The shiny blue planet, our home, our Earth supports millions of species of plant and animal life. We humans are a part of the delicate ecosystem woven so carefully by the nature. For ages humans have co-existed in harmony with nature, living with plants and animals and using Earth’s resources as per their needs.
But this changes drastically over the last few decades
Increased CO2 levels, increased water and air pollution, changed climatic cycles and rampant cutting of forests has led to extinction of many flora and fauna species.
5th June, the World Environment Day aims to spread awareness and calls for action from all the individuals globally, to protect and restore the environment so that our planet Earth thrives and so does every life form that exists on it.
Time to Act responsibly, Time to restore environment
It has been analysed that by making due policy changes and making sure to get them implemented can reverse some damage.
Initiatives to innovate and use clean and green solutions, keeping systems in place to check the GreenHouse Gas emissions, controlling the deforestation, all these need to be in place in order to control and reverse the greenhouse effect.
In the past few years, many hectares of loans has been reforested by planting trees, by governments and organisations. In India, Dera Sacha Sauda is a prominent name that has planted millions of trees and changed the landscapes.
Tree plantation needs to be continued to create and maintain ecological balance.
Non-vegetarian food emits methane and CO2. The United Nation therefore recommends switching to plant based diet.
To sum it up:
At individual levels, we all can save water by using it judiciously and going for water recycling and reuse.
Individuals and corporations must opt for solar power, wherever possible. Saving electricity and creating electricity from renewable sources would help drastically as well.
Avoiding soil, water and air pollution can be done by each individual.
Maximizing tree plantation would be being drastic changes
At Dera Sacha Sauda, multiple initiatives have been launched and have been making drastic improvements since last 2 decades.
✔️More than 43 million trees planted and every year lakhs of new yes are planted. This has led to improved biodiversity and ecosystem’s balance.

All thanks to Saint Dr Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan, many areas have become flourishing green lands, people have become more aware and many birds and animals species have flourished.
We too can learn from them and join hands with them for saving our Earth, protecting our environment and saving mankind.
