Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 every year. However, 2020 seems to be a little different.
The world-wide lockdown owing to the novel Coronavirus has given mother nature a chance to bloom again. Be it cleaner rivers, better air quality or liberating wildlife — the lockdown across the world seems to have had a positive impact on the environment. But think about this: it took a PANDEMIC and absence of MANKIND for the environment to BREATHE again!
Seems alarming, right?
We can sure do a lot in making the world a better and greener place to live in, but we suggest starting from the comfort of your four walls.
Be a Plant Parent- Plants improve air quality. It’s a great way to pick up a new skill and be eco-friendly at the same time.
Compost your kitchen waste- Don’t waste your kitchen scraps and leftover food — turn them into compost instead!
And by doing this over time, you save a lot on energy and water bills! (Win-win situation, isn’t it?).
This Earth Day, let’s pledge to stop taking the planet for granted.
We would love to know the eco-friendly steps you have been taking. Join us for the Earth Day celebration and let us know in the comments section below.
Stay home, stay safe!
Harshita looks for stories in almost everything. A hopeless dreamer and a movie buff, she is known for laughing at her own jokes and being proud of it. She has a thing for sarcasm, wit and everything savage. A supporter of the underprivileged, she will totally judge you for being rude to the waiter in a restaurant. Loves conspiracy theories and myths and prefers dogs over humans. She is an impulsive writer and hopes to write a book someday.
