Trees Give Us Life: Save them!

In this world only one creature helps us for free,

And that selfless service is that of the tree.

It stands still and provides us aid,

In escaping the heat under its shade.

 

It cleans the air and improves filtration,

And helps us breathe in these days of pollution.

It provides people with the firewood,

Showing the signs of the silent sainthood.

 

It provides home to many on its bough,

And provides fodder to animals like the cow.

Under the trees you can take time to rest,

While the birds are busy to make their nest.

 

It does not discriminate between men and women,

By providing to all the life giving gas called oxygen.

In spite of receiving so much from the trees

We cut them insensibly at very high degrees

Drawings During Accountancy Classes: Part II

Rivers, lakes, seas and wells,

In this place many creatures dwell.

Trees are cut one by one,

But people on earth are planting none.

We are destroying it no one other.

Save our earth to live further.

After all, we only have one planet,

We are turning it into a gadget.

If we ruin all its dome,

Our children will not have a home.

If we all work together for time some

Our planet can remain habitable for centuries to come.

It’s not him, who is destroying,

He is my friend who had his drawing.

He and me have been pleading

Please, Stop the Earth from bleeding!

Let the future live: Life is environment, Save it

Let the future live: Life is environment, Save it

Why Is Important to Protect the Environment?

We have to preserve the environment because it’s what we live in and changes to it can be bad for us. Our future generations will use this environment and we should not create scarcity for them.

We have not inherited this earth from our forefathers; we have borrowed it from our children

We do not want to see reduction in biodiversity, face global warming, scarcity of water, holes in ozone, polluted air and water. We should live and let live.

How can we protect the environment?

I won’t discuss about switching off the electrical devices, unplugging them, using electricity wisely, repairing leaking taps, using taps wisely, switching to LED’s and CFL’s, etc.

Here is a list of those viable methods which we can follow. It will not only help the environment’s riches but also save your wealth.

Walk – Instead of using vehicles for short distances, use your legs. It will not only conserve petroleum but also give you physical exercise and keep you fit.

Reduce, Re-use and Recycle – Reduce the consumption, Re-use wherever possible and recycle if not re-usable. Avoid using disposable items and never throw away. Anything you use only a few times and throw away consumes resources. Carry your own reusable cup or water bottle, eating utensils, and cloth shopping bags with you.

Don’t waste food – Don’t take more food than you need. Ask your belly how much it wants to eat. If you are left with extra-food, share it with friends or with your pets.

Charity – Donate your usable clothes and household items to charity. You have tons of clothes or things you want to get rid of. If they are still usable, give them to someone who needs them. You may also choose to give them to associations. These associations may sell them and collect a little money.

Plant a tree – They absorb carbon dioxide. If you can’t plant one, try potted plants. They might be fruitful or shady as you like.

Compost – Choose an area in your yard to put your waste, fruit peels, and uneaten food. Find some worms that can break the waste down and produce a very rich soil that works great with your landscaping. Keep your compost heap as far from water source as possible.

Rainwater Harvesting – Why let the rainwater peep off from the streets. Install rainwater harvesting in your house. If you cannot install that, at least use a few buckets and tubs to store water.
