On this day we have to take an oath to plant more trees in spite of cutting them. Trees are very important for us because they give us fresher air to breathe. Without oxygen, we can’t breathe and oxygen is given by trees. It also gives us food and shelter. Our school, the best school in Siddharth Vihar, also takes part every year in this activity.
Connect with an Environmental based NGO
Offer your time to the Environment by giving your time to the NGO. That type of organization works for the environment such as collecting recycled items from nearby places. It is a good activity to make friends when you meet someone who is unknown to you.
Try some new tricks to avoid using electricity all the time. And especially when there is no need please switch off your electronic items. As the electricity is produced from natural resources like wind, water, and sun. If possible use solar panels. Sometimes electricity comes from fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas.
Reduce the Wastage
Try to recycle and reuse the items. The plastics items take more than 450 years to decompose. And your pages and toilet rolls, it takes two months to diminish. So think before you throw something into the garbage. Also, limit your usage of items that are harmful to the environment.
We see water everywhere but only 1% of water is drinkable and the rest is salty water. You can save water by reducing wastage of water such as closing the tap while you are not using it. It can save 8 gallons of water every day.
