Earth Day - Will You Celebrate?
The Earth is precious to us all. We live, love and share it’s lands together. However, it isn’t all that often that people come together and create a day which pays homage to the land we all know and love. It’s called Earth Day, and it’s coming to us very soon. We’re going to be looking at Earth Day in more detail, to try and make people aware of the event and its importance.
What Is Earth Day?
Earth Day is an event which took place last year on the 22nd of April, and is expected to take place again at the same sort of time this year. The purpose of Earth Day is to try and make people aware of the need to have a healthy and safe environment.
In the last 100 years, we’ve subjected our planet to a lot of punishment. Harmful gases and chemicals have been created and released into the atmosphere, and people have laid waste to the resources which occur naturally; things like forests and fossil fuels have been relentlessly pumped out of the ground.
The idea behind Earth Day was therefore quite sensible. Not only did people make a conscious effort to be more environmentally responsible, but those who were aware of the problems would try to pass that information on. The aim is to educate people; to make them aware that if we do not change soon, we could see the destruction of the environment as we know it.
So, Will You Celebrate?
To celebrate Earth Day is perhaps a bit of a strange perception. If you want to be a part of Earth Day, then you should make an effort to be more environmentally conscious and to try and spread the word about the importance of recycling and reducing usage of fossil fuels.
Overall, with Earth Day coming up, there’s no better time to be environmentally conscious. Really think about what you’re doing with your rubbish, how you’re using the resources we have, and what you can do to help protect the planet. There’s only one Earth, and one chance, so we have to make sure that we take every possible step to keep it in good condition, if not for ourselves but for generations to come. If you can make a difference, then please try and do. Whether it's just extra focused on recycling, or spreading the word about the environment, we can all do something.
