Man's misadventures have created several problems for the entire mankind. He has polluted the five elements causing havoc on the earth. There is pollution everywhere in air, water, food and so on. His misdeeds coupled with his evil thoughts and feelings have degraded human life on the earth. If man acts in the righteous way, there will be no pollution at all.

Sathya Sai Baba, 25 February 1998

Swami says “Today the world is losing its ecological balance as man, out of utter selfishness, is robbing the mother Earth of her resources like coal, petroleum, iron, etc. As a result, we find earthquakes, floods and such other devastating natural calamities. Human life will find fulfillment only when ecological balance is maintained. Balance in human life and balance in Nature, both are equally important”.  

To honor Swami’s mission to create balance, members of the Sri Sathya Sai Organization participate and promote go-green activities. Specifically, programs that encourage use of biodegradable and compostable disposables, reducing waste, and placing ceiling on desires.
