5 Ways to Celebrate World Environment Day
World Environment Day is celebrated on June 5th to spread global awareness among the citizens about the importance of saving mother nature. Although celebrating the environment for one day is not enough, everyone can make a promise to themselves to make the world a better place.
So, if you are looking for ways on how you can celebrate the world environment day and contribute to the larger goal, i.e., to reduce pollution, and save nature, we have listed down a few simple tips.
Are you looking for inspiring ideas to celebrate world environment day? How about organising a clean-up drive in your neighbourhood? It is a great way to keep your surroundings clean and give back to nature and your own community.
Whether you live near the beach or a garden, you can get your neighbours, friends or volunteers involved in the endeavour and do a beach clean up and remove the trash, and litter in your surrounding and beautify your neighbourhood. The more people you can get to participate, the larger area you can cover.
Another important factor to remember is the proper disposal of the collected garbage and debris.
If you always wanted to have a home garden, you can do it now. With the world environment day, you can accomplish your dream, and at the same time contribute to the environment. You can start by planting one tree at a time in your backyard. Trees not only clean the air but also keep the surrounding cool.
Did you know a single tree around a home can cut the air-conditioning need by up to 50%? Thus, your world environment day celebration endeavour can help you lower your energy consumption and bills. Doesn’t it encourage you enough to start building a garden in your home?
It will give you another interesting hobby to pursue and, in the process, you can create a beautiful corner in your home where you spend your leisure time.
Every year, the UN (United Nations) has a specific world environment day theme and the theme for 2022 is Only One Earth. In line with the theme, you can contribute to the cause by adopting the concept of the three R’s, i.e., Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
First, you can minimise buying products that come in one-time packaging like in plastic containers. Instead, you can choose to buy fresh produce from your local market. This way, you can contribute to the environment and boost the local economy.
Secondly, it is better to choose products that can be reused or recycled before you discard or replace them. Lastly, another effective way to contribute to the environment is to start recycling.
Instead of throwing the leftover food in your home, you can recycle them at home and do composting. You can use this for your home garden. Do simple online research on how you can recycle at home, and you may come across several ideas.
Do you know that your daily diet can leave behind a significant carbon footprint if they are sourced in an environmentally-friendly way? So, to tackle this issue, you can switch to a new diet or make amends to your existing one by using more plant-based products and reducing meat consumption.
Research suggests that the meat industry is one of the major contributors to greenhouse gas emission. Switching to vegan, or keto-friendly diets are some of the best ways to contribute to the environment and reduce the carbon footprint.
Another effective way to contribute is to spread awareness about the importance of world environment day. If you did something nice for the environment, you could talk about, and share pictures on social media. You can write an informative post to spread awareness about the importance of your act. This will inspire others and encourage people to take an initiative to care for nature.
You can also involve yourself with the various local community projects and share your knowledge and ideas on how to save the environment.
This World Environment Day in 2022, lets pledge to adopt environment-friendly habits and take one small step at a time to make a positive impact!
