We “get” to live on this planet called Earth which makes every day an Earth day.
When I was in grade 1 my father use to tell me you should turn off the tap while brushing…. I use to look at him with a big question mark on my face!!!!
And he said It’s so easy to turn on the tap, but imagine if one morning you woke up, turned on the tap and nothing happened. How would your day be different?”
And once I asked him about my birthday party plans… in return he said let’s celebrate your birthday in very different way…. He invited all my friends and announced the competition of planting tree on road side of our colony. That time we were very happy because we got to play with mud…. and we didn’t know what a Nobel thing we were doing… and gradually I released that it was the best birthday I av ever celebrated. And till now I don’t forget to plant trees (if not possible on my birthday but) once in a year I do this…
Truly we “get” to live on this planet called Earth which makes every day an Earth day.
In last few hundred years the human development was rapid, we developed and adopted new ways of living, we built sky scrapers, we manufactured vehicles and electronics appliances and so on. All these ways of adaptations and changes contributed in making our life style better in many terms.
But when we were adopting and making changes in our life style we just ignored the price which we were paying. In this partial development we were unable to see that we were highly contributing towards destruction too, as we never thought of giving back responsibly what we have taken from our mother nature. This irresponsible attitude of just consuming the resources without ever trying to replenish them, contributed to destruction and this destruction has certainly surpassed all other benefits of our partial development.
Earth Day is the largest, most widely celebrated international environmental event. Earth Day helps celebrate Earth’s unique place in the universe. It is the only planet in our solar system teeming with incredible biodiversity. Learning about and protecting this biodiversity is what Earth Day is all about. People all over the world celebrate our efforts to protect plants and animals and to clean up the world we live in. Most people celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd each year.Senator Gaylord Nelson of the United States founded Earth Day. Earth Day was first celebrated on April 22, 1970 in the United States.
Making Earth-friendly Choices
There are many different things each of us can do to help protect species, keep Earth clean, and fix damage that has been done. For example, using fewer natural resources will help make sure there are enough resources to go around. It will also help make sure that future generations won’t run out of the things we all need, like clean water, air, and soil. When we don’t use resources in a responsible way, we may create pollution that can damage water, soil, air, and other parts of the environment.
Rock Garden in Chandigarh is one of the best example of RECYCLE n REUSE…. taking good care of our mother earth as it is completely built of industrial & home waste and thrown-away items.
Protecting Endangered Species
Along with pollution, things like habitat destruction and poaching are causing some species to become endangered.
Finding ways to protect and save endangered species is a primary goal of conservation groups.
Protect our vanishing world!!l
Earth Day celebrations are a great opportunity for these groups to teach us all about the planet and how every person can make a difference.
Let us celebrate Earth Day by taking care of our beautiful Earth every day for us now and for generations to come.
HAPPY EARTH DAY!!!
LETS TAKE CARE OF HER!!
