    Dia Mirza Pens Heartfelt Poem On Earth Day Urging People To Invest In Caring For The Environment

    New Delhi: “Our home is threatened by devastating loss, a loss, of consciousness to such a degree that climate is changing drastically,” with lines like these, actor and United Nations Environment Programme goodwill ambassador Dia Mirza penned a thoughtful poem on World Earth Day. Through her poem, she also talked about how one can save the planet by becoming the ‘Earth Warrior’, she said,

    So, what can I do you ask? Refuse, things that you know are toxic, non-biodegradable, all that plastic that we use and throw without caring where it will go.

    Remember every item we buy will find itself a landfill, a toxic pile that will pollute our land, our water or our air.

    Be conscientious, be fair, be the earth warrior who cares.

    She further adds,

    Reuse, recycle, upcycle, with pride. Simplify needs, declutter life, question excess. Make responsible living a creed.

    With the final appeal to people to do their bit for the planet, Dia signs off,

    Sustaining this planet for all life should be our collective duty, our urgent goal.

    Just as our birthday celebrates the blessing of life, let this Earth Day be a reminder that the only way we will survive is if this planet thrives.

    Apart from the poem, Dia Mirza also took part in the clean-up activity at Dadar beach along with 400 Mumbaikars on the Earth Day. Her motive to join the clean-up was also the same – to educate people about the growing marine litter and how it is affecting the planet and to spread awareness about ongoing Maharashtra Plastic Ban and why it is good for the environment.
