Nowadays, we often hear that the heat has become much, the trees are being cut to make a place for cultivation, agricultural expansion, urbanization, construction of roads, infrastructure expansion and so on. As we all know that trees play an indispensable role in the carbon cycle. Do you know that a single mature tree can observe 48 lbs of carbon dioxide and can make enough clean oxygen to breathe fresh air for four people? If deforestation continued at a rapid rate then there will be a large amount of carbon dioxide and less amount of oxygen in the environment and consequence will be an ecological imbalance. According to the World Bank report, the world lost 1.3 million sq. a kilometer of forest between 1990-2016. Can you imagine your life on barren Earth? If the answer is no then we will have to plant more trees and make a better place to live. Without the trees, the existence of human being cannot be imagined rather it is not possible. We should plant saplings in our houses and surroundings and grow more trees.
Technological age but…
Today, we have made this much progress that we can create everything in this technological age but there is one thing that even scientists have failed to make and that is artificial blood. It means the person who needs blood transfusion need to depend on another person but unfortunately, blood donors are not as much as we need to meet the requirement. God has given birth to you so that you can help others. Do you know that a unit of blood can save the lives of three human beings without getting affected? By donating blood we can serve humanity and save somebody’s life. Blood donation is known as a Mahadan because it not only saves the life of others but it also strengthens the heart and protects the body against cancer. By regular blood donation, the amount of iron in the body remains balanced and keeps blood donor away from a heart attack. Blood is diluted by blood donation which is beneficial for health. To donate blood, save a life. Support in the blood donation campaign and make a contribution to saving someone’s life.
Fresh drinking water
As we all know that Earth constitutes 71% of the water out of which only 1% is fresh drinking water. Due to unethical selfish human activities, this percentage of water is diminishing day by day. Human survival and survival of other species are not possible on earth without water. In India, 14.4% of suicide cases were seen due to draught report by the National Crime Records Bureau. Scarcity of water results in poverty, suicides, migration and other social issues. As it is a scarce resource which we have to preserve for today as well as for future generation.we should create awareness and join hands together towards optimum use of water. A little effort can bring a big change.
Save trees, save a life, save water, save the environment, and save the world.
