Earth Day-Take Action Today!

Our Earth is a wonderful place, but it needs our support to thrive! That is why, on April 22, more than a billion people worldwide commemorate Earth Day to safeguard the earth from threats like pollution and deforestation. We're making our planet a better, safer place to live by doing things like resolving waste and planting trees. It might be difficult to focus on the little activities that people and communities can do to address the climate catastrophe when we hear terminology like "code red for humanity" and "climate change." However, Earth Day aims to emphasize how everyone can contribute to the change.

Earth Day originated in the United States in 1970 as a response to air pollution caused by transportation, corporations in many sectors, and a lack of data about the effects of these emissions on the environment. The first Earth Day was a success because it resulted in regulatory action later that year, most notably the organization of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and environmental laws such as the National Environmental Education Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, and the Clean Air Act. According to the Earth Day Network, 1 billion people celebrate Earth Day in 192 countries annually. Here are some ideas for you to celebrate Earth Day in your home: 

Plan a tree: This is an excellent way to educate your children the value of trees. Trees absorb CO2 and release oxygen for humans to breathe. Planting a tree together can help restore the ecosystem's harmony while also creating a lasting memory for you and your family.

Offer your time: Volunteer to pick up garbage at a nearby park, start a collecting drive for recyclable products, or organize a screening of an ecologically oriented movie with the approval of a parent. Earth Day is also an excellent opportunity to teach your children about recycling. This is a simple assignment that may be completed at home by illustrating how things such as paper, plastic, and metal can be recycled rather than discarded.

Donate: Many companies have started their own project and donate part of the profit from selling products to celebrate themselves or send it to organizations with a hope that this can help the Earth. If you’re interested in this action, enjoy it with now. With each Afbird sold, part of the profit will be donated for Wildlife Conservation. 

Maintaining a clean, safe, and entertaining environment for all of its occupants is a full-time job that anyone can do. For an effective and sustainable future, humanity must act today. The more individuals that participate, the better off our world will be! BE A HERO FOR THE PLANET!
