National Pollution Control

02 December 2020 –

Tree are a poem the earth writes across the sky. Humanity cuts them down fro paper so we may record our emptiness. – Kahlil Gibran

The National Pollution control day is observed on the 2nd of December in India. The objective behind the observance of this day is to become aware of the daily acts that have resulted in the surge of pollution so that we can try to reduce them. The National Pollution Control Day is also observed in the memory of the people who lost their lives in the Bhopal gas calamity in 1984.

As we all know that we have only one Earth, and most people recognize that it’s important to keep the environment safe and protected. While many may feel that the onus of controlling pollution should fall on the largest polluters, governments, and corporations, there is much that students can do to help make the environment cleaner and safer for all of us now and in the future. After all, while children contribute only 10% of the world’s pollution, they suffer about 40% of the global disease burden, a burden exacerbated by environmental pollution. Each year more than 3 million children under the age of 5 die from pollution-related environmental factors.
