Earth Day is observed every year on April 22 to create awareness about protecting and saving the planet. To celebrate this day, celebrities share what can be done to help preserve mother earth and also how they do their bit.
Taking care of the planet earth is more than a responsibility for us. I feel that to save our home, one can bring a change by slowly inculcating environmental-friendly habits. From something as small as planting a tree to something like ditching your car and instead walking to your destination can bring about a big difference. As for me, I never leave the lights and fans switched on if I am not using a room. I have stopped using plastic too. I reuse old plastic containers that I had but don’t buy any new ones. In fact, even when I go grocery shopping, I carry my cloth or jute bag and ask my friends and family to do the same.
I think all of us should be environmentally conscious and do our bit in saving our beautiful planet earth. We should focus on small things like not leaving the tap running when not in use, and save water. Secondly, stop using disposable bags, glasses etc. I recently saw a post on Instagram where a girl’s father had carried a steel tiffin box to the restaurant and after they were done eating, instead of getting the remaining food in the restaurant-provided containers, he kept it in his tiffin. The girl was so proud of her father and I think we should all learn from him. These small things can help make a huge difference. On my part, I do everything I can to save the environment. I am a plant lover and have many plants at my home. I avoid using plastic straws, bottles and instead carry my own steel straws and bottles with me.
World Earth day is about supporting and creating awareness about protecting the earth and preventing global warming and lessening its impact on us. Yes, I do keep potted plants, I also plant trees, separate dry and wet waste, switch off fans and lights when not in use. I explain to people who are semi-literate or illiterate about the effects of global warming. I keep the usage of AC to the minimum. I also read up some stuff that makes me an active participant in making the earth a better place. Definitely, I am somebody who is very interested in finding alternative ways to help the earth heal. It’s the need of the hour as climate change and global warming are happening and it is not going to impact us but our future generations as well. Soil is getting eroded, desertification is a true thing happening.
