I am presenting a speech on Earth Day. Hope that you would find it useful!
Earth Day is annually observed on 22nd April throughout the world to celebrate and honor planet earth, and its natural environment.
The Earth Day movement is primarily aimed at protecting and conserving the environment. The celebration of Earth Day that first begun in 1970 is not held in more than 190 countries. On this day, people are encouraged to appreciate the natural world and to take part in environment friendly activities such as planting a tree, or sharing a car.
Environmental issues have posed serious threats to the sustainability of natural earth. On the occasion of Earth Day, the most serious environment related issues such as pollution, global warming, climate change, acid rain, ozone layer depletion are discussed.
In schools and colleges, students and teachers take part in the movement by participating in environment related educational and awareness campaigns. Students are asked to make slogans related to the Earth Day. They also sing environmental songs. The whole aim protecting the natural earth.
We can also take part in the Earth Day movement by using less electricity, saving tap water, throwing waste items in the garbage box, not pouring polluting chemicals in the washroom drains, sharing our vehicles and using electronic vehicles.
The Earth Day celebration can bring a visible change if we all choose to make actions towards a green world.
