The day is named International Mother Earth Day because Mother Earth, as it says in the resolution, is “a common expression for planet earth in a number of countries and regions, which reflects the interdependence that exists among human beings, other living species and the planet we all inhabit.”
HOW TO OBSERVE
- Safely patrol the roadsides and ditches to remove litter.
- Pick a watershed or beach and clean up trash before it gets swept away.
- Pledge to go the entire day without using plastic.
I live in a beautiful area in Belgium; but, like all places on the earth, there are some places and people that let it down. I think if you ask someone that smokes if they believe they break the law, they would say "NO." However, as soon as they drop their butt on the floor, that isn't so. None of us is perfect, so you will not receive a lecture from me, just please BIN IT !
What bugs you about litter? Empty cans, cigarette butts, plastic bags...?
Let us make Mother Earth a cleaner place!
