Show the planet some love
There’s so much to love about the world, but we need to take care of it. This is a great clip to use to show the harmful impact humans are having on the planet and encourage people to clean up and care for Earth.
The Earth from Space
From down here on the ground, our planet feels like a big place, but when we see it hanging in space, we get a sense of how small and fragile our home can be.
Family cleaning up the forest
World Earth Day is about taking action to ensure the incredible planet we live on survives for the next generation. What better way to start than with small acts close to home? Litter-picking is something we can all get behind. In this clip, a happy family is cleaning up their local forest, showing anyone can get involved, regardless of age.
Planting a tree
Along with picking up litter, another small act you can try to close to home to celebrate World Earth Day is planting trees, flowers, and hedgerows. This clip features a close-up of a woman planting a sapling in a green woodland area, carefully pressing the baby tree into the green mossy opening.
Plastic bag floating in the ocean
Plastic is a big problem for our planet, and no more so than in the ocean; not only does it make visiting the beach unpleasant, it severely affects marine life and enters our food chain through the fishing industry. This clip of a plastic bag floating in crystal clear waters is an excellent reminder of why taking your rubbish with you is so important.
Enjoying the outdoors
Being able to enjoy our open green spaces with family and friends is what World Earth Day is all about. In this clip, a young family enjoys a picnic in a beautiful open park with their happy dog.
Field of solar panels reflecting the sun
Solar power is another fantastic way of drawing power from our natural resources, and we’re seeing more and more Solar farms popping up around the globe. In this clip, a drone tracks over dusty fields filled with solar panels, reflecting the summery blue sky.
Bee on a yellow flower
This close-up shot of the humble Bumble Bee zooms in on the small beauties on our planet. World Earth Day is a great chance to show some love for all the creatures that we share this beautiful planet with.
Looking after our planet shouldn’t be reserved for the one day a year we celebrate World Earth Day; the lessons and values can be a part of your and your family’s daily lives. Whether litter picking, recycling, or planting new trees, we can do tons of small acts in our towns and cities to make our homes a little greener.
