Actress Kalki Koechlin says adapting environmentally conscious fashion can make the world a better place.

“I grew up in an environment which is sustainable and eco-friendly in Auroville. I grew up with basic ethic of buying products which are sustainable,” Kalki told IANS in a recorded response.

“A lot of clothes which I wear are organic. Fashion is a big way through which we can change the environment… (We can change the world) by being environmentally conscious in our fashion statements and all our products,” she added.

The actress, who was speaking on the sidelines of Blue Carpet event, hosted by Sony BBC Earth for “Blue Planet II: One Ocean and The Deep”, feels that going organic is the way to go forward.

“If we start buying more organic products even for the household which are less harmful, it makes a huge difference.”

“If you cannot figure out stuff in your family, don’t expect figuring out stuff in your country and the rest of the world,” she said.

The actress also praised “Blue Planet II: One Ocean and The Deep”. Narrated by ace British broadcaster and naturalist David Attenborough, “Blue Planet II” released in 48 PVR screens in 22 cities on May 18.
