Mangalore, September 1, 2008:Samanvaya Mangalore along with Maria Jyothi Women Association & Catholic Sabha Shakthinagar had organized an awareness programme on Environment Protection & Plastic Eradication at Shakthinagar church hall on August 31, 2008.

The resource person Rev. Dr Ronald Cutinha director of Samanvaya said, the environment is the easy prey for all developmental activities.  In the name of development extensive deforestation has taken place thus decreasing the green belt.  Industries have let out their poisonous gases to atmosphere and liquid waste to rivers; plastic menace has brought in multifarious hazards on soil, water, animals, fish etc. Global warming due to excessive carbon dioxide and methyl gases has sounded the death knell of humanity while the depletion of ozone layer has been inviting serious threat of severe diseases on living creatures.

The only effective and efficient way to protect all living species is to be friendly with the environment. If we protect environment, environment will protect us; if we destroy environment the environment will show its anger through earthquakes, volcanoes, cyclones, global warming etc.

The Parish Priest Rev. Fr.Jayaprakash DSouza inaugurated the programme and requested the participants to live environment friendly life. The Catholic Sabha president Mr Yashavanth D.S. welcomed, secretary Anitha Dsouza proposed vote of thanks and Jacintha Monis compeered.  50 participants attended this awareness programme.  Earlier, parish children acted a skit on Environment.
