CSIR Scientists Wear Un-ironed Clothes To Fight Climate Change!

| Updated: May 8, 2024 11:37

The objective is to save energy, protect the environment and spread awareness about climate change

Scientists of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), India’s largest civilian network of research laboratories, are coming to work on Mondays in wrinkled clothes in an effort to support climate change. 

CSIR has introduced the ‘Wrinkles Achhe Hain (WAH) campaign where employees can wear un-ironed clothes on Mondays. The council and its constituent laboratories have joined the campaign to remind everyone about saving energy, protecting the environment and spreading awareness about climate change, CSIR sources said.

“Let’s iron out climate change, not our clothes!” CSIR’s National Institute Of Science Communication and Policy Research posted on X.

CSIR, which is currently observing ‘Swachta Pakhwada’ from May 1 to 15, has kicked off the wrinkles campaign under the leadership of its first woman director-general, Dr N Kalaiselvi, who has initiated several environment-friendly measures. 

Carbon dioxide emissions

In a media interview, she said ironing each set of clothes amounts to carbon dioxide emissions. By wearing unironed clothes, one can prevent such emissions to some extent, she said. 

Though the CSIR’s initiative is symbolic, it inspires young scientists to innovate green technologies to help fight carbon dioxide emissions. 

In other energy-saving measures, the Kalaiselvi-led CSIR is also planning to reduce 10% electricity consumption across its laboratories. Recently, India’s largest climate clock was installed on top of the CSIR headquarters building.

CSIR has a network of 37 national laboratories, 39 outreach centres, an innovation complex and three units with a pan-India presence. It has 3,521 active scientists supported by about 4,162 technical and support personnel.
