Everything we have today is the blessing of mother earth and to honour her, the beautiful initiative called Earth day was introduced in 1970. Gaylord Nelson, United States Senator started the Earth day as an environmental teach-in on April 22, 1970. He was later awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom award in recognition of his work. But it was focused on United states mainly. However Denis Hayes, the original national coordinator in 1970 made it go international in 1990 and organized events in 141 nations to make people aware about it.
“If we surrendered
to earth’s intelligence
we could rise up rooted, like trees.”
—Rainer Maria Rilke, Rilke’s Book of Hours: Love Poems to God
The primary objective behind this was to give away the idea of how much this world means to us and creating consciousness among everyone about the environment pollution and fighting it.The day is not only held for some ceremony and discussion about nature but also it goes with active protests against pollution, fighting against oil spills , attempt to stop loss of wilderness and so on.
Now it has grown , more than 5000 environment groups in more than 184 countries constantly keeps citizens aware about environmental issues , helps them to fight environmental issues and keeps their voice loud against global warming and carries on research on clean energy.
In this nobel day, I am very sorry to tell you that, the biggest curse on every single habitats of this world is not racism or war or crime or icurable disease, it’s environment pollutions; the pollution level is rapidly increasing day by day and the country’s environment aware people are in great tension about this.
Don’t worry I am not going to make you scared by describing what effect can these have in our life because everyone knows what pollution is causing and how it would lead this earth to a dread planet. So we are going to discuss about some easy and basic information by following and sharing which we can fight this global danger together and make the earth a beautiful place to live again.
Easy Daily life ways to fight pollution :
Plant trees as much as you can
Someone said books are your true friends , with no disrespect to his quote i would like say , ” The most real and loyal friend of you is a tree “. There are countless ways they serves us , even though we maynot know a lot of things they does for or we don’t give damm about , they always keeps on serving us. So please appreciate a tree’s effort , plant more , and cultivate them properly.
Save water !!
The other name of water is life , and it’s an eternal truth indeed.
We can see a lot of water goes wasted here and there without any regrets while that’s what should be the something to regret for throughout our life. Water is precious, every life form needs it.Please stop wasting water and wherever you see it’s happening try to stop it. Remember that there’s a theory that Third world war might happen because of the scarcity of water.
Use environment friendly things
Using old cars , refrigerators, air conditioners and other old electrical things result in a big rate of air pollution. Last year one of my friend was in Delhi during Diwali and what he told me about, how he felt when he came out of airport, made me shocked. ” It was a thick layer of white smoke and dust prevailing, which I could feel with every breath I took. It was very unhealthy and not at all comfortable for me , I was having breathing problems.” – as he said.
So everytime you buy any electronic goods be totally aware about its environment friendliness.
Don’t create noises above the pollution level
Excessive amount of horn and use of speakers , sounds of crackers introduces a huge amount of noise pollution. One incident about our author Lazypanda I want to share in this case . It was Kalipuja , and people were playing songs on a disturbing volume on their large speakers in pandals and the sounds of crackers was too high , Scooby ( our mascot and lazypanda’s brother cum pet dog ) was so scared and irritated that he couldn’t sit still he was running here and there in search of peace and tears were coming down from his eyes until she wrapped his ear with clothes and asked those people to decrease the volume. Every pet owners have experienced this situation.Not only animals , humans can get deaf for life , or get hearing disability because of noise pollution.
Keep your home clean
Not only your home but also the cleanliness of your neighborhood lies on your shoulder. So please keep the environment clean and hygienic.
The need of clean environment has grown with the time. Of all the misdeed, we regret those which did corrupt mother earth. So on this Earth day let’s take a pledge to make this world beautiful , whenever we can we will try to stop pollution and try to fight it, and our only request to everyone out there including us, please save Earth, Thank you.
