Increased usage of ACs, Industrial pollution and deforestation are some of the main reasons of global warming. Un-planned design and construction material while constructing buildings are responsible for extensive energy consumption. Use of traditional building materials also cause top soil erosion, thereby devastating the land’s cultivation potential permanently.
 
However with small steps taken by all, the impact on the planet can be reduced considerably. Below is a quick checklist to help reduce the impact global warming:
