How National Tree Day Promotes Greener Communities

People are undoubtedly feeling the heat brought on by global warming as a result of the increase in surface temperature caused by the burning of fossil fuels over time. Community organizations have started environmental initiatives to conserve the environment in order to address this problem and climate change.

Every nation has been urged to join the fight against climate change by the 13th Sustainable Development Goal of the United Nations. The reduction of carbon footprints must be a global effort. Focusing on using renewable energy sources like solar electricity is one option.

Or they should think about installing an appropriate garbage disposal system in the neighborhood. The best course of action in this environmental conflict is to plant a tree, a specific organism with the same lush green leaves you have become accustomed to.

Trees are so essential to our ecosystem that we have created a special day for them. National Tree Day or most commonly known as Arbor Day nationwide celebrates the importance of trees for a green community.

This nature care event can be celebrated at home or in schools. And it continues to remind each and every one of the major roles that trees play not only in keeping the surroundings pleasing to look at but also in making sustainable communities.

Celebrations like National Tree Day have helped promote the idea of living in green communities that can meet the basic needs of a person while sustaining the beauty of the environment.

Green communities open doors for multiple possibilities that can bring out the nature lover in most people. Keep it green and enjoy this nature care event known as National Tree Day.

Here are some environmental activities you can do as you participate in National Tree Day this July 31.

Plant Trees

One of the most common environmental activities done on arbor week is to plant trees. Planting trees is what the celebration is all about after all. Anyone is free to choose what kind of tree they want to plant but it is important to consider if it will thrive in the area allotted for it. With every seedling that you put in the ground, it’s fulfilling to think of it as an investment for the future.

Tree-planting helps replace the trees lost over the years, making a sustainable way of getting the best out of these precious resources. The later generations will thank you for your support of the preservation of the environment because planting more trees benefits the entire world in the long run.

Ditch the cars

Walk your way around to lessen your carbon footprint. Be one with nature as you feel the cool breeze that trees around your luxury house and lot in Metro Manila provide with each step that you take. It is a morning routine worthy of waking up to. And it’s a nice way to celebrate what trees can do.

If you’re not into long walks, riding your bike through a side street lined with towering bamboo or oak trees on both sides has a peaceful factor to it. Inhaling the fresh air from the swaying leaves as you pedal your way through benefits both you and the environment.

Even if you don’t fancy a walk or a ride, meditating under the first tree you see can be a calming way to celebrate National Tree Day. Focus your mind on your breath as you listen to the rustling of every leaf and that can be a soothing way to relax.

Do nature photography

Grab a camera and go out there. Take a picture of all the scenic sites that you’ll encounter. Found a unique tree? Capture it. Saw wild animals outside? Snap a shot. There are so many picturesque views to see outside.

Switch things off

We often take our energy supply for granted. Let that television rest. Turn off those lights to save power. One of the many things that trees can offer is the fresh air that is often overlooked when you leave your humidifier running for a bit too long.

So allow yourself to gain a new appreciation for the natural light from outside and the cooling wind blowing through the trees. Celebrate arbor day by conserving energy.

Enjoy Family time outdoors
