The actor and climate activist, who has been regularly advocating awareness for climate positive life choices and ecological conservation, has a special message for the people of our country.

Bhumi wants to encourage everyone to make small but sustained personal choices to avoid wasting natural resources and reduce one’s use of plastics and disposables.
Bhumi says, “I act for a living but I believe in being a stubborn optimist. Why? Because we have NO choice but to change our lifestyle choices and the way we live. Otherwise the air we breathe, the water we drink and the earth that we live on will not survive. This planet will become un-livable and our future will literally be clouded by pollution and man made waste.”
She adds, “For some years I have reached out to all of you to explain WHY we should choose climate positive ways. Small changes in our lives can make big changes to this planet. STOP using single-use plastic. Don’t produce more waste than you need to. Turn off the water tap, use water wisely. At least turn off the switches and the power connections at your home when you don’t use them.”
Bhumi further adds, “I have been inspired by so many climate warriors that I have met along the way. They give their time and continuous effort towards saving this planet. And I can’t be thankful enough to them. I do the same with my choices at home by recycling, re-using old clothes and living our lives with a reduced carbon footprint.”
As part of her initiative to be a climate warrior, Bhumi has rallied the industry constantly to educate people about this serious issue. She has united celebrity voices like Akshay Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, (WRITE MORE BIG NAMES) Arjun Kapoor and others to speak about how they have shifted to a more conscious living to maximise the message of ecological conservation.
In the past Bhumi has spoken at Harvard University on Climate Change and has also been part of an international initiative to raise awareness against climate change - the Global Climate Week in New York.
She says, “Be it in New York during the Global Climate Week or anywhere. I will always join activists and fellow climate warriors to call out to you to take care of our climate; to make sustainable living a lifestyle choice. I want You to join me on this change driving effort. Guys this is war- a war against pollution and against environmental degradation that is totally worth fighting. So come on board and be a climate warrior with me.”
