GREEN YEAR RESOLUTIONS FOR THE NEW YEAR 2016

The year 2015 wouldn’t be complete without the requisite guilt about past behaviour and a passionate avowal to “do better” this New Year. But before you pull out your crumpled copy of last year’s resolutions, with the determination to get it right this time — exercise more, lose weight, eat healthier, spend less money and more time with family — consider “greening” your resolutions. The beauty of living a greener life is that, not only you will be contributing to a healthier World, you and your family will be healthier too.

It has been revealed in a study that people who feel a greater connection to nature and their communities are less likely to describe themselves as depressed or anxious — this is called “Ecotherapy.”

Once you resolve to ride your bicycle more and drive less, you would lose that last few kilos of baby weight which you thought was yours forever, and would cancel your gym membership. Once you resolve to watch less TV and watch more sunsets, you will find yourself more relaxed. Once you resolve to source healthier food from a neighbouring organic farmer or store, you will find yourself enjoying more homemade food with your children and relying less on sodium-soaked, highly processed foods.

Here are a few ideas to help get you going on your green resolutions:

GREEN YOUR EATING – For many of us, a “greener” life starts with our Food Habits, After all, we are served nature three times a day. If you’re aware that your family (or you!) relies on drive-thrus or take-out more than you’d like, start with a pledge to eat at least four meals a week in your home from fresh, organic ingredients. Involve the whole family. Even small children can grate cheese and help set tables. Find a local farmer, which of course you wouldn’t find in most parts of urban India, in that case, ask your grocery store / Vegetable vendor (of course the standard type) to source more locally/organically grown or raised food products.

The benefits are almost immediate. A study conducted revealed that children eating conventional (Un-Organic) diets all tested positive for common pesticides in their systems. Within a week of switching to an organic diet, the pesticides in their bodies dropped to undetectable levels. When the children switched back to their conventional diets, pesticide levels rose too.

GREEN YOUR RIDE – Use your car only on weekends or for family outings, when the whole family goes out together. Do not use the car when you have to go to the office or your shop all alone. Try to use local transport, or share the cabs and the best but the most beneficial and difficult mode of transport would be cycling to your destination. Walk as much as you can, walk to the nearby grocery store or milk vendor or the book store. Walk out for lunch from your office in lunch break, walk everywhere if time permits. Though this will require you to plan everything in advance i.e. what work needs to be done when. So, it will also make you more organized. These will not only save costs, it will also improve the health of you and your family and most importantly, the improved health of the Planet Earth is worth the toil.

Even if it’s impractical to completely give up your four wheeler’s or fossil fuel driven two wheeler’s, try to take alternative transportations or seek out the most fuel-efficient vehicle you can afford.

GREEN YOUR DÉCOR – For some of us, living Greener starts with giving our home a healthy facelift by using zero-VOC paints, sourcing eco-friendly renovation supplies, using plants as decoration, letting the sunlight in, using energy efficient lighting, using organic and natural materials, using energy efficient windows, eco-friendly wall coverings and eco-friendly tiles and floorings.

And most importantly getting rid of the poison plastic — PVC from our homes. At least, you can just take simple but important steps like pulling down that vinyl shower curtain and replacing it with one made of organic cotton, hemp or LDPE plastic.

GREEN YOUR CLEANING – If you’re a cleaning fanatic or just a weekend warrior, resolve to Green your cleaning. Simply by switching from conventional cleaning liquids to eco-alternatives can dramatically improve your indoor air. A study revealed that on cleaning day, the indoor air pollution – contaminated with noxious gases as acetone, camphor, benzaldehyde and diethylene glycol – can be hundreds, or even thousands of times worse than outside. Fortunately, greener cleaners are increasingly easy to find. Or, if saving money is part of your plan, make your own cleaners. It’s surprisingly simple: Stock up on baking soda, white vinegar, castile soap, perhaps some Borax. Then add the one ingredient you never see on any label – elbow grease (hard physical work), which will also help you burn off some excess calories. Greener, Cleaner and Leaner!

CREATE A PLAN AND STICK WITH IT – Yes, this is the toughest part. For most of us, it’s easy to resolve to save the planet, feed the hungry, find a cure for cancer and create lasting world peace. It’s the “how” that trips us up every single time.

Hence, we take the advice from those experienced and accomplished goal achievers, who advice that, Create small steps that you can tweak over the year to accomplish your overall goal. One should not focus on what they can’t do, but on what they can. For example, rather than saying “I can’t drive my car to work,” think “I can take the train or bus and read a novel” or “I can ride my bicycle and skip the gym.”

“Once we become comfortable with one step,” then, “we become aware that slowly other parts of our life have changed more positively as well….” Or else, When, we are overloaded with clutter, pollution, weight, we become exhausted fighting off the effects of that altogether.

One shouldn’t laugh at “change the world” resolutions. “There is no order of miracles in intentions,” which means that “yes, we can solve world peace and other ambitious intentions.” However, we should be able to harness the “taming power of the small”,  in other words, break down resolutions into smaller intentions that contribute to the whole. “This is particularly germane for the Green movement,” however, one should promise to his / her own small part, and ultimately we will save the planet.”

“You change the things you can change easily,” and “Before you know it, you’ve changed yourself.… and that’s when you’re really there as a Green Loving human being.”

Make this New Year (2016), your eco-friendliest yet!

ZENITEX WISHES MERRY CHRISTMAS

zenitex merry christmas 241215

DURING  THE  SEASON OF CELEBRATION  WE  NEED  TO  SHOW EXTRA CARE  FOR  THE ENVIRONMENT

HERE ARE SOME IDEAS TO HELP CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS WHILE CARING FOR THE EARTH…

A festival doesn’t have to be a burden on the environment. With a little effort and imagination, we can reduce the environmental impact of the holiday season.

BUY LESS : Some holiday gifts fill a practical need and need to be bought new. But many gifts are really gestures of thoughtfulness. You can give more while spending less.

NOT ALL GIFTS HAVE TO BE STORE-BOUGHT : You can give more while spending less by giving gifts that are personal and unique. While young children may favour the bright, shiny store-bought item, most adults appreciate anything that shows thoughtfulness. 

THINK ‘GREEN’ – BUY SMART

GO FOR LOCALLY MADE GIFTS : Many gifts in today’s marketplace come from faraway places from around the world, and the impact of transportation contributes significantly to greenhouse emissions and global warming. Local craft fairs, artisan shops and handicrafts are a good source for a gift that come without the added costs of transportation and makes a minor impact on greenhouse emissions and global warming. And gifts made locally often have a story which goes with the gift, since the artisan and the origin of the gift are known.

GO FOR GIFTS MADE FROM RECYCLED SOURCES : People are promoting recycled products to save the environment. There are many individuals working from home and running cottage industries and also small businesses who develop great products using recycled materials. Supporting these businesses helps many people sustain their life cycles and also reduces the waste stream while promoting the concept of making best use of available materials.

merry christmas

GO FOR BATTERY-FREE GIFTS : Battery sales are at maximum during the festival season. Discarded batteries are an environmental hazard. Even rechargeable batteries finally find their way into the waste stream. Hence, avoid gifts which require batteries to operate; this will help in having less impact on the environment.

GO FOR VIOLENCE FREE CHILDREN’S TOYS : There is too much violence in the world, and the new wave of video games for children is disturbing. We should remember the theme of Festivals is “Peace on Earth”. There are many toys and games that are fun, and nurture children’s creativity and sense of active play.

RE-GIFTING IS OK : People discuss a lot about the etiquette behind the trend to ‘re-gift’, that is, to pass on a gift you received but do not need. Actually there requires being no discussion. Re-gifting makes perfect sense. If you receive something you really don’t need, look for ways you can reuse this gift by passing it on to someone who can use it. Of course, re-gifting needs to be done with care so as not to offend the original giver, but keeping a gift you don’t need is wasteful.

LOWER THE IMPACT OF HOLIDAY LIGHTING : Earlier, the house with the most decorative holiday lights used to be considered the ‘best’. Times have changed. The cost of electricity goes way beyond the utility bill. Moreover, electricity drains natural resources. 

REDUCE THE SIZE OF OUTDOOR LIGHTING DISPLAYS : A smaller presentation of lights can still be attractive, and more appropriate in the ‘season of giving’. Saving electricity is also a way of giving, since conserving resources benefits everyone. Use LED lights for decoration. LED (Light Emitting Diode) holiday lights, use up to 95% less energy than larger, traditional decorative bulbs and last up to 100,000 hours when used indoors. LED decorative lights use 0.04 watts per bulb, 10 times less than mini bulbs and 100 times less than traditional decorative bulbs. As an added bonus, if one of the LED lights burns out the rest of the strand will stay lit. Turn tree lights and outdoor house decorative lighting at bedtime
It’s simply a waste of energy to leave the holiday lights on at night after everyone’s gone to sleep.

GO FOR HOMEMADE CARDS : Store-bought Festive Occasion Cards are Rich, Elegant AND expensive. They also consume a huge amount of natural resources for a throw-away item. The amount of cards sold in a country like the US during the holiday season would fill a football field 10 stories high, and requires the harvesting of nearly 300,000 trees, nearly the same or probably more natural resources would be used during festive seasons in India. Homemade cards may not be as professional, but they are more personal and just as appreciated. Making the cards is also a fun activity for the family during the weeks before a festival.

USE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY WRAPPING PAPER AND REUSE OR RECYCLE GIFT PACKING MATERIALS : Select wrapping paper that is made using fibres, or recycled paper. A beautiful wrapping job can be done without having to use metallic wrapping paper. This Metallic ‘Paper’ is difficult to recycle and it has no value for use as mulch since there are heavy metals used in the foil paper. Foil gift wrap is also harder to reuse, since it wrinkles and creases easily when the gift is being unwrapped. When you receive Large wrapped presents they usually have large enough uncreased sections so that can be be reused for wrapping smaller gifts. If you open large gift package with care, the paper can be set aside for re-use for other gift-giving occasions. Fancy ribbons and bows, of course, can be stored in a box till next time when you’ll appreciate having them around and not having to buy new ones. Try not to use tapes if you’re going to use ribbon to finish off your wrapping, so that the wrapping paper can be reclaimed, and it’s easier for the recipient to save the wrapping for reuse. There are many options like making Gift bags using fabric scraps, or wrapping can be done using comic strips from the paper, old calendars, maps, posters and more. Bubble wrap can be stored for reuse, or recycled. Foam packing chips are not easily recycled; hence, if you don’t want to store this material for reuse, take it to the nearest courier service who deal in online retail marketing, they will accept it for their own use. Cardboard boxes should be opened flat and set out for recycling; storing and reusing these boxes is even better as no additional energy is used in remanufacturing.

Much of the environmental costs associated with the holidays can be reduced by simple awareness and some pre-planning.

FOR CHRISTMAS CHOOSE A LIVE CHRISTMAS TREE : Although plastic Christmas trees are reusable from year to year, real trees are the more sustainable choice. Plastic trees are made of petroleum products (PVC), and use up resources in both the manufacture and shipping. While artificial trees theoretically last forever, research shows that they are typically discarded when repeated use makes them less attractive. Discarded artificial trees are then sent to landfills, where their plastic content makes them last forever. Live trees, on the other hand, are a renewable resource grown on tree farms, that are replanted regularly. They contribute to air quality while growing, and almost ninety percent are recycled into mulch. Live trees are usually locally grown and sold, saving both transportation costs and added air pollution. Live trees also smell like Christmas!

CONNECT WITH NATURE : Festivals are time for giving, and a time for family. All the festivals we have in India and globally, relate to this common chord of giving. What a great opportunity to start a family tradition of giving back to the earth and instilling the values of sustainable living to your children, friends and community. On any festival we can start an annual, earth-friendly family tradition! It will also get you outdoors for a few hours to build an appetite for the big dinner that always follows our festivities.

ANNUAL FESTIVAL DAY BIRD COUNT : Pickup your binoculars, to local birds, a small pad or journal for each participant and walk a course through your neighbourhood, local park or countryside. Try to identify and count every bird you see, and make a note of it in your journal. At the end of the hike, list the species seen and number of birds per species. There’s always a surprising discovery, and the activity highlights the presence and value of our feathered friends. Compare the results from former years and you’ll love doing this activity and learn fantastic details of local bird population and their migration habits. This is a great family activity because even the youngest eyes are just as good at spotting the birds and contributing to the event. 

FAMILY NATURE HIKE : A peaceful walk through nature on the holiday will be remembered and valued more than the cricket match score. Plan your walk before the holiday meal while everyone still has lots of energy.

NATURE RESTORATION ACTIVITY : Planting a small tree together symbolizes the value of nature. An hour spent cleaning up or enhancing a natural area also enriches the giver and acknowledges nature as the source of our well-being.

DECORATE A TREE FOR THE BIRDS : Place seed bells, cones with peanut butter and seed trays on any tree in your yard, preferably a tree in the open. To attract a wide variety of birds, use varied seed types such as black oil sunflower seed, wild bird mixed seed and nyjer seed bells. This is a great activity for kids, and offers an important food source for birds during the winter.

“PLAN WITH YOUR FAMILY A “FESTIVE NATURE’S” DAY!

TOP 10 BENEFITS OF TREES IN URBAN AREA : ZENITEX

This blog is a part of Zenitex initiative and its passion for the value of urban trees and greenspaces, and it helps in enhancing our communities.

Large-mature-trees-provide-many-benifits-to-our-cities

We love trees! Many people enjoy looking at trees, even occasionally planting one on World Environment Day. While the general opinion is in favour of trees, we are sometimes hesitant to have them in urban or suburban settings near our homes and streets because we’re intimidated by the damage they can cause if they fall or the effort they can require to maintain or more frequently a building developer or owner of the house will not like trees on the campus as they will lose on space. In reality, a properly chosen and placed tree requires little maintenance after establishment, and as long as that maintenance is attended to, the chances of a tree crashing down on your house without warning are low. But over and above that, urban trees are important because they provide tremendous benefits to our environment, communities, health, and even economy. Below are the top 10 benefits of urban trees.

#10: Producing Oxygen : You might wonder that oxygen is the most important part of our life, then why are we placing this benefit at the bottom of the list? Though Trees produce oxygen, the amount produced by urban trees isn’t much compared to the amount produced by the oceans and forests of the world, and that oxygen finds its way through the atmosphere to areas far from oceans and large forests in its unique ways.

#9: Noise Reduction/Screening : Trees help create a quite spot in the city and they also buffer the noise from the busy road in the city or highway. Not only they reduce some of the sound physically, but they also mask unpleasant sounds with their own soothing noises of rustling leaves and birdsongs.

#8: Wildlife Habitat : Wildlife cannot exist much without trees, Wildlife provides opportunities for informal education and nurturing curiosity, it is essential to our urban ecosystem. Hundreds of species of native insects live amongst the Native trees which in turn feed birds and other animals. Hence, making the Native Trees valuable.

#7: Radiation Protection from UV : A tree’s shade reduces UV exposure and delays sunburn. The benefit varies and depends on the density and spread of the canopy, however, dense shade offers up to 95% reduction in UV radiation.

#6: Improves Water Quality : Whenever we have heavy rains in our cities, we are at risk for a combined sewer overflow. This means that so much rain water is flowing off of our paved surfaces and into our sewer system that raw sewage overflows and gets into our natural waterways. Trees can reduce the number and severity of combined sewer overflows by collecting rain on leaves, bark, trunk and in the soil.

#5: Greenhouse Gas Reduction : Trees use the carbon dioxide in the air to make the sugars they need to live, and this helps offset the carbon dioxide we produce both biologically and through burning fossil fuels. An acre of full grown trees, in one year can consume carbon dioxide which is equal to carbon dioxide emitted by an average car while driven for 42,000 kilometres.  Our urban forests aren’t large enough to totally compensate for the amount of carbon dioxide we produce, but they can certainly reduce it.

#4: Air Quality Improvement : Producing oxygen and capturing carbon dioxide are types of air quality improvement; however, trees don’t stop here. They also reduce air pollution as the trees catch particulate matter in the air that might otherwise turn into unhealthy smog or contribute to health issues like asthma.

#3: Health Benefits : Trees offer a few amazing and substantial health benefits. Trees reduce asthma and respiratory disease by reducing air pollution. Only by being around trees and other plants can have psychological effects similar to antidepressants and Attention Deficit Disorder medication, and they have been shown to reduce stress too. Hospital patients with a view of greenery recover faster and require less pain medication and have lesser complications than other patients without such a view.

#2: Beauty (Aesthetic) and Socio-Economic Benefits : We naturally understand the aesthetic benefits of trees. They’re beautiful, and they make the spaces around them more beautiful. The socio-economic benefits of trees are less obvious, but studies have shown that trees reduce crime rates and increase business sales, moreover, they also reduce traffic speeds. We already know that they increase property values and strengthen communities.

#1: Cooling and Energy Savings : Not all of these benefits can be measured in Rupees and Paisa, but this one can. Trees reduce heat through shade and evapotranspiration (as they pull water from the soil, more evaporates from the leaves and has a cooling effect), and in winters they act as windbreakers to reduce cold. Adding greenery to cities can reduce or even eliminate the urban heat island effect. The urban heat island effect explains that urban areas tend to be substantially warmer than suburban or rural areas due to the lack of green space and the abundance of heat reflecting surfaces like glass and asphalt (Tar). photo

These 10 are by no means the only benefits of urban trees, and many of these could be broken down into several separate benefits,
but this gives a glimpse about just how essential trees are in our communities.

We don’t need to be afraid of trees; we need to embrace them and the benefits they provide.

NATIONAL ENERGY CONSERVATION AWARD FOR ZENITEX

12 pr

NATIONAL ENERGY CONSERVATION AWARD

National Energy Conservation Award by Ministry of Power, Government of India (Presented by The President of India His Excellency Shri Pranab Mukherjee in presence of Union Minister of Power Shri Jyotiraditya Scindia). Zenitex has created a record by winning this prestigious award in the 1st position for Three consecutive years. Mr. Viral Desai, CEO – Zenitex, is the youngest entrepreneur to have become a part of the National Energy Conservation Award Ceremony & receive this award.

 

A FEW THINGS YOU CAN DO TO CONSERVE ENERGY

Whenever you save energy, you not only save money, you also reduce the demand for such fossil fuels as coal, oil, and natural gas. Less burning of fossil fuels also means lower emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), the primary contributor to global warming, and other pollutants.

You do not have to live in discomfort to achieve these savings. Now there is an energy efficient alternative for almost every kind of appliance or light fixture. That means that consumers have a real choice and the power to change their energy use on a revolutionary scale.

The average citizen of a developing country like India produces about 2 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. Together, we use Crores of Rupees worth of energy every minute, night and day, every day of the year. By exercising even a few of the following steps, you can cut your annual emissions by thousands of Kilos and your energy bills by a significant amount!

  • Turn your fridge down. Refrigerators account for about 20% of Household electricity use. Make sure that its energy saver switch is turned on (if it has one) or else keep it at the minimum required cooling. Also, check the gaskets around your refrigerator/freezer doors to make sure they are clean and sealed tightly.
  • Select the most energy-efficient models when you replace your old appliances. Look for the Energy Star Label (preferably 5 star) – for assurance that the product saves energy and prevents pollution. Buy the product that is sized to your typical needs – not the biggest one available. Replacing a typical 1973 refrigerator with a new energy-efficient model, saves nearly 1.4 tons of CO2 per year. Investing in a solar water heater can save around 4.9 tons of CO2 annually.
  • Set your Washing Machines to the warm or cold water setting, not hot. Switching from hot to warm for two loads per week can save nearly 200 Kgs of CO2 per year.
  • Avoid over heating of water in water heaters. Keep thermostat at medium levels. Choose a right sized water heater so that electricity is not wasted in heating extra water that is not required. Choose efficient (5 star rated water heaters). Do not keep water heater on for longer durations. Just switch it on a few minutes before you need hot water and switch it off once your work is done. Using right insulation around water heater and pipes can save electricity. You can use thermal insulating paint on water heaters to save heat loses. Turn down your water Heater / Geyser thermostat. Thermostats are often set to 60 degrees C when 50 C is usually fine. Each 10 degree reduction saves around 250 Kgs of CO2 per year for an electric water / geyser, or 200 Kgs for a gas heater / geyser. If every household turned its water heater thermostat down 10 degrees, we could prevent millions of tons of annual CO2 emissions.
  • Use less hot water by installing low-flow shower heads. They deliver an invigorating shower, and save Kilos of CO2 per year for electrically or gas heated water / geyser.
  • Be careful not to overcool rooms. Keep the thermostat at 25 it is an ideal cooling temperature in most parts of India. Clean or replace air filters as recommended. Energy is lost when air conditioners have to work harder to draw air through dirty filters. Cleaning a dirty air conditioner filter can save 5 percent of the energy used.
  • Buy energy-efficient LED bulbs for your most-used lights. Although they cost more initially, they save money in the long run by using only 1/4 the energy of an ordinary bulb and also lasting longer. They provide an equivalent amount of bright, attractive light. Only 10% of the energy consumed by a normal light bulb generates light. The rest just makes the bulb hot.
  • Whenever possible, walk, bike, car pool, or use mass transit. Every Litre of petrol you save avoids 2.5 kg s of CO2 emissions. cycling
  • When you next buy a car, choose one that gets good mileage.
  • If your car has an air conditioner, make sure its coolant is recovered and recycled whenever you have it serviced.
  • Reduce the amount of waste you produce by buying minimally packaged goods, choosing reusable products over disposable ones, and recycling. For every Kilo of waste you eliminate or recycle, you save energy and reduce emissions. Cutting down your garbage by half of one large trash bag per week saves at least 500 KGs of CO2 per year, making products with recycled materials, instead of from scratch with raw materials, uses 30 to 55% less for paper products, 33% less for glass, and a whopping 90% less for aluminium.
  • When you plan major home improvements, consider some of these energy saving investments. They save money in the long run, and their CO2 savings can often be measured in tons per year. 
  • Insulate your walls and ceilings. This can save 20 to 30 percent of home cooling bills and reduce CO2 emissions.
  • Paint your house a light colour if you live in a warm climate or a dark colour if you live in cold climate. Reductions in energy use resulting from appropriate painting can save tons of CO2 emissions per year.
  • Work with your employer to implement these and other energy-efficiency and waste-reduction measures in your office or workplace. Form or join local citizens’ groups and work with local government officials to see that these measures are taken in schools and public buildings.
  • Stay abreast of environmental issues on both local and national levels, and write or call your elected officials to express your concerns about energy efficiency and global warming.
  • Plant more Trees around your surroundings or if not possible, grow plants in your balcony or terrace. (Each tree also directly absorbs about 11 KGs of CO2 from the air annually) trees and plantations
  • Try to switch over to Solar Energy wherever possible. This can be done collectively by apartment dwellers and their committees and even schools and organizations can plan such a switch over. sola panesl on homes
  • Implement Rain Water Harvesting for your societies, schools, offices and factories.rain water harvesting diagram
  • Reduce use of plastics in your day to day life, starting simply by avoiding taking plastic carry bags from vendors or shops.
  • Encourage, Support and Patronize those individuals and / or companies who are active in implementing Energy Conservation methods in their day to day life and in their work places.

VISION ZENITEX – RENEWABLE ENERGY FOR ALL

All of us have understood the importance of renewing things, be it our Driving Licences, Our Passports, Our Website Subscriptions, News Paper Subscriptions and so on. However, all these doesn’t sound as interesting as Renewable Energy! Sources of Renewable energy are Solar energy, Wind energy, hydropower, geothermal energy, and biomass energy. This is the future, if we want to have one.

It is the buzzword loved by energy conservationist. The motivation behind this growing change is pollution, warming oceans, climate change, water shortages to name a few. These factors are driving us towards “an energy deficient world”. If we don’t change our path, then, Beware! The world will be reduced to a small habitat due to the lack of Oxygen. It is more scary than it sounds. However, we know, if we change our practices now and instead of the fossil fuels (such as coal, oil, and natural gas), turn to renewable energy; we can maintain the safety limit that the scientists caution us about.

Greenpeace International, in collaboration with the Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics, Systems Analysis & Technology Assessment at the German Aerospace Center, have made the announcement of making the impossible possible. They have planned to have a 100% renewable energy world by 2050. what we need is: “A strong, long-term goal, phasing out fossil fuels and nuclear power by 2050 through a just transition to 100% renewable energy, as well as the protection and restoration of forests.” [External Source]

Recently during COP21 in Paris, all the world’s nations have come to a consensus on the need to cut greenhouse gas emissions. This in itself is regarded by many observers as an achievement in itself and is being hailed as “historic”.

The key elements of this deal are : [Source BBC News]

• To keep global temperatures “well below” 2.0C (3.6F) above pre-industrial times and “endeavour to limit” them even more, to 1.5C

• To limit the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by human activity to the same levels that trees, soil and oceans can absorb naturally, beginning at some point between 2050 and 2100

• To review each country’s contribution to cutting emissions every five years so they scale up to the challenge

• For rich countries to help poorer nations by providing “climate finance” to adapt to climate change and switch to renewable energy.

What’s more, not only is this transition possible, but it will create jobs and is cost-competitive. The investment is substantial, however, because renewables don’t require fuel, they will more than cover the costs of the required investment.

The solar industry itself could employ millions which can be 10 fold more than the employed currently. Thanks to the major polluting countries, like China for their lesser use of coal in 2014 that the global energy related CO2 emissions remained stable in spite of the economic growth. These countries have already begun investing in renewables.

Since, the last decade, entrepreneur like Mr. Viral Desai of Zenitex implemented the clever ways to power and profit using nature’s gift. He believes that renewable energy has the potential to boost the profitability of the business by being cost-effective in the long run. Today, the world is competing for to be the first in renewables be it a solar powered airport or a country running completely on renewables.

The way Greenpeace is assisting country like Greece by their initiative “Solarize Greece” crowd-funding campaign in order to help Greece get rid of the burden of fossil fuels that are holding it down economically and for Greece to fight its way back out of the crisis. We at Zenitex also would like some attention towards us in India. Where, in one corner of India, a Small Medium Enterprise, with its limited resources is ushering in a change, which, considering the size of Zenitex is a huge step. However, at Local, State, National and Global level these efforts have gone unnoticed except for receiving a few awards from the Government of India. Awards surely give motivation, but, motivation without resourceful support is like a handicap. Awards only will not make the world Green….

Gradually, everyone is realizing the truth and recognizing the blatant fact that, Coal, Oil and Natural Gas are limited resources on earth and they are bound to be exhausted sooner than later. Without hesitation we should make the difference at our personal, company, state, national level as per our capacity.

Today, green energy or renewable energy for the whole civilization may sound as a passage from a fairy tale, however, with our inclination and enthusiasm this can surely come true.
It is time for action – time to join the revolution…..

CLOSE TO NATURE – CLOSER TO CREATOR : ZENITEX

IF THIS GREENERY DOESN’T IMPRESS YOU – NOTHING ELSE CAN

When we go out on a picnic on the green fields, we feel a different energy within us. We feel we are growing in wisdom. We feel we are growing in confidence. We feel we are growing in faith. We feel we are growing in belief. All this because when we are at that time surrounded by things which themselves grow, like the trees, the grass, the plants and so on. If all the time you lock yourself up in an office or a workplace where you are surrounded by machines, may be computers or production machinery, without giving yourself a GREEN break – you seize to grow. Your confidence, your wisdom, your faith, your belief everything will begin to go in the negative. You become mechanical. Whereas, to be with trees, grass, plants or any type of GREENERY makes you feel beautiful. They let you live. They give you motivation, a thrust of vigour, they inspire you immensely and suddenly you feel the whole energy is flowing within you. The smell of the wet earth during rains or even otherwise, plugs you off from your hectic life, you suddenly travel into a different world. The joy of birds, the sounds of the hustling trees, the fragrance of flowers, the stars, the moon, the sun, they all make a perfect setting for inner and spiritual growth. Being close to nature is being close to the creator.

We at Zenitex have a vision of GREEN. We desire to see the fascinating colourful butterflies fluttering outside our office windows, the chirping and humming of beautiful birds in our factory campus, their melodious singing making the rumblings of the machines sound like music. The fluffy tailed, naughty and adorable squirrels, running up and down the trees full of enthusiasm and stopping every little while to eat their find. Where, we can have a bare footed stroll on the soft GREEN grass during breaks.

ZENITEX SEEKS GOLD IN GREEN….

 

Gone are the days when Crude Oil was considered as Black Gold. The economics have changed. This Black Gold is the prime reason for deteriorating health of millions. Due to its consumption we face Pollution of difference types.

Who can stop this pollution or at least reduce it?

The answer is simple, WE CAN DO IT! What we need, is to realize and find an alternate source of energy. And then, we can reduce the use of current feed and start using “GREEN FUEL” and “GREEN ENERGY”. Though the progress will be slow, the impact of it will not be visible, but surely it will make a difference.

The environment will improve; the air we breathe will be fresh and thus, will eradicate the major health issues by default.

Zenitex initiated the GREEN drive and have been extremely successful in achieving its goals of energy conservation. This drive was greatly appreciated and acknowledged by State and National Governments of India, due to which Zenitex was showered with many awards in energy conservation.

The UNIQUE measures we have taken to promote ENERGY CONSERVATION by technical upgradations are :

  1. Quality bag filter installed at the boiler according to the guidelines of GPCB, which controls and monitors the pollution standards in the state of Gujarat.
  2. The water scrubber operates by using the waste water, which is one more feat of energy conservation.
  3. Investment in renewable sources of energy (i.e. wind mills) for power generation. Hence, reducing the pollution and promoting a healthy eco system.
  4. Exhaust fan Highest in the factory constantly charged by wind power.
  5. Provision of a Conveyor Belt for the firing of the boiler.

We at Zenitex believe that “ALL THE SPECIES HAVE THE RIGHT TO UNPOLLUTED AIR, WATER AND SOILS, IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN THE HEALTH OF THE ECOSYSTEM”. The long term goal of Zenitex is environmental protection, which can be completely achieved in part through pollution prevention.

Hence, now is the time to act, to rise, time to wake up from our slumbers, gulp down some fresh air down our lungs and join the march towards the Future and make it “GREEN” and we are confident that we will change the concept of something “Precious” to being “GREEN”.

“GREENERY” is more precious than the Yellow Gold adorning our bodies, the reason being that if we exist and more importantly if we exist with good health, then only, the Yellow Gold will harmonize to adorn your personality, or else it doesn’t suit the carcases.

We at ZENITEX stand for “GREEN”, and for us “GOLD is GREEN”.

GO GREEN WITH ZENITEX

Hi, Friends!

Think about the design assignment of a tree. Can we design something that makes oxygen, sequesters, carbon, fixes nitrogen, distills water, provides habitat for hundreds of species, accrues solar energy as fuel, makes complex sugars and food, creates micro-climates, changes colours with the seasons and self-replicates? How is it done……?

We at Zenitex strongly believe in preservation of the green open spaces every year. We believe green environment enhances productivity and quality.

Thanks to our passion, specially of our CEO, Mr. Viral Desai, for planting trees and making our campus “GREEN” that we added a record number of trees & plants in a textile processing plant on 5th June to celebrate “World Environment Day”. We are very proud to host more than 1550 plants and trees in our campus and around. We plan to carry the drive further and fill every little open space with a plant / tree in a pot or otherwise. Moreover, We are  also planning drip irrigation technology for some passages, thus, also making it easy in maintaining the “Green Cover” by next year. We feel honoured when we say “We Work for Trees.

Thanks & Regards – Team ZENITEX
