He feels there needs to be awareness in people and people need to take responsibility. When he goes into the mountains he brings back the smallest wrapper he carries along. He feels even in the town people need to be aware and responsible about disposing the garbage properly. People need to understand that each one contributes to make the environment clean and everyones contribution matters.
