Our planet is an amazing place, but it needs our help to thrive! That’s why each year on April 22, more than a billion people celebrate Earth Day.
Earth Day is a time to come together and support our environment’s protection from things like pollution and deforestation.
By taking part in activities like picking up litter and planting trees, we’re making our world a happier, healthier place to live.
As we celebrate Earth Day today, there is a pressing need to realize that climate change is as real as it gets, and it comes in various manifestation with havoc effects like food insecurity, rise in sea level and extreme weather conditions.
The first Earth Day was organized in Nineteen-Seventy
to promote the-ideas of environment, encourage
respect for life on earth, and highlight growing
concern over pollution of the soil, air, and water.
Earth Day is now observed in 140 nations with –outdoor performances, exhibits, street fairs that focus on environmental issues.
It would be important to add that the most common way to observe Earth Day
is by participating in activities-designed to preserve-
the environment and our natural resources.
These include collecting garbage for sorting and recycling,
avoiding the use of gasoline-powered vehicles, picking up roadside
trash, and planting trees.
Researchers estimate roughly 15 billion trees in the world are cut down each year, so help offset that loss by planting a tree of your own.
Trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen for people to breathe. They also provide shelter and food for animals such as squirrels and owls. Depending on where trees are planted, their shade can even reduce the need for air-conditioning in hotter months specially in the hottest areas of Sindh like Tharparkar, Jacobabad, Sukkur, Larkana and many more cities.
The way We did in the month of March. Our network with the help of individuals planted thousand of trees in Sindh, Pakistan to show their love to Earth and to protect it from expected disasters.
In addition, Severalmajor environmental groups have undertaken environmental activities aimed at stopping development, and the construction of new highways and nuclear power plants.
Last not Least , To Limit the WATER USAGE is also very essential. It might seem like it’s everywhere, but clean, drinkable water is a limited resource. In fact less than one percent of the water on Earth can be used by humans. (The rest is either too salty or too difficult to access.) Turning off the faucet when you brush your teeth can conserve up to eight gallons of water a day. To help save even more water, challenge yourself to take a shorter shower (but still get clean!).
