World Cleanup Day: small actions for people, a big step for the planet. World Cleanup Day is held on September 18. Each year people gather to stand up against and tackle the global problem of solid waste, including the problem of marine debris. Moreover, to raise awareness for a cleaner world, the government took the initiative to plant trees in the courtyard of the municipality of Beau-Bassin / Rose-Hill.
Protecting our planet starts with us
How can we protect our planet:
- Reduce, reuse, and recycle as much as possible. Reduce the amount of waste you produce. Preserve natural resources and waste areas by following the three “R’s.”
- Educate. You may help others understand the importance and value of our natural resources by enhancing your own education.
- Plant a tree in your yard. Food and oxygen are provided by trees. They help in saving energy, air purification, and tackling climate change.
- Shop wisely. Buy less plastic and bring a reusable shopping bag.
- Volunteer. Volunteer for cleanups in your community.
Almost every human on this planet has a place they call a Home. It may be a mansion, a street, a village, or a flat. Then there is the planet we call home. World Cleanup Day is much more than the simple act of picking up trash. It is our duty to make our planet more healthy and cleaner.
