Today is Earth Day and I am bringing you a very special blog to draw your attention to this important day. I will share some facts, that are educational as well as informative.
But, not just that, I also have a poem to share; written by The Candy. This is my first official collaboration and I’m super excited to share her poem with you guys.
Let’s start with something interesting first:
Canada’s Hudson Bay has less gravity as compared to the rest of the world. You won’t float there but you will weigh less there, so if you want to see less weight on the scale without a workout and diet, visit that place.
If we talk about specific places then rainforests are another significant place on the Earth. Rainforest is home to more than 2 million species of animals and 170,000 of the world’s 250,000 plants species.
But, most of those species are on the verge of getting extinct and not only that, but harm to rainforests is causing harm to the environment as well.
Global pollution is a serious problem, with around 5 million deaths every year due to it.
Pollution is not only limited to the land and air but also to the oceans.
This means there are still many species that are yet to be discovered, but we may never know about them as oceans are getting polluted as well and it’s affecting aquatic life.
It has been found that by 2050, ocean plastic will outweigh all of the ocean’s fish.
It’s okay to be disturbed by these facts, that means you are bothered with this and want a change. You can bring a change by “Investing in your planet”. Like switching off the electricity when not using it, not wasting water, sharing a ride or using public transport. Avoid using plastic and also avoid littering on the road. Stop burning trash and be more aware and respectful of the environment.
“Invest in our planet” is the theme of this year’s Earth Day, you can be a part of it too by respecting the environment and caring about the planet.
So, these were the facts that I wanted to share with you. My main intention is to make people aware of the importance of this day. But, don’t wait for Earth Day to bring the change instead, start today to protect the tomorrow.
Hey wait, this is not the end of the blog. I talked about the poem by The candy and don’t go anywhere without reading it.
A planet so round and clear
Like a ball of shining marble
Looks like a blue star from space
That glows and sparkles
It holds beautiful mysteries within
Wanting to be discovered
Like a blank canvas
Which is yet to be coloured
The beauty of nature here
Is as pure as a young maiden
From rich valleys to deep forests
With greenery laden
The flowing rivers and
The deep oceans
Are all beautiful shades of blue
Mixed together with different emotions
The different mountains
New or old, high or low
Standing so boldly
Covered with snow
But will these miracles of nature
Be able to survive?
Not choking to death
Till the end of time?
The flowing rivers
And their beautiful shades of blue
Are all turned into black
And dark coloured hues
The greenery is vanishing
As the forests being cut down
And its cries could be heard
In the form of thunderstorms
The mountains becoming weak
The glaciers are melting down
Our Earth is warning us
For the danger that's around
But... it's never too late
For our Earth is like a mother
Who would forgive us?
Even after we made her suffer
So let's promise
To not let her down
For she is a rare diamond
Of the galaxy's crown...
