EcoSphere believes that the solution to environmental problems could be found in The Vedas. It talks about the five element by which our mother Earth is made up of. "The Pancha Mahabhuta" or "five great elements" are bhūmi (earth), ap or jala (water), tejas or agni (fire), marut - vayu or pavan (air or wind) and vyom or shunya (space or zero) or akash (aether or void).
The time has come to take concerted efforts to protect eachessential element of the environment. At EcoSphere, we believe that only massawareness and education will help us our targets related to environmentconservation. Taking care of these essential elements will only help us resolvethe existing problems with the environment.
