SAFE ENVIRONMENT IS A NEED TODAY
~ Harshdeep Singh
A clean and safe environment is necessary for a healthy living. If we will not take care of our environment, it will become more polluted that will surely have a harmful impact on our health. This corona virus pandemic somehow resulted in positive consequences for our environment. But still, there is a lot more change required. Our environment is destructing at a high pace and on the same note, we have to make our planet healthy for the future generation. Global warming is one of the main factors that are affecting our planet. Many animals or we can say mainly the wildlife is getting extinct because of us. We have many solutions to improve or heal our environment but still we don’t have awareness about those solutions and people are often of the opinion that change can’t be observed by efforts of some only. But as we know something is better than nothing, so in regard to this, we can heal the environment by reducing the usage of plastic, by consuming less electricity or using solar panels in the daytime and more importantly by planting more and more trees. Doing such things not only save the environment but also improve the quality of life for all living beings. Harming the environment and causing pollution have caused global warming. Due to pollution and deforestation, the health of many people is getting worse. Concluding the above, our environment is a precious gift to all the living beings and it is facing a big danger and it is in a need of people like you and me to make efforts.
HOW WE CAN SAVE OUR ENVIRONMENT
We can save our environment by reducing over usage of water, by collecting rainwater and recycling it. By electricity conservation like unplugging electronic appliances when they are not in use. Do not use polythene while shopping of fruit and vegetables. Keep your garden chemical free. The plants, air, water, animals and other living things exist in the environment so we have to take proper care of all of them.
