Why is Earth Day So Significant?
‘Earth day’ is one of the most important and celebrated civic days of the world. It is celebrated on April 22 every year with the utmost zeal and enthusiasm to raise awareness in the masses about climate change and global warming. This tradition dates back to the 1970s where on this particular date millions of Americans took to the streets to protest against environmental ignorance. The entire event was rallied by US Senator Gaylord Nelson in support of the pressing issue. This is celebrated annually ever since, and over the years, the whole world realized the importance of discussing the environment and earth conservation. This day demands our part to address our earth’s needs and take action to tackle all kinds of environmental issues; regulation to eliminate oil spills, proper toxic waste disposal, habitat conservation, protection of endangered species, and other elements.
A space free of clutter and full of freshness makes you happier and healthier! It is important to take steps to make the world a better place to live in. Climate change has turned out to be the biggest challenge to the future of mankind and the life support systems that make the world a habitable place. Earth day is all about celebrating and reminding us to preserve the uniqueness of life and our planet earth with its beautiful and innumerable bio-diversities.
Aim of Earth Day
Earth Day efforts aim at promoting various ideas to increase awareness among people. This worldwide phenomenon focuses on promoting cleaner living and creating sustainable habitats for people, flora, and wildlife alike. It serves as a conscious reminder that our beautiful planet is fragile and should be nurtured with diligence, love, and care.
Small Ideas Can Make A Difference!
Here are various ideas that can make a world of a difference.
- Proactively planting and caring for trees and our home gardens.
- Saving water by using high efficiency plumbing fixtures, using the garden sprinklers for shorter periods of time, taking shorter showers, or washing larger loads of laundry rather than frequent smaller loads.
- Protecting the environment from excessive waste by using reusable grocery bags, recycling properly, not littering, or using recyclable gift wrap.
- Reducing your carbon footprint by biking when possible, considering electric or hybrid vehicles, buying green products, buying organic produce, and supporting businesses with green initiatives.
- Reducing power consumption by taking advantage of modern technologies like LED light bulbs, switching off air conditioning when not home, and installing modern energy efficient technologies in your home like solar panels, attic insulation, or energy efficient windows.
- Donating to organizations that are working hard to protect our environment and the animals that live in it.
As many as 100 million animals are used for testing in the USA alone. At Estala Skincare, we make sure to protect the environment by never testing our products on animals and ensuring all of our products are cruelty free. Modern technologies are evolving and making it easier for Individual households to make a truly impactful difference. Not only can we help by taking action ourselves, but also by spreading ideas that create awareness like convincing people to buy green products or educating friends on climate change and teaching them actionable things they can do to protect our earth. It could be as simple as getting your family and friends or neighborhood to pledge to fight against global warming with one simple daily habit change. Businesses can help too by going green and taking fewer printouts. Tele and video conferencing tools have helped significantly reduce commute gas consumption as well.
Reducing Waste & Conserving Energy
The more waste to be disposed of, the greater the strain on energy and natural resources while causing more pollution. Thus a lot of emphasis should be placed on reducing waste and preventing the depletion of natural and energy resources. Recycling can be beneficial for environmental awareness as reusing materials results in less waste and pollution. However, using reusable containers is much better for the environment than recycling. Small daily habit changes can reap incredible benefits to our earth and make a big difference in minimal time if enough people adopt them.
Keeping the Skies Blue & the Grass Greener…
One could reduce the depletion of the ozone layer in the atmosphere by avoiding the consumption of dangerous gases. Depletion of the ozone layer can cause more UV exposure thus leading to health problems too. Healthy ecosystems clean our water, purify our air, maintain our soil, regulate the climate, recycle nutrients and provide us with food. They go a long way in protecting the immunity of living beings. Going green can and should be a team effort to create a wide culture of conservation and creating natural resource stewardship in the community.
“Earth Day” is a beautiful opportunity to pay gratitude to the generous and mesmerizing planet we all share. If we adopt good practices and changes in behavior towards the revered earth, we could make our planet a beautiful place to live in – and for generations to come.
And at Estala Skincare, we love and care for our planet!
