The environment is imperative for human survival and without it, we can’t possibly last a day! Celebrating the source that provides us with essential resources, World Environment Day is celebrated worldwide on the 5th of June every year. It is an international day that encourages awareness and protection of our environment. Humans have exploited the Earth for several years and this exploitation has resulted in a devastating effect on the ecosystem. Celebrating this day gives us an opportunity to broaden the basis for an enlightened opinion and moves us towards responsible conduct in preserving, protecting, and enhancing the environment.
Why do we need to preserve the environment?
We need to care for the environment not just for our needs but for our survival too. The environment provides us with life-sustaining resources, but human exploitation is resulting in environmental destruction. We need to preserve the environment to reduce this destruction, restore ecosystems, maintain ecological balance and save resources for future generations as well.
The theme for the World Environment Day 2021 is Ecosystem Restoration. It also commences the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration. It refers to restoring or aiding the recovery of ecosystems that have been damaged and requires protecting and preserving existing ecosystems.
How can you help?
Restoration can be done through actively planting trees or reducing pressures on the environment. Making a conscious effort to use environmentally friendly products can help you do that. If you were asked to regularly spend a certain amount from your pocket on ruining the planet and causing its destruction, how would you react? You would certainly be devastated. It is your choices that can contribute to a major change in conserving and preserving the environment. Going green can take you closer to a greener tomorrow.
Can jewellery make a difference??
Absolutely! The jewellery you purchase contributes to a better or worse future for the environment. Jewellery mining can result in soil erosion and ecosystem destruction while artificial jewellery ends up in landfills and releases harmful methane gases. Making a sustainable choice when it comes to jewellery is the wisest thing to do!
