In recent years, the importance of sustainability and addressing environmental urgencies have become a worldwide priority. With global warming reaching a critical point of no return, it is imperative that meaningful actions are taken urgently.
The Earth Day movement has been encouraging and advocating such efforts since the 1970’s. With 1 billion dedicated individuals and over 190 supporting countries, it aspires to a greener future by empowering communities through environmental awareness and education.
According to the Earth Day Network, deforestation is one of the greatest contributors to excess CO2 emissions. It is reported that an area of tropical rainforest equal to one football field is lost every 6 seconds. More so, as reported by Global ABC, the construction industry accounts for a further 40% of greenhouse gases and an incredible 36% of worldwide energy usage.
Such critical facts call not only for global intervention, but also a change in collective mindsets, putting the future of our planet at the forefront of daily living.
