The world is a beautiful place ergo it's important to sustain this beauty for the long haul. The World Environment Day celebrated on June 5th is a reminder for humans not to take this planet for granted. It's the only planet in the universe - as far as we know - to sustain life. It's imperative to preserve our ecosystem for future generations. This day was first proposed by the United Nations in 1974, to raise awareness about the need to sustain our bio-diversity and protect them from further harm. Today we are at the precipice of rapid deterioration. Conserving and protecting our environment has become the need of the hour. On this WED, let's take a look at a few quotes and be inspired to do our bit in protecting the planet.
