Meet Children’s Author, Nita Ganguly!
Children of today will inherit a planet that isn’t very healthy!
Hello everyone! It’s not new information that our oceans are full of garbage. While there are no current figures of exactly how much garbage is in there, the National Academy of Sciences estimated in 1975 that around 14 billion pounds of garbage are added each year. We can no longer view our planet’s resources as inexhaustible. We must be educated and aware of our impact on its atmosphere, fresh water, soils, forests, and oceans.
Today, we’re so happy to introduce you to an author who is here to create awareness of environmental issues and urges Parents & kids to lead an environment friendly life. Please welcome Nita Ganguly, author of two wonderful & educational children’s book Polytrap and Hello Earth…Here We Come!
