Short Essay on Importance of Clean Environment

Clean environment has been a question of importance and has grabbed a lot of attention lately. People are now gaining insight and becoming aware about the importance of a clean environment as it is important for the healthy life and a safe future. Maintaining the cleanliness is not the responsibility of one person alone but it is a collective responsibility. It is good for our health therefore it is of great importance to keep our surroundings clean.

People throw litter here and there. On the roads, in the society compounds, we see litter. So we must inculcate the habit of using dustbins and clean the litter as much as we can. Cleanliness should be initiated in all the offices, schools, societies and colleges. In fact many cleanliness projects and campaigns such as “Save Narmada Agitation”, “Swachch Bharat Abhiyan”, and “Go Green” have been undertaken by the Government.

The reason these campaigns had to start were the amount of pollution which was increasing day by day due to the excessive use of technology and science. Therefore, more and more industrialization and urbanization has been accountable for our environment. Keeping the environment clean is something which can’t be ignored. The health of humans and flora and fauna depends on the cleanliness of the environment. Dirty environment serves as an abode for lots of diseases. Cleanliness portrays your image like a mirror so if you like to keep your surroundings clean, it depicts your image and vice versa.

As humans we must take steps as little as they may be to help our environment, we must plant trees and we must be eco-friendly and also encourage others as well. Use stairs instead of elevators, use bicycles instead of cars, save water and plant more trees and recycle plastic material are a few measures that we must take.  By implementing these ideas, we can reduce the ill effects of pollution and begin living a peaceful life.

In the words of George Bernard Shaw “Better keep yourself clean and bright; you are the window through which you must see the world”. So ask yourself how you wish to see this world for yourself and the future generation.
