It is no secret that Earth’s environment is quickly changing – and not for the better. Poor waste management, pollution, and climate change are drastically altering the world as we know it. Some consider the world to be overpopulated and that contributes to an increase in garbage and deforestation, as a result of the need for more space and more raw materials. So many gorgeous animals are endangered or extinct because of these changes. Earth Day reminds us that we need to love and protect our planet. Small changes like composting, walking to nearby destinations instead of driving, turning off lights and unplugging appliances when not in use, and buying locally can make a huge impact over time. Don’t let the future depicted in Wall-E become our Earth’s reality.
