World Earth Day 2019 is around and we all are looking forward to celebrating this day in our own way. Celebrated on April 22, World Earth Day is celebrated to honour the environmental movement that started in the 1970s. If you are looking forward to celebrating this day, but you are confused about different ways in which you can make the celebration environment-friendly, here are a few eco-friendly ways to help you feel close to mother Earth.

1. Go on a cleanliness drive: You might watch garbage around you a lot of times, but you might not feel the urgency to clean it on your own. This Earth Day, do not shy away and take the initiative to clean the mess around you. You can volunteer with an organization that is willing to conduct a cleanliness drive.

2. Avoid using your personal vehicle: If you need to go somewhere nearby, where you can easily reach through walking or riding a cycle, avoid using your cars or scooters. Also, if possible, try to do a carpool and contribute towards a pollution-free environment.

3. Minimize the use of electricity: Although it’s summertime and it becomes an extreme necessity to use ACs and refrigerators, try to minimize the use of electricity for at least a few hours. You can switch of ACs and refrigerators, as they release a lot of CFCs which are harmful to the environment. Try and spend some time walking in the woods or on the beach.

4. Encourage and educate others: Education is the key to everything. Teach others around you about the importance of the environment. Encourage people to participate in eco-friendly activities, not only for a day but for every day. Ask them to throw garbage in proper dustbins and to avoid all sorts of pollution.

5. Learn to recycle and reuse: The best way to minimize the mess around you is to learn to recycle and reuse every bit of a thing that you can. You can go to nearby workshops to learn to put your old and used items to use.
