Plant a tree, say no to plastic and yes to bicycle.
Let me start with my forefathers. They never celebrated World Environment Day etc.They had abundant resources at their disposal, still they used all the natural resources to the minimum. They were stingy in using the free resources. They conserved , recycled and reused without any big banners and slogans.
They treated water ,soil ,air, trees, animals, and all other natural resources as God. They never abused the natural resources for their benefits. They never exploited. Whenever they cut the trees , they made sure that they cut the old trees or branches.
Everyday was world environment day for them.
The world once which was all green has turned out to be a big concrete jungle, all the freshwater resources have turned out to be lakes of industrial wastes, sewage tanks, and in recent years water bodies have become dumping yards of plastics and other wastes. Increased use of vehicles,development of industries, thermal power stations and unplanned deforestation has increased the air pollution.
Every year about 13.7 billions hectares of forest is destroyed for one or the other reasons. If this is continued , in a couple of decades our planet will have no forest, all deserts.As of now total world forest cover has drastically come down to about 30% of the total area. Indian forest cover is just about 20%. Due to all these things it has become inevitable to protect all forests, water resources, air and other natural resources.
To bring awareness to protect ourselves from imminent destruction of all flora and fauna due to droughts, floods, widespread diseases, the United Nation has started celebrating World Environment day on 5th June every year since 1947. Every year they have a theme on which world wide awareness programs are held.
For our and future generations survival “WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY” is celebrated.
