Earth Day is an annual event celebrated globally on April 22. Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. The Earth Day gives every inhabitant in all the populated corners of the world the opportunity to express gratitude to planet Earth.
Here are five some steps on how one can protect the habitat:
1. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
Whatever you use on a daily basis, reduce the use of it. In simple terms we can say, let’s use things wisely. Another notable thing is to practice reuse. Try not to throw away the things once used, if you can reuse it, do that. Recycling is another important thing. For eg, if your phone is not working anymore, do not just throw it away to the streets, meanwhile, you can recycle it. There are plenty of E-shops that recycle the E-waste.
2. Volunteer and be a part of the Protection Army
Volunteer for cleanups in your community. There are a handful of communities that does the cleaning. You can either be a part of such communities or you can just get involved in cleaning and protecting your own house and nearby areas.
3. Educate yourself and each other!
When you further your own education, you can help others understand the importance and value of our natural resources. Teach your neighbourhood about how important it is to protect our planet. Meanwhile, teach yourself about how you can improve your environment by being cautious.
4. Save Water!
The less water you use, the less runoff and wastewater that eventually end up in the ocean. People still don’t understand the importance of saving water, and it’s our duty to make people understand it. We shall start that by teaching our kids, let them know what will happen to the world if we run out of water.
5. Plant a tree.
Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change. Trees give off oxygen that we need to breathe. Trees reduce the amount of stormwater runoff, which reduces erosion and pollution in our waterways and may reduce the effects of flooding. Many species of wildlife depend on trees for habitat.
