The growing population and industrial revolutions have taken an excruciating toll on nature, the environment has suffered a lot and its time people start making the changes.
Prerna Prasad, a former TV journalist, an activist at heart, and a true environmentalist understood this need and came up with “ Ecoplore”. She started her career as a journalist at CNN-IBN and has also written a non-fiction novel ‘Love@Politics’.
Prerna Prasad is the founder and CEO of Ecoplore which is an aggregator platform for eco-hotels, it promotes eco-friendly holidays for people at exotic locations. While working as a journalist Prerna understood that corruption is the biggest issue that is a threat to us and it is us destroying the environment, without freshwater and air our survival would not be possible.
She is an activist and environmentalist and recognized the threat of environmental pollution and she knew the importance of letting this message reach the masses as only by the support of the mass population can we overcome the pollution and destruction of the mother earth.
Ecoplore is the brainchild and an initiative by Prerna Prasad that aims to limit the construction of concrete hotels and resorts that destroy the environment, instead, her platform promotes the use of eco-friendly hotel that displays the importance of nature to people and also helps in conserving the nature as it is without destroying the environment.
Ecoplore looks for two major factors, firstly the property should have 33% of greenery inside and secondly, the construction of these properties should be non-concrete.
Prerna Prasad took a big step and her idea is in itself a revolution focused to conserve the environment and help mother earth heal. She took it upon herself to bridge the widening gap between the eco-travelers and eco-stays. She wants to encourage and promote the population in choosing eco-friendly stays that will help in nurturing the environment and bring people close to nature and then can only her initiative truly be fruitful.
Prerna Prasad took the strong initiative in the environment movement to save the cutting of 50,000 tresses in South Delhi for CPWD and NBCC redevelopment projects. She patrolled day and night, filled complaints, took part in protests, and successfully her persistent efforts paid off when a penalty was imposed on the CPWD for cutting of trees.
Prerna Prasad is a youth icon who opposed the wrong policies of the government head-forward and made them change their wrong policies for destroying the environment. This earth is not our property and we do not have any rights to destroy and interfere in the natural cycle but we are doing it, hence it is our major responsibility to conserve the environment this is the core of all the efforts of Prerna.
Ecoplore has won a GOLD award by Outlook Responsible Tourism recently for all the courageous efforts and eco-friendly innovation by the startup of Prerna.
She is an inspiration to all of us and we too need to support her and help in the conservation of our environment, because nature is not from us but we are from nature.
