22nd April, World Earth Day! Apple has made some innovations and Giveaway program for this day
Every year 22 April is celebrated as Earth Day. This annual event is celebrated to make people living worldwide aware of environmental protection. We human beings are just thinking about the development and destructing nature just to earn money and live a luxurious lifestyle.
But with development and urbanization, we are also paying the price along with it. Everywhere there is pollution, crisis, droughts, chemicals in food, and the list goes on. This is high time that we give back to our beautiful mother nature which does not ask for anything in return.
As an individual, we can make a difference by doing whatever little we can. The most usual thing which we need to change for environmental protection is not using plastic, not littering the environment, saving water and light, and making optimum use of it.
