A sad state of affairs, we at our own individual level should take every step that we can in reducing or avoiding air pollution. And so here are some things every Delhiite should start doing:

1. Using Air Purifiers

3. Choosing Metro Over Cars

Delhi has become well connected, thanks to the metro; we have one of the best metro facilities and so we should make use of it! Not only is it cheaper and faster, but you get away with so much of traffic and its consequent pollution, fairly quickly. If that’s not possible, adopt carpooling methods.

4. Saying A Complete No No To Bonfires & Crackers

Diwali is a festival of lights, so let's keep it that way and burn diyas, candles and those beautiful fairy lights instead of pollution-causing crackers. Bonfires, too, should be avoided at all costs as they can be downright harmful to the air that you breathe.

5. Conserving Energy By Using Induction Instead Of Gas

Learn to conserve energy and turn off appliances and lights when you leave the room. Also, induction is a household essential these days, so save your monthly cylinder expenditure, and use your savings for something wiser!

6. Switching To Electric & Hybrid Cars

Hybrid cars use a combination of electricity and gas however electric cars are powered exclusively by electricity instead of gasoline and would help reduce the air pollution in Delhi. They are also more cost-effective, so no more empty wallets and pollution under control. *Raises collar, pats back*.
