Today's Kindness #368: July 28, 2023
🍃 🌲Conserve Nature🌲🍃
Every year on July 28th, World Nature Conservation Day acknowledges that the foundation for a healthy society is a healthy environment. It's also a day to increase awareness about the importance of protecting our natural resources.
Our planet's natural resources consist of air, sunlight, soil, minerals, fuels, and water. All of these things are found in nature and used by people. Currently, there are nearly 8 billion people that populate the Earth. This number is expected to exceed 9 billion by 2037. All of these people use the earth's natural resources every day. Because these resources are getting used up so rapidly, many people are concerned they will become depleted. For this reason, many individuals and organizations stress the importance of conserving our natural resources.
The good news is, there are some simple ways to conserve our natural resources. Take water, for instance. Some scientists say our planet's water supply will be gone by 2050. One of the easiest ways to conserve water is to use less of it. Taking shorter showers, shutting off the faucet during teeth brushing, and using rainwater for irrigation are all ways to do this.
If everyone does their part, our planet's natural resources will be available for years to come.
"Like music and art, love of nature is a common language that can transcend political or social boundaries."
~ Jimmy Carter
