The environmental problems that are faced by the world today are gigantic. Earth’s limited resources are being pushed to the maximum by fast population progress. Global warming, encouraged by pollution and additional human actions, hovers to push our sphere outside its ability to sustain life.
Earth day, celebrated every year on 22nd April, aims to create awareness amongst the people all around the globe to protect and conserve the environment. Gaylord Nelson was the first person to start this movement after he experienced the 1969 colossal oil spill in California.
Motivated by the student anti-war effort, he understood that if he could communicate the awareness about air and water pollution, it would influence environmental safekeeping. The first Earth Day was led all across the US on 22nd April, 1970 which reinforced a community alarm for conservational calamity
Each of us has the control over our day-to-day choices and routine selections to make our households and societies more biologically friendly.
Taking some small but useful steps can help make a difference towards our environment–
- Planting saplings in your premises and motivate people to grow more trees.
- Switching off the lights and stop unnecessary consumption for electricity.
- Opt for public transportation and save fuel and reduce pollution.
- Keep the local garden or society premises clean and recycle materials.
We must surely contribute towards saving the environment not only on the Earth day but also on every day to conserve nature. Try to consume less energy and smaller quantities of resources, generate less waste, and join with others to conserve nature.
