World Earth Day 22nd April 2020
Earth is a very broad term, It has water, greenery, wildlife, pollution and other factors related to it. To save the earth means to take initiative to protect it. Neither social awareness was ever shown nor any concrete initiative was taken at the political level. Actually, Earth is a miracle, it also includes water, gases, fossil fuel and other things which is necessary for human being.
To save the earth means to take initiative to protect all of them. But for this, only one day should be made a medium, is it right? We should consider every day as Earth Day and take some measures to protect it.
When the whole world celebrates Earth Day on April 22, in America it is celebrated as Tree Day. Earlier, Earth Day was celebrated two days a year (March 21 and April 22) all over the world. But it is decided to celebrate on 22 April since 1970.

History of World Earth Day
It has been celebrated since 22 April 1970. It was started by Gaylord Nelson, a US senator. In 1969, an oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, resulted in heavy waste, which hurt him a lot and decided to do something about environmental protection.
On January 22, three million gallons of oil spilled into the sea, killing 10,000 seabirds, dolphins, seals and sea lions. After this, on April 22, 1970, about 20 million Americans participated in the first event of Earth Day on the call of Nelson.
Earth day Significance and Importance
We should think about Earth because of global warming. We get to know the impact of global warming on our environment. It is necessary to be aware of keeping the environment right to save life’s wealth. The increase in population has put an unnecessary burden on natural resources. Therefore, the importance of programs like Earth Day for the proper use of its resources has increased.
According to the Live Science IPCC, the inter-governmental panel on climate change, sea level has risen 20% since 1880, and it has continued to rise. It can increase from 2100 to 58 to 92 centimeters, which is very dangerous for the Earth.
The main reason for this is the melting of glaciers due to global warming due to which the earth may be submerged. According to the IPCC environmentalist, Maldives could be completely submerged by 2085.
The importance of “Earth Day” increases for the protection of humanity, it motivates us to make excellent use of fossil fuels. Celebrating this has a positive effect on the promotion of global warming, which motivates us to improve our standard of living.

Way to contribute to saving the earth
Every year, a huge amount of waste is generated in the world. Take the plastic itself, it takes more than 450 years to dissolve things made from it. So instead you buy things in which plastic is not used.
Plant more trees
The number of trees is decreasing day by day due to the high pollution and high quantity of trees harvested. So that breathing in the coming season will become even harder. So plant more and more trees.
Do not waste water
Shed as much water as needed. Exposing too much water is a bad idea. Always make other people aware about water conservation.
