Well, it is April 22, the world's Earth day.

Earth Day is now a global event each year, and we believe that more than 1 billion people in 192 countries now take part in what is the largest civic-focused day of action in the world.

The environmental movement was started in 1970 and it was Rachel Carson's bestselling book Silent Spring that disclosed the effects of the use of pesticides - in 1962.

From planting trees to cleaning up their respective locale, several concerned organisations come out to streets to reaffirm their support for protecting the environment.

Dubai marked World Earth Day 2018 in a really unique way, getting a Guinness World Record for forming the longest line of plastic bottles using 58,447 used bottles. The day is celebrated to spread awareness about the problems facing the earth and the need for conservation. Governments and corporations should also take necessary steps to tackle plastic pollution. The 3D art shows a crocodile coming out from a water body and stop pollution has been carved in the sand.

Earth Day Network, the organization that leads Earth Day worldwide, today announced that Earth Day 2018 will focus on mobilizing the world to End Plastic Pollution, including creating support for a global effort to eliminate single-use plastics along with global regulation for the disposal of plastics.

"EDN has built a multi-year campaign to End Plastic Pollution". The theme was very pertinent especially in the context of Pakistan where the use of these not very easily degradable plastic bags is still on the surge to alarming proportions.

Cynthia Villar, chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Natural Resources, asked the government to "take bolder and more innovative measures" to reduce the amount of plastic entering the waters.

The UK has made a number of moves towards dealing with the plastic problem in recent years, including charges for plastic bags in shops and various coffee chains and supermarkets pledging to recycle coffee cups.
