WORLD EARTH DAY
Earth Day 2022: A Green Future is A Prosperous Future.
Earth Day is an annual event on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First held in 1970. In 1990, Denis Hayes, the original national coordinator in 1970, took it international and organized events in 141 nations. On Earth Day 2016, the landmark Paris Agreement was signed by China, the United States and 120 other countries. This signing satisfied a key requirement for the entry into force of the historic draft climate protection treaty adopted by consensus of the 195 nations present at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris. Numerous communities engaged in Earth Day Week actions, an entire week of activities focused on the environmental issues that the world faces. On Earth Day 2020, over 100 million people around the world observed the 50th anniversary in what is being referred to as the largest online mass mobilization in history.
On Earth Day 2022, the theme 'Invest In our Planet', calling for BUSINESSES to shift towards sustainable practices. This movement is expected to change the business climate, the political climate, and how to take the action on the climate. For Earth Day 2022, we need to act (boldly), innovate (broadly), and implement (equitably). It’s going to take all of us. All in. Businesses, governments, and citizens — everyone accounted for, and everyone accountable. A partnership for the planet.
On Earth Day, MIDA team was holding a ECO-FRIENDLY PARTY to show what we can do to protect the earth. Sustainability is the point we always focus on. Use biodegradable sugarcane bagasse tableware is what everybody everyday can do, one of the simplest thing. Stop using plastic.
For Earth Day 2022, together, for everyone, everything, every day…
While companies are coming to terms with sustainable living, check out other ways to protect the environment at home, on the rooftops, or your own backyard using the concepts of "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle":
•Take a weekend morning to scour the neighborhood for discarded plastics, cans, and bottles for a personal cleanup project that will help the entire community. If you live in a coastal area, this is especially important in helping to protect ocean wildlife.
• Perform a household energy audit. Focus on electronic devices like laptops that are left on 24/7 (which accounts for 5-10% of residential energy use per year!) Turn these devices off when not in use and you can save an average $100 on your electric bill annually. Around the house, replace old bulbs with longer-lasting, more energy-efficient ones.
• Haven't take the plunge into solar energy just yet? Begin with solar-powered porch or entryway lights you can easily install yourself. For even more energy savings, look for solar-powered motion-sensor lights that are only activated when you approach an entryway.
• In the backyard, choose a good location (away from the growing area) for a compost pile. Start recycling coffee grounds, egg shells, and scraps of food to decompose and to ultimately enrich your garden for the upcoming growing season.
• Enlist the kids to help build a bird feeder for the backyard or patio -- by using a plastic bottle and filling it with bird feed. NOTE: You can also make a nature-made feed bowl out of half an orange peel. Fill it with seed and place on an outdoor table or windowsill.
