should not become an excuse to exclude or reduce areas that are crucial wildlife habitats. If it had analysed the situation, it would have realised that such reduction is happening precisely because of the mistaken notion that people and wildlife cannot co-exist, and because politicians and vested interests have used people’s hostility to demand such reduction.
