World Earth Day 2016
World Earth Day is observed every year on 22nd April, in order to increase the awareness amongst the masses about the growing problem of environmental destruction, and the need for achieving environment safety. The main aim is to motivate people to take small steps in their daily lives to make earth a better place to live.
The theme for World Earth Day 2016 is “Trees for the Earth.” Trees help in reducing climate change. Moreover, trees provide shelter to birds and wildlife, purify air, prevent soil erosion, and clean water.
In order to increase industrialization, a lot of deforestation takes place which ultimately leads to the rise in earth temperature. The problems caused by environment pollution are multi-fold in term of economy as well as health hazards.
During your daily routine, you must have noticed lot of things which make you believe that we human beings have exploited the resources to a greater extent. People cannot distinguish between the ‘need and the greed’. Severe problems like depletion of the ozone layer, river pollution due to dumping of industrial waste, global warming etc. have cropped up due to irrational use of resources.
As good citizens, it is our responsibility to plant more trees, take small steps to conserve our resources and protect our environment.
What we can do?
