We have been gifted with wealth from the beginning of time. However, due to inconsiderate activity by people we have reduced beautiful earth to a deforested, polluted mess.

All of us play a role in this. It is necessary to protect the environment and take steps to save it. June 5 is Environment Day.

We must make saving the environment a part of our daily lives. We can begin by saying ‘No’ to plastic.
