Why we should celebrate Earth Day?

Industrial Revolution played a great role in the prosperity of mankind. It provided man with basic needs like food, cloth and housing. But it took the man away from nature and natural phenomena. It made our environment polluted. Factories and industries contaminated our land, water, and space. Now, the advancement of technology is making our environment more and more polluted. The emission of hazardous rays from electronic devices is creating serious problems. The ozone layer is being destructed due to chlorofluorocarbons. Testing of nuclear missiles is also creating problems for the environment. South Korea tested a missile in Sea which affected not only the sea but the space too.

If we continued our Scientific and Industrial advancement without any checks then the Earth will not be a place to live for us. This small planet is in need of care. So we should celebrate Earth Day to remind everyone of the importance of the Earth and the environment.
