Diverse pollutants, their devastating effects and gallant efforts being made to utilize renewable alternative sources of energy
Most of us, or so we'd like to believe, are wary of the fact that our planet is being neglected and climate change continues unabated. We witness ecological disasters almost on a daily basis. That is why, on this Earth Day, we call upon those individuals to participate in this global event and send out a message to others that the Earth won't wait! So let's take action, not tomorrow, but today!
The organizers of this event believe that everyone has a right to a clean and healthy environment regardless of race, ethnicity or socio-economic status. If you hold the same belief, then here is your chance to do your bit.
April 22 marks Earth Day - the day when environmental movement was born. Earth Day is now in its 42nd year and observed in 175 countries. On this day, events are held worldwide to promote awareness and appreciation of the Earth and its environment.
