Humans celebrate many types of days like mother’s day, father’s day, Labor Day, Australian day etc. Have you ever giving the same importance to Earth day? I bet you that you didn’t even know what earth day is.
Earth Day is a day that was created show awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment. Occurs each year on April 22nd. First Earth Day was in 1970. Senator Gaylord Nelson was the founder of the first Earth day.
This past Tuesday, April 22 was Earth Day, and it is likely that most people were completely unaware. So, since it seems that most people are able to forget it. Then why should we celebrate Earth Day in the first place?
Well, a reason to appreciate the environment should come with the realization that the Earth is our home. Our planet is not something we can use up and then throw away. It is keeping us alive, and we often take advantage of that.
It is not difficult to do your part in saving the environment, either, especially for just a single day. Recycle your trash, and compost extra food. Do your best to save water by turning off the tap whenever you are not immediately using it. Save energy by turning off the lights when you leave a room. These actions are some of the ways you can appreciate earth day.
Remember that we have a unique relationship with this planet and when we help it, it help us back.
