Social Media Poster: Global Recycling Day 2022

#Recycling is unfortunately touted as the solution to #EndPlasticPollution. Companies want us to believe that as long as plastic is recycled consistently, there is nothing wrong with the vast amounts of plastic they are producing.

What they #FailedToMention is that 1) not all plastic are recyclable 2) even recyclable plastics are not recyclable everywhere - the technology specific to that type of plastic needs to be available 3) plastics are not recyclable endlessly - after a period of recycling, every bit of plastic ever produced will only end up in the landfill or an incinerator.

Press Release: Guidelines for Safe Digital Transaction | World Consumer Rights Day 2022

Fri, 18/03/2022 - 09:09
Author

The internet has transformed how financial services work. It has brought in ease and convenience at levels we have never known before. But along with this have come the scams - clever, complicated schemes that either steal our identity and then our money or get us to willingly part with our money, and personal details. No one is exempt from this; but particularly vulnerable are the senior citizens and semi-literate population who have been forced to come to terms with a cashless society. The consumer guidance seminar on safe financial services organised by Citizen consumer civic Action Group, together with FEDCOT brought together experts to speak directly to consumers on staying safe online.

Social Media Poster: FoPL - Nutrition Labels

Mon, 14/03/2022 - 11:21

In India, nutritional labels on foods indicating high levels of dangerous nutrients (like salt, sugar and fats) are not yet mandatory. These three nutrients are implicated in the increase in incidence of cardiovascular conditions, some types of cancer and diabetes. We need clear food labels to save lives.

Press Release: National Pedestrians' Conference 2022

How safe are pedestrians on our roads?

India is a nation of walkers. According to the 2011 census, one third of all work trips are by foot. Women walk to work more than men. And 60% of school journeys are by walk (NSO). Indian roads are unsafe for walkers. Almost 26,000 pedestrians, an 85% increase in the last 5 years, have died on Indian roads. Chennai’s OMR stretch alone sees as many as 34 pedestrian deaths a year. 90% of these deaths were from pedestrians trying to cross the road (Greater Chennai Traffic Police, 2019).

We urgently need better policies, better street design and better enforcement to keep India’s walkers safe.
