Uttarakhand Heritage Media wishes you all a very Happy Earth Day 2020..This is an annual event celebrated around the world on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, it now includes events coordinated globally by the Earth Day.
The enormous challenges — but also the vast opportunities — of acting on climate change have distinguished the issue as the most pressing topic for the 50th anniversary. Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world habitable.
Lets’s contribute to our Mother Earth by adopting the following points .
1.Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Cut down on what you throw away. Follow the three “R’s” to conserve natural resources and landfill space.
2.Volunteer. Volunteer for cleanups in your community. You can get involved in protecting your watershed, too.
3.Educate. When you further your own education, you can help others understand the importance and value of our natural resources.
4.Conserve water. The less water you use, the less of it runs off.
Shop wisely. Buy less plastic and bring a reusable shopping bag.
6.Use long-lasting light bulbs. Energy efficient light bulbs reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Also flip the light switch off when you leave the room!
7.Plant a tree. Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change.
8.Don’t send chemicals into our waterways. Choose non-toxic chemicals in the home and office.
