The accumulation of these products has led to ever-increasing plastic pollution around the world. As plastic contains major toxic pollutants, it is catastrophic to not just the land but to air and water too. Now is the time to reduce drastically the usage of plastic. That’s why this year’s KVIFF puts this worldwide epidemic front and center. With in-depth panel discussions, workshops and seminars to highlight this devastating threat, KVIFF desires to spread awareness and find real-time and real-world solutions before it’s too late for our future generations. And all it takes to begin is one word, ‘No’! No to Plastic. Yes to earth.

All of us use toxic chemicals in everyday life, knowingly or unknowingly. Every Indian on an average uses 22-40 grams toxic chemicals every day. These toxic chemicals are linked to various types of cancers, nervous disorders, complications relating to hormonal imbalance, stomach disorders, skin diseases, respiratory diseases etc. So 2,00,000 kg of toxic chemicals dumped into River per Individual/ Day. Since No sewage treatment plants can treat these It becomes every individual’s responsibility to release waste water devoid of or reducing toxic load at least upto 60-70%. We can do this by making a few changes in lifestyle. Find out from resource persons of Jeevitnadi, how to create a Virtuous Cycle. Let’s move towards a ‘Toxin-free Lifestyle’!
