World Mother Earth Day 2018
With the purpose of remembering that the planet and its ecosystems provide us with life and sustenance, on April 22, the International Mother Earth Day is celebrated all over the world. This movement that was born in the spring of 1970 is still more necessary today than ever.
This worldwide celebration offers us the opportunity to raise awareness and promote, once again, all the inhabitants of the planet about the problems that affect Earth and the different forms of life that cohabit in it.
“The World Day of Mother Earth aims to activate the environmental movement around the world.
It should be remembered that the fundamental mission of World Earth Day is to activate the environmental movement around the world. This year, it is especially focused on ending plastic pollution. The damages that this fact produces in our world go through the poisoning and damages in the marine life until the alteration of the human hormones and, in addition to dirtying our beaches and landscapes, they also block the waste streams and landfills. This exponential growth of plastic pollution seriously threatens the survival of the planet.
In response, this year World Earth Day wants to provoke a change of attitude in relation to our behavior with plastics and invites us to take measures to raise awareness and turn around the bad forecasts of our future on Earth.
“What can we do individually?
Learning and acting is within our reach. We detail some of the keys that the Earth Day Network proposes to us to improve our “plastic habits”. Would you join any of them?
- Do you know that there is a calculator to know our plastic consumption? With this tool, we can create our own personal plastic reduction plan and measure our progress at any time.
- It also helps to share stories and photos about what you are doing individually to reduce plastic pollution, and not just on Earth Day, but throughout the year.
- Tag your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts with these hashtags: #Earth Day of the Earth2018 #EarthDay2018 #EndPlasticPollution #lessplastic #plasticless
“Another objective is to achieve the fairest possible balance between economic, social and environmental needs of present and future generations.
With this celebration, we are assuming our global responsibility to promote the harmony of nature and Mother Earth and achieving the fairest possible balance between economic, social and environmental needs of present and future generations, as we were reminded in the Rio Declaration in 1992.
