Tata Power has strived to be an avid advocate of environment conservation. In line with its vision, Club Enerji, the resource and energy conservation initiative, organised a plantation drive in the premises of Saboo Siddik Polytechnic and Seva Niketan, Byculla with a participation of 60 students from Queen Mary School, Grant Road and Sir Jacob Sassoon High School, Byculla.
With an aim to promote green and healthy living practices amongst the young minds of tomorrow, the drive witnessed the students planting various medicinal herbs such as Tulsi, Adulsa, Aloe Vera, Lemongrass and Mint. The intent was to educate students on the benefits of the vast repository of medicinal plants that are used in traditional medical treatments. About 100 sapling were planted by the students.
Commenting on the drive, Ms. Shalini Singh, Chief-Corporate Communications & Sustainability, Tata Power, said, “Tata Power, as an environmentally responsible organisation, has been passionate about building a sustainable future by educating the young minds of tomorrow. The growing shift to organic treatment for improving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is one of the motivators for us to organise such a drive. We would like to thank Saboo Siddik Polytechnic, Queen Mary School and Sir Jacob Sassoon High School for their enthusiastic participation.”
Through the drive, the students were also sensitised about the changing lifestyles and its impact on individuals’ well-being and with the use of basic herbs common ailments can be treated. For e.g. relieving headaches, tummy trouble and even irritation from bug bites. Some of the herbs can also be consumed in form of teas, used as garnish, applied topically as essential oil or consumed as a pill.

*India’s ‘Reflex Generation’
The idea of environmental consideration has been transformed from pre-planned, momentous, typically very public, collective acts from committed individuals – marches, protests, petitions – towards a more mass movement based on individual choices and decisions made every day. Such ‘micro-activism’ is no less effective, aggregating entire communities and demographic groups whose consideration the environment is defining their daily routines and home and at work. For such people, minimising environmental impact has become instinctive and natural; a reflex defining the decisions they make.
The impact of India’s ‘Reflex Generation’ is evident in the workplace; today, potential employees are basing their decisions on employers’ environmental credentials. According to Deloitte’s annual Generation Y survey , 76% Indian millennials claimed to have chosen employers whose values matched their own; a finding supported by other research indicating young people’s preference for employers who demonstrate a “genuine commitment” to corporate social responsibility, the environment, and sustainability.
Another way individuals mark their inclination towards protecting the environment is by subtly but consistently purchasing green products. In fact, in a Deloitte study, 38% respondents with a family monthly salary of Rs. 1 lakh or more were willing to pay 10% or more premiums for eco-friendly products. Other research suggests that 95% seek out brands that display responsible behaviour.
Finally, today’s environmental guardians have adapted their lifestyles to imbibe the core philosophy of environmental consideration into their day-to-day lives. The interest in electric vehicles for daily use is another example of how India’s younger citizens are attempting to be more environmentally conscious on a regular basis. Globally, 81% consumers claim to be prepared to make ‘personal sacrifices’ to address social, environmental issues. Such consideration reflects the ‘micro-activism’ at the heart of India’s ‘Reflex Generation’.
