Abstract

Our living standard rose after the industrial revolution. Chemistry has brought about medical revolution in the middle of 20th century in which drugs and antibiotics might have discovered. The world’s food supply also increased enormously due to the discovery of new hybrid varieties, improved methods of farming, better and quality seeds, use of insecticides, herbicides and fertilizers. The quality of life on earth became much better due to the discovery of dyes, plastics, cosmetics and medicines. Soon, the ill effects of chemistry also became pronounced, main among them being the pollution of land, water and atmosphere. This is caused mainly due to the effects of byproducts of chemical industries, which are being discharged into the air, water and land. The use of toxic reactants and reagents also make the situation worse. Chemical industry developed many products that facilitate life, to extend human life. Industrial revolution has brought increased production but also waste material made to be consumed rapidly. As on today, maximum
pollution to the environment is caused by numerous chemical industries. Therefore, attempts have been made to design synthesis for manufacturing processes in such a way that the waste products are minimum, Sustainability has spread in waves with the slogan in the end of 20th century. Chemical industry using the principles of green chemistry began to take measures relating to sustainability and the environment. For a continually growing population and restricted resources in a sustainable future in a world where the idea of development in the 21st century is one of the biggest challenges of green chemistry. Our scientific research must work for the welfare of our people. One of the best ways is to increase the direct interface of science with society. We need to strengthen our policies, regulations, investments and management to achieve our sustainable goals. In order to attain Sustainable Development, we have to bridge our traditional knowledge and Modern Science. It is significant to understand the principles of green chemistry to leave a livable world for future generations. Green chemistry represents the pillars that hold up our sustainable future. It is clear
that many industries and research of many academics recognize the significance of green chemistry. The Green Chemistry is making us all to build a more sustainable, safer, progressive and prosperous mother planet for all humanity.

Keywords: Environmental pollution, Green chemistry, Safety environment, Sustainability.
