Earth Day: Celebrating Our Home
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: The three Rs are important components of environmental protection and are used to decrease the amount of waste produced and to make more efficient use of resources. Reduce means to use less of something, reuse means to use something multiple times, and recycle means to process used materials into new products. Conservation: Conservation is an important part of protecting the environment. It involves protecting natural resources, such as water, air, land, and plants and animals, by using them wisely and efficiently. Sustainability: Sustainability is the practice of using resources carefully so that they are available for future generations. It is about taking care of the environment and using resources in ways that do not harm it.
Earth Day is celebrated in more than 193 countries around the world. The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970, and was founded by former US Senator Gaylord Nelson. The theme for Earth Day 2023 is "Invest in our Planet"
