Hey friends, Sara here. Through the lockdown we have read so much about how nature has benefited as humans have stayed locked in. 13 year old Poorvi from Chennai wants us to make a resolve to not revert to our old practices, once normalcy resumes. Read on.
#SaraReads: Essay- Lets keep our planet clean and healthy
Human beings depend on the environment as it supports life in array of ways. Environment is where we are born, grow, play and live. A clean environment is very necessary to live a peaceful and healthy life.
A healthy environment depends on the good habits of humans and the circumstances we create. We should keep our environment clean and should take care of it in various ways like giving water to plants and trees everyday, panting seeds and growing plants to make our planet clean and healthy.
Plants are essential for us because they are useful in multiple ways- they give vegetables, fruits and most important, purified oxygen to breath, which is the most essential things for human beings for survival. We should keep our surrounding clean and never dirty it, which is harmful to mother earth and makes people unhealthy .
We notice each day environment is getting polluted and if there are no actions
taken by humankind, the situation for the coming generation will have impact. Industries are not trashing the wastes in the proper way that is defined by government bodies, some factories dispose the industrial wastes to the ocean or river and also emit the exhaust which consists of various mixture of poisonous gases and damages the nature and which indeed worsen the situation further.
Society is not any less either, they further add to it by not following the best practices to dispose wastes. To quote few examples, there is no segregation done for the renewable and non renewable wastes. The domestic animals consume the plastics that are thrown on the streets or near the bins which impacts their health.
Few people for commercial benefits cut trees and destroy forests to make space to expand city limits and for building structures. Few cut the trees to make toys, home interiors etc.
Environment plays an vital role for everyone because it’s the only place where
humans can live. So all humans are responsible to keep our planet clean and
healthy for the benefit of all.
