How can Quarantine Help The Environment?

Quarantine changed a lot of people and turned out to be a rather unique experience. Remaining inside makes us feel like we’re losing our connection with the outside world. NASA’s satellites detected a significant decrease in Nitrogen Oxide (NO2) over China after the COVID-19 outbreak.

There are many ways in which quarantine helped the environment such as:

  1. Road, transportation hubs, and airports around the world remained closed for several weeks. This led to reduced carbon dioxide emissions.
  2. Due to the lockdown, fewer people left home and there was much less noise pollution.
  3. The wildlife remained calm and undisturbed for most of the quarantine.

How can We Celebrate Earth Day at home?

We saw a sudden drop in pollution in a major country. The same things happened all around the world. It’s good news but not exactly permanent. The environmental impacts of quarantine are temporary unless we take solid, long-term measures.

A great way to celebrate earth day this year is to start something that helps the environment. You don’t need to go out in the street to have your voice listened to.

You can record your protest against environmental pollution online.It’s a matter of supporting environment-friendly brands like Futbolmagazine. Learning more about sustainable living can be a great way too. Start a new chapter and inspire others to do the same!

  • Plant a tree! It’s a simple, yet permanent way to leave a positive impact on the world even when you’re not around.
  • Each one of us produces tons of waste. You can start to:
    • Recyclehousehold waste including paper, glass containers, metal containers, etc.
    • Compostfood materials like spoiled fruits, and vegetables, dry cat/dog food, etc.
