The theme Each World Environment Day is organized around a theme that draws attention to a particularly pressing environmental concern. The theme for 2019 is “Air pollution. World Environment Day promotes ways to improve the Earth’s environment, such as conserving forests. The day is used to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. A platform for action World Environment Day is the United Nations day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment. Since it began in 1974, the event has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in the world. Above all, World Environment Day is the “people’s day” for doing something to take care of the Earth. The ways that trees can help to clean the air should not be overlooked. Trees are an important, cost-effective solution to reducing pollution and improving air quality.
Trees help to lower air temperatures and the urban heat island affect. This reduction of temperature not only lowers energy use, it also improves air quality, as the formation of ozone is dependent on temperature. Trees also reduce pollution by actively removing it from the atmosphere. Trees and other vegetation must use what is in their environment. Vegetation plays an unexpectedly large role in cleansing the atmosphere. Trees create an ecosystem to provide habitat and food for birds and other animals. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and potentially harmful gasses, such as sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, from the air and release oxygen. Trees Help Fight Climate Change. As trees grow, they help stop climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in the trees and soil, and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere”.
