FIRECRACKERS AFFECT THE ENVIRONMENT
Fire Hazards: Sometimes rockets set fire to huts, heaps of dry grass and even houses.
Noise Pollution: Firecrackers make more noise than the allowed decibel limit.
Air Pollution: Smog caused by firecrackers is harmful when inhaled. It also causes reduced visibility. The Central Pollution Control Board of India has also banned firecrackers with a decibel level of more than 125 at a distance of 4mts from the bursting point.
FIRECRACKERS AFFECT ANIMALS
• The sound of bursting crackers can be quite traumatic to pets, as they cannot bear loud sounds.
• We know that dogs have an incredible hearing ability and they can detect sounds that cannot be heard by human beings. Shakuntala Majumdar, President of the Thane Society for Protection of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) says, "Their actual frequency range is 67Hz to 45kHz as compared to the human ear's range of 20kHz. Thus, firecrackers with low decibels can affect their temperament."
What Action We as Scouts/Guides are going to take?
We as Scouts/Guides going to take action on this Diwali as “Scouts Make Green Diwali” that means we are not going to use Crackers in our Home and we are also going to awarness campaign to our friends and family members and in our locality to avoid Crackers and protect our environment from AIR & NOISE POLLUTION. As we have COVID Pandemic situation we also need to think of celebrating it in a safe way right. This activity pack will guide you to do some activity to take part in making a green pollution free diwali and also make you to enjoy it.
