Being a member of Volunteers of Pakistan (VOP) we must be socially responsible for clean & green environment. It’s in us to share. Although we are not in green uniform but we are Rescuers without green uniform”.

A planetary ecological emergency declared backed in 2009. Due to multiple nuclear meltdowns in Russia, Russian states and now in Japan, unaddressed abrupt climate change escalates; it is eminently evident that Earth’s Ecosystems are crashing.

Earth day, reiterates call for an immediate and escalating people’s power Earth Revolution on behalf of Earth, all her life, and the human family. And for the entire human family to find a way – each and every – to get out and plant organic Earth victory gardens, and protects and restores ecosystems.

History of Earth Day

The idea came to the Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson, a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin at the time, after witnessing the ravages of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. In-spired by the student anti-war movement, he realized that by infusing that energy with an emerg-ing public consciousness about air and water pollution, it would force environmental protection onto the national political agenda.

Senator Nelson announced the idea for a “national teach-in on the environment” to the national media; persuaded Pete McCloskey, a conservation-minded Re-publican Congressman, to serve as his co-chair; and recruited Denis Hayes as national coordina-tor. Hayes built a national staff of 85 to promote events across the land.

As a result, on April 22nd, 20 million Americans took to the streets, parks, and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment in massive coast-to-coast rallies. Thousands of colleges and universities organized protests against the deterioration of the environment. Groups that had been fighting against oil spills, polluting factories and power plants, raw sew-age, toxic dumps, pesticides, freeways, the loss of wilderness, and the extinction of wildlife sud-denly realized they shared common values.

Earth Day 1970 achieved a rare political alignment, enlisting support from Republicans and Democrats, rich and poor, city slickers and farmers, tycoons and labor leaders. The first Earth Day led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. “It was a gamble,” Gay-lord recalled, “but it worked.”

 

We have to care the Earth because Earth is our big house
Plant many trees and care them…
Recycle things…
Smoke & dust damage the air..
Don´t throw trash…
Water is getting dirty…
We can walk instead of using the car…

what thing can we do to save the Earth?…

Every breath of life is a memory..

With great start, it ends with leaving message that for global change : Local efforts are required.
