World Earth Day 2021

| |


Every year Earth Day is observed on 22nd April to create awareness about the protection of environment. First was held on April 22, 1970. This year theme is 'Restore Our Earth'.

As human population has increased, the damage to the environment has increased manifold. Over the past 100 years, the temperature of the Earth has increased by 1° Celsius. And this one degree has brought a lot of storms, heat waves, floods and droughts. As a result of which all of the living beings, including plants and animals, have suffered. Many animals are on the brink of extinction because of the loss of habitat and poaching. Plastic in the form of micro crystals has reached the Arctic. We have reached a point where if we don't take action, the damage will become irreversible.

 

Google has put up a really nice doodle, highlighting how everyone can plant the seed to a brighter future—one sapling at a time.

 


Also there is an inspirational story of an Indonesian man, who alone planted 11,000 banyan trees over a period of 24 years on barren 617 acres. This helped retain water underground and lead to the revitalization of water sources, prevent soil erosion and increased crop production.
