He said everyone has a responsibility towards protecting the environment and leave a clean and sustainable environment for our future generations, he said. Biswajit also appealed to shopkeepers to minimise use of plastic bags and replace them with biodegradable carry bags. He said instead of just observing the day, we should all contribute in making the day's observance with India as the host meaningful. He said that it is time that each one of us realise the significance of the observance and make it more meaningful by our practical and active participation instead of just planting a sapling. As part of the observance, Biswajit also met with officers and staff of the department for a brief interaction, wherein, the officers and staff put forwarded their infrastructural needs for better and smooth functioning of the directorate.
