Earth day

Each year we celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd. This day is to show how much we care for our planet Earth and the lives that survive on this planet. To raise awareness on how to protect the atmosphere of our beautiful planet.

People from around the world share ideas for saving the environment by using more healthy choices. Such as:

  • Planting trees which make our Earth greener and gives fresh air to breathe.
  • Having more trees help with more food and help the animals take shelter.
  • Use of trash cans to keep the community clean.
  • Use of Recycling bins.
  • No burning the firecrackers on some special holidays to avoid the noise and air pollution.
  • Keep the ocean clean by not throwing trash in the water.
  • Use healthy transportation system or walk.
  • Use of solar light panels to generate the electricity.
  • Save water by turning off the faucet as soon as we are done and not let the water run.
  • Most important one is the 3 R’s (Recycle, Reduce, Reuse)
