An appeal from the Director of Environment in view of the Earth Day 2016

     TREES FOR THE EARTH, LETíS GET PLANTING

World Earth Day is celebrated every year as an annual event by the people all across the world on 22nd of April in order to increase the awareness among people about the environment safety as well as to demonstrate the environmental protection measures. First time, the world earth day was celebrated in the year 1970 and then started celebrating annually on global basis by almost 192 countries.

Our Earth is the only planet in the Universe where life is possible till date. It is very necessary to maintain the natural assets of the earth in order to continue the life on the earth. In the rush of the crowd, the most intelligent creature of the God called human is slowly losing its humanity and forgot to take care of the planet that gave it life and started using its resources very ruthlessly. The 22nd of April has been marked as an Earth Day to make the human race get aware about the importance of their planet.

People who participate in the event celebration, make an earth planet using green and blue colors to indicate the life of animals, plants and symbolize their natural recycling including the green house effect and global warming. At some places in the United States, people celebrate earth day by taking part in a parade getting dressed up in flowers, plants or bugs clothes to make aware that whole environment is our real home. There are many ways to celebrate the earth day:

  • New trees plantation at required places.
  • Do some outdoor activities with your family such as making the home for a bird on the tree and discuss their role in the ecosystem.
  • Motivate people to reduce the use of plastic bags to avoid the soil and water pollution.
  • Teach your children about the recycling and reuse of the old materials.
  • Take part in picking up the wastes from streets, parks and other places.
  • Take part in the educational sessions like seminars, discussions and other competitive activities related to the safety of natural resources of the earth.
  • Motivate people by wearing green, brown or blue clothes for displaying the environmental colors.
  • Promote people for energy conservation by various practical means.
  • Teach people that every day of their life is earth day, so they should take care of the earth on daily basis.

On this World Earth Day, I urge all to take responsibility for environmentally sustainable development. By preventing environmental degradation through planting trees, conserving forest area, rainwater harvesting, creating conducive environment for pollinators and seed dispersers, avoid releasing polluted water in open areas etc., we will be taking the first step towards preserving the Earth for the next generation.
