Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on the 22 of April, on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year. Earth Day is the perfect time to think outside the box. What are the consequences of our choices? What products are better for the earth? What should we avoid? Just as you might suspect, there's more to saving the earth than putting newspapers in a recycling container once a week. Our product choices, packaging, reusing, and recycling are all areas that affect our homes. Some of the things we can do will take very little time. Other choices will require research and conscious effort. For example when building or remodelling our homes, we can use earth friendly products. What is Global Warming?
Climate is the pattern of weather over the long term. The climate has always changed, getting warmer and cooler over years. Though climate change isn't new, the speed with which the climate is changing is. Global warming is a term used to describe the increase in average global temperatures due to the greenhouse effect.
What's So Bad About Global Warming?
Climate change can negatively affect the earth's delicate ecosystems. Global warming has been linked to dying coral reefs, dangerous new weather patterns and the extinction of plant and animal species. What Can You Do?
Reducing pollution helps to reduce global warming. Here are a few ideas:
Encouraging your family to recycle on a regular basis is a good way to help the Earth!
Switching to energy-efficient light bulbs in your house helps to reduce the effects of global warming.
Turn out the lights when you leave a room - unless someone's still in there.
We take the Earth for granted thinking that it will always be here but if we don’t conserve it, it will eventually run out due to all the Global Warming.
