Branch out for Earth Day

Give back to Mother Earth

7 Days in Dubai - - FRONT PAGE -

The world cel­e­brates Earth Day on Fri­day with si­mul­ta­ne­ous events from mu­sic fes­ti­vals to com­mu­nity cam­paigns. The global move­ment is call­ing on ev­ery­one to help with the am­bi­tious goal of plant­ing 7.8 mil­lion trees just in time for Earth Day’s 50th an­niver­sary in 2020.

Trees can fight cli­mate change be­cause they ab­sorb harm­ful C02 from the at­mos­phere and are cru­cial to our eco­nomic and en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity.

Plant­ing more trees is just one of the five ma­jor goals of the Earth Day Net­work, and they want ev­ery­one to spread the word on so­cial me­dia us­ing #trees4earth.

There are other ways to lessen our car­bon foot­print. Try out th­ese eco-friendly prod­ucts or join a fun event near you... glaiza@7days.ae
