By taking inspiration from the anti-war jung movement of that time, he got support from both sides of the political spectrum and on April 22, 1970, Earth Day was born.

Many people consider the day of the earth as America. It is noteworthy that many years before the efforts of Gellard Nelson, Mahatma Gandhi had warned Indian people against entry of modern techniques. Because today technology is seriously corrupting our planet.

The earth is sufficient for the needs of the people, but not for the sake of greed. Unbalanced development develops by adopting a faulty structure of development. If unbalanced development is adopted, then the entire natural resources of the Earth will be destroyed. It will be the end of life and the day of the great day.

Industrialization in today's era is a curse for all mankind. Because the main objective of industrialization is to earn money for its owners.

  By adopting this, millions of people will be unemployed. Pollution problems will arise. Large industrialists can never work for millions of unemployed people

According to one research , in one year a single acre of mature trees absorbs the same amount of carbon dioxide(Greenhouse gas) produced by driving the average consumer car 26,000 miles. 

In the idea of Earth Day, we see the dream of that world in which the world's air and water pollution are free. Society will be healthy and happy. Earth will be able to live, not soil, diseases, but gold will grow.

Only the Earth is the planet where life is possible, we are very fortunate that we live on earth, but we have the duty to keep the earth clean.
We should admit this year on Earth Day 2019 that we will try our best to keep our earth clean. Plant more and more plants.
