Love can be different things to different people. “I love chicken, so I eat it…” and it could also be “I love chicken, so I protect it from being eaten…” Perception is stronger than reality and to each his own. Although love might be relative, when it comes to the earth, we can all agree that it is the only home we know and if we love ourselves and ultimately the earth, we have to protect it. Earth Day 2021 should come as a subtle reminder to take conscious climate actions to heal the earth.
Earth Day is an event held annually on April 22 in support of environmental protection. So far, Earth Day is the world’s largest environmental movement with a definite agenda to restore the earth and make it a healthier place for us all. With this year’s theme as “Restore Our Earth” concerned leaders like President Biden have charged us all with a call to do our little bit to save our earth. The president has invited 40 world leaders to a Leaders Summit on Climate which is set to take place on April 22nd and 23rd. This summit is scheduled to discuss environmental issues and the way forward.
From earth pollution to using non-sustainable materials which after we litter, takes the earth many many years to digest, there are so many direct and indirect harm we met on our dear mother earth.
Here’s how to protect the environment through 5 conscious efforts
#1. Stop littering the environment
We can’t overemphasize this enough. If everyone uses the trash instead of flinging that Mars chocolate bar pack right on the ground, the earth would be a much healthier place. It’s our sole responsibility to maintain a healthy environment and not just delegate it to the cleaners because “they were paid to do it anyway.”
#2. Plant more trees
Wondering how to protect the earth? Beyond Earth Day 2021, going green helps purify the environment and tackle global warming. In a time when industrialization is beginning to veer its ugly head through air, water pollution and generally altering the ecosystem, we can do our little parts through planting more trees, bringing in pollinators to your garden for a great start.
#3. Buy more organic and sustainable products
Industries like the fashion, beauty and food industries are finally beginning to catch up to speed. Presently, there are available eco-friendly alternatives you can readily purchase instead of the usual. Fashion brands like Patagonia, Eileen Fisher and Reformation are among top options to consider when buying sustainable clothing. Also consider beauty brands like Aveda, Loli Beauty, and Habit Cosmetics.
#4. Think recycling!
One of the ways you could save our earth is by cleaning up the surrounding and recycling used plastic and other recyclable materials. This would reduce a great deal of pressure on the earth.
#5. Teach the kids
They say, “If you want to go fast, go alone but if you want to go far, go with people.” Passing on environmental consciousness to the next generation is one sure way for the earth to achieve sustainability and longevity. Teach children to eat healthy, shop eco-friendly options when available, clean their environments, recycle and learn gardening. The results far transcends individual impact. Generational actions like these is how we can collectively protect the earth.
