We are all familiar with the environment. It is all around us. It is everything which surrounds us naturally and affects our daily lives on the earth. Everything comes under an environment, the air which we breathe every moment, the water which we use for our daily routine, plants, animals and other living things. Any type of disturbance in the nature’s balance affects the environment totally which ruins the human lives. Our environment is getting affected to a great extent by the means of air pollution, noise pollution, water pollution, soil pollution. We all must take an oath together to protect our natural environment to keep it safe.
One of the projects that I want to promote is in keeping a two mile road debris free. We are currently faced with issues of alcohol and drug abuse. We not only have to worry about debris in our ditches but we not have a huge problem of needles being disposed in the ditches. This is not only unsafe for our community but it is also in our water ways. My project is to promote a clean environment. I will be organizing a team to promote a healthy community. We will be adopting and promoting our project through our own social media page. This will include the initial start up, adapting and final project. I believe that by starting this project, other members of the community will do the same.
