Act Now To Save Environment

We as an individual want our houses clean and safe, But are we really concerned, collectively as human beings, about our habitat nature and environment endowed to us by nature? Unfortunately No. Actually we are slow poisoning our natural resources basically air,water,soil and plants.

AIR by polluting it. Industrialization is good for development, vehicles must to cope up With the fast life but the industrial waste and fuel carbon should be eliminated in such a way so that it does pollutes the air which contains oxygen the basic source of our life.

WATER by impuring it. Nature has provided a balanced water cycle to man, animals and plants to exist and survive . But then, we are disturbing this very cycle to harm our selves . Need of the hour is to Keep as pure as possible and avoid its misuse. Remember, earth is the only known planet to have water. Preserve and conserve it.

SOIL by degrading it or making it infertile by soil eroding, salivating and deforestration.Among them deforestation is the most concerning habit cutting trees for our personal, commercial and industrial use is essential but planting them more and more is more essential.Remember plants and trees are basis resources of our food directly or indirectly. They also give us oxygen and consume carbon dioxide breathed out by us.

The irony is that man is aware of all these facts but the lure of development leisure and comfort is stopping him to pressure, conserve and nurture the Mother Nature. We are curious to know about moon, mars and our other neighboring heavenly bodies and Spending billions and billions to conquer them but are knowingly neglecting our own planet and earth. Think, an individual‘s contribution in preserving our environment will be a step towards our goal of keeping it fit to live and live safe and healthy
