On April 22nd, we celebrate Earth Day. Here we will be celebrating Earth Day by collecting Earth quotes.
It’s not every day that we celebrate something as old as the planet itself. What better way to celebrate Earth than with historical figures like Mother Teressa, Gandhi, and Einstein.
In this article, we will share Earth Day quotes that’ll inspire you to save your environment!
How can Quarantine Help The Environment?
Quarantine changed a lot of people and turned out to be a rather unique experience. Remaining inside makes us feel like we’re losing our connection with the outside world. NASA’s satellites detected a significant decrease in Nitrogen Oxide (NO2) over China after the COVID-19 outbreak.
There are many ways in which quarantine helped the environment such as:
- Road transportation hubs and airports around the world remained closed for several weeks. This led to reduced carbon dioxide emissions.
- Due to the lockdown, fewer people left home and there was much less noise pollution.
- The wildlife remained calm and undisturbed for most of the quarantine.
How can We Celebrate Earth Day at home?
We saw a sudden drop in pollution in a major country. The same things happened all around the world. It’s good news but not exactly permanent. The environmental impacts of quarantine are temporary unless we take solid, long-term measures.
A great way to celebrate Earth day this year is to start something that helps the environment. You don’t need to go out in the street to have your voice listened to.
You can record your protest against environmental pollution online. It’s a matter of supporting environment-friendly brands like Bare Closet. Learning more about sustainable living can be a great way too. Start a new chapter and inspire others to do the same!
How Can We Save Our Environment at Home?
During quarantine, there was a drastic decrease in pollution. In a way, we can say that by living at home, we helped the environment. If you take a closer look, you’ll see that a lot of small factors made that possible.
Here are a few simple ways to save our environment from home:
- Plant a tree! It’s a simple, yet permanent way to leave a positive impact on the world even when you’re not around.
- Each one of us produces tons of waste. You can start to:
- Recycle household waste including paper, glass containers, metal containers, etc.
- Compost food materials like spoiled fruits, and vegetables, dry cat/dog food, etc.
How can Quarantine be Sustainable?
Quarantine is a great time to start a lifestyle that benefits us and our surroundings.
It’s a great time to support the community by getting everyday products from the farmer’s market. This way, you also reduce your carbon footprint. You can learn to recycle and use recycled products.
Did you know?
Meals in the United States travel an average of 1,500 miles from the farm to our plates. (World Watch).
Most people know the hazard of plastic bags and fossil fuels on the Earth’s atmosphere. The question is, do you know the environmental cost of fast fashion?
The fast fashion industry is responsible for 20% of global water waste and 10% of carbon emissions. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
Shopping from a sustainable fashion brand is another way to make quarantine sustainable. Our guide on how to reduce your fashion footprint is a great place to start your journey!
What can One Person Do to Help The Environment?
In the last few decades, people are focusing more and more on making sensible choices. They understand concepts like global warming and climate change. And are willing to do something about it!
One should never underestimate the power of an individual. Together these individuals make up society. It’s in our mutual interest to make mother Earth a safe place for future generations.
Here’s what one person, YOU can do to help the environment:
- Create your masterpiece, a garden! It’s a simple way to help the environment and yourself.
- Start using your bicycle instead of a car or motorbike.
- Get reusable bags and beverage containers.
- Say no to polyester! It’s leading to water pollution. You can switch to cotton as a natural substitute.
- Unsubscribe to catalogs and use a cotton napkin instead of tissues. Millions of trees are cut down every year to produce junk mail. It’s the leading cause of deforestation, a major environmental issue.
