World Environment Day

July 12, 2011
Dear all, World Environment Day is celebrated on 5 June every year in more than 100 countries. World Environment Day was declared by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972. Our planet is in trouble!!!!! Almost every day we seem to hear of yet another problem affecting the environment – and what a list of problems we are creating day by day!!!! – Pollution, Acid Rain, Climate Change/ Global Warming, Waste etc.
We humans create such a lot of rubbish or waste. Most of this is taken away by dustmen and buried in enormous landfill sites or burned in incinerators – both of these actions can be dangerous for the environment. Only solution to this problem is collect all dry waste materials and recycling it for reuse. There are 5 R’s of waste management they are as follows
  1. Reduce
  2. Reuse
  3. Recycle
  4. Recover
  5. Repair
 Things to be remembered:
  • Organic matter like food substances can be uses as fertilizers for plants.
  • Waste like newspaper, magazines, and bottles can be reusable.
  • Use recycled paper to save trees.
  • Say no to plastics.
