One quality I admire about the most about Bhumi Pednekar is her concern for the planet earth. I feel she is the climate change warrior who takes climate conservation seriously. The actress has been in the forefront of raising awareness about incorporating sustainable practices into our everyday lives. To celebrate Nature Conservation Day, Bhoomi has put her some of her personal clothes to sell in auction.

The funds from the sale will be used for though Home For Hope Foundation. In an interaction with us, Bhoomi speaks about her concerns related to the environment and picking fashion to raise awareness about climatic change.

Here are the excerpts from the conversation:

On putting up her own personal fashion pieces for sale…

A year ago, I launched India’s first clothing environmental footprint calculator with Dolce Vee so we can all understand the environmental impact of each of our clothes. It was the first time such information was accessible to consumers in India, and helps us make more informed decisions on how we choose to buy. So, this year I wanted to take it forward and put up my own pieces in the circular fashion system as well

On people joining this moment

Once we all hear the numbers and see how huge an impact we can have just by participating in the circular economy, I’m sure everyone will join in – it’s an empowering shift we can all make today!

I so like this charity sale idea! If people buy these personals pieces, then over 1,99,986 liters of water and 260 kg of carbon can be conserved. The water percentage is equal to what a person can drink in over 109 years. Talking about the carbon, it is equivalent to driving over 1443 KM! That’s so huge! In that scenario, this is a better idea than to buy new manufactured clothes.

I think I am going to do my bit and you can also do it. The pieces are available on where fashion enthusiasts can have a look at Bhumi’s personal style favorites, while all contributing towards planet earth.

On work front Bhumi will be seen in Aanand L Rai‘s directorial Raksha Bandhan with Akshay Kumar. I am to excited to watch this film.
