Trees are the basic need without which no life on earth is possible. There are innumerable benefits of planting trees like they provide quality air and produce oxygen. Trees provide us with raw materials for food, home, and manufacturing, etc.
Clean Surroundings- Picking up trash from your surroundings and roadside areas alone will help the earth in healing. The land pollution caused by non-biodegradable substances affects the environment as well as living organisms that consume these substances. Do a favor on yourself, keep your surroundings trash-free.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle- The three Rs to sustainable living. The mantra simply describes three techniques- reduce the waste, reuse things you can and recycle non-degradable products like plastic.
Less Pollution- It is easy to say but difficult to implement. Use public transportation which will cause less air pollution. Don’t throw garbage on the roadside or in water bodies causing less land and water pollution. Don’t use speakers, reduce noise pollution.
