ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION FROM USE AND THROW ATTITUDE OF THE HUMANS
In this present research paper the challenges in the sustenance of life and a dream of offering
our future a better place to live-in is discussed. Environmental degradation is the deterioration
of the environment through depletion of resources such as air, water and soil; the destruction
of ecosystems and the extinction of wildlife. We have only one EARTH. Our environment is
deteriorating through depletion and pollution of resources such as air, water and soil. There
are problems at different hierarchy-local, regional, national and global. Bangalore, one of
the major centers of outsourcing activity, has grown rapidly both demographically and
economically and as a result is facing myriad urban infrastructural and environmental
problems. Urban consumption is quite visible in the mushrooming of opulent apartment
complexes and upscale shopping malls, hotels, and restaurants. The elite and the poor
differ in their consumption patterns and therefore in their impacts on the environment. But,
environmental degradation is evident at both ends of the income spectrum- the rich pollute
due to the wasteful overuse of resources and the poor degrade the environment by surviving at
its expense. With increasing population and income, the lifestyle of urban residents is
changing. Urban India is thus becoming a ―throw – away society‖. The tonnage of solid
wastes is disposed of each day by our consumer society. This mounting problem is due to the
negligence attitude and shopping habits. The burden is on family ill- health and onset of
variety epidemics. The Tsunami, earthquakes, high temperature and certain unknown diseases
are instances of environmental disturbances.
