The world is facing many problems like deadly Coronavirus, wildfire, earthquakes, deaths due to virus, asteroid, and many more, yet we smile and celebrate life each day. Today the world is celebrating “World Environment Day” with the theme “Celebrating Biodiversity”.
Observed on June 5 the World Environment Day 2020 is celebrated to encourage awareness and environment protection.
With lockdown imposed industries closed in many countries due to COVID-19, we saw some major changes in the environment like cleaner air, animals roaming freely while we were in lockdown. While countries struggling to control the pollution this lockdown helped us in tackling all the difficulties faced due to pollution with ease.
On this day Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted “On #WorldEnvironmentDay, we reiterate our pledge to preserve our planet’s rich biodiversity. Let us collectively do whatever possible to ensure the flora and fauna with whom we share the Earth thrive. May we leave an even better planet for the coming generations”.
All we can do to protect the environment during this social distancing and lockdown is stop using non-biodegradable products and go natural.
