Earth Day is observed on April 22 each year events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Every Earth Day marks a pledge that we being the citizens of this planet should try to protect the environment as much as we can. From planting trees to reducing CFC emission, every effort counts.
Despite the use of gases like CFC is prohibited, it’s only a brick to build a wall. Automobile emissions especially from inefficient engines is among the major causes of air pollution that lead to ozone depletion and hence, global warming. People who spend lot of time on busy roads and highways face an increased risk of lung disease and even cancers.
