World Environment Day: 14 Alarming Facts About Our Environment

On World Environment Day, we’ve decided to bring out some 14 alarming facts about our environment.

We have only one earth and let’s face the fact, we’re treating it miserably. The worst that can be done to our environment is happening right now and the people who are fighting against it, are too small to catch the grenade that’s coming our way. There are some who don’t care about it, some who don’t believe in it and the number who is actually trying to save it, is too little to even take into consideration, but their fight is going strong and that matters. More and more people are coming together to change the condition of our planet and are doing their best to make people aware of all the possible threats our planet is facing.

Every year on 5th June, the entire planet celebrates World Environment Day and do their best for the environment.

This year’s theme for the World Environment Day is “Beat Plastic Pollution”. Plastic is one big threat to our planet and even though we all know about it, we still continue to use it everyday. This way, we’re not only risking our lives but are also risking our oceans and lives in it. Plastic is our planets enemy and this is high time that we think about using it again and again.
