April 22, happens to be the annual Earth Day. We are currently facing a serious climate change issue. Earth day is a reminder to all of us of the importance of the planet we are living in. It is a reminder of the effects of human acts which lead to degrade it gradually.
We can do so many things for our earth and we can turn Earth day into a full day of activities, workshops and seminars. In my opinion, this day should mainly be for our kids at schools and day cares. We should plant in them the seeds of love and respect to make our communities better.
Here are some of the things that families and kids can do in this day especially in schools:
1- Planting trees, flowers and vegetables.
2- Interactive recycling and reusing workshops. Let students learn what can be recycled or re-used.
3- Introduce alternative energy resources such as solar energy and talk about its advantages and how it can improve our lives.
4- Clean up your community.
As a conclusion, I hope that we do not forget our planet in the midst of all the chaos surrounding us. The activities mentioned above should not only be considered on this day but it should be a celebration of our clean and green communities. We are our Earth.
