This Friday, instead of finding your way to the club or running home early from office, it is the the day to celebrate Earth Day which falls on April 22nd every year. The event that began way back in 1970, now has more than 1 billion people from more than 193 countries observing this day, making it the largest civic observance in the world!
This Day which initially began as an event, now has commemorated as an annual celebration co-ordinated globally by the Earth Day Network. And this year, the landmark, Paris Agreement is scheduled to be signed by the United States, China and more 120 countries. This signing satisfies a key requirement for the entry into force of the historic draft climate protection treaty adopted by consensus of the 195 nations present at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Paris.
Do you not want to do your bit in contributing to the globally recognised Earth Day?
Do not restrict the celebration to putting the lights out in your household for an hour in a day. Instead,
We have a list of things that you could do to contribute to celebrating Earth Day, once, twice or more in the 365 days. And, we will tell you how!
While everyone is concerned with the summers becoming hotter and winters becoming cooler in different parts of the world, little realising is that we are the ones responsible for it, too. And therefore, it has now become necessary to promote planting trees and protesting against deforestation on a remarkable scale. Most of the countries are also encouraging gardening as a vocational pattern, in order to balance out the ecological system. While, planting trees might require the support of a tree plantation drive, we can develop a garden right in our backyards and balconies with the right kind of knowledge and organic solutions for garden problems.
2. Switch Off!
Most of us fail to understand that we are responsible, for the “often” power failures and the electricity shortage. It is necessary to ensure that there is no wastage of electricity which can be done by- Switching off the unwanted appliances and using less power consumption utilities instead of doing it only for one hour in 365 days.
Also, while we switch off the electricity to observe the “Earth Hour”, it is equally essential to switch off the inverter in a way that there is absolutely “nil” power consumption from your household and instead make use of natural candles, which include vegetable wax rather than the scented and other extravagant variations that are not even eco-friendly.
3. Organic Products for a Natural World!
As the consumption of artificial products are increasing day by day, it is leading to a wastage of our essential and other energy sources. For instance, we might make use of a washing machine to save water but it is also necessary that we also employ eco-friendly laundry products that contain natural ingredients such as sodium bicarbonate and rock salt that work in a supplementary manner.
4. Nature for a company?
Well, most of us in our busy routines have forgotten the importance of nature around us. We hardly take a look at the surroundings while walking on the streets or while taking our dog out for a stroll in the garden. Have you ever taken a solo trip to be in the company of the nature? It’s a beautiful feeling because the greens respond to each and every conversation in some way or the other. So every day, make it a point to get up and say hello! to your garden and give them some water. It could be great if you could go backpacking amongst the naturals, once in a while!
Whether you hand wash dishes or use a dishwasher, the soap, detergent or rinse you use to get them clean will go straight down the drain and into our waterways and environment. Cleaning your dishes with products free of hazardous chlorine bleach, ammonia, and phosphates is a must for your health and for the planet. The organic dishwash powder contains natural ingredients such as organicsoapberries, neem leaves and lemongrass essential oil. It is highly recommended for cleaning baby’s feeding bootles and cutlery.
