World Earth Day’s 42nd anniversary is around the corner and the whole world is bustling with the eco-friendly ideas to show their concern for the mother earth. Before the Earth day was established it was common to dump theindustrial and toxic wastes to the rivers and streams which used to result in intoxication ofwater and thus endangering life of plants and animals. Then on 22nd April, 1970 U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson showed his protest against this environmental devastation by humans and under his leadership 20 millionAmericans held demonstrations which resulted in the establishment of US Environmental Protection Agency in Dec. 1970.

Today this day is celebrated all around the world with a lot of agencies participating actively to educate people about the importance of environment to the survival of life on earth. Our environment is facing many issues like deforestation, Global warming, soil erosion, floods, and draughts which are quite detrimental to nature and in consequence to humans. So this day is celebrated just as a reminder and a warning for the need to protect our environment. Everyone on this earth has a right to a clean & healthy environment irrespective of caste and class and World Earth Day brings all the humans together for their collective benefit.

To show their love for the mother earth around 2 billion people around the world have pledged their support to the cause and this can be done through various activities. Apart from planting trees, cleaningparks and rivers, showing protests one can also go to the Earth Day Melas where eco-friendly things like bags, jewellery, clothes, pulses, organic foods, spices etc are at sale.

Celebrating World Earth Day is not limiting the concern for environmental issues to one day each year but it just acts as a catalyst for agencies to work the protection of earth. So this Earth day we should pledge to mend our ways and work in unison for the betterment of our Earth.
