In celebration of Earth Day, we are not only sharing with you an amazing makeup tutorial, but we're also sharing with you all the different ways our earth is healing during the quarantine. There's no denying that these times are weird, but we can all recognize that something beautiful is coming out of it -- we are reconnecting with our home and our planet is getting the chance to breathe.
But, before we share with you all the ways Mother Earth is healing, here is a makeup tutorial on our YouTube Channel that you NEED to see!
Air Pollution Levels are Decreasing
While the world is slowing down, air pollution is dropping in countries like China, Italy, and the UK. Air pollution is extremely harmful, not only to our planet but to our health as well. Satellites have detected that there has been a notable decrease in nitrogen dioxide, which is caused by road traffic.
Since it has only been a little over a month that the world has been in quarantine, this is amazing news and shows just how fast our air can recover! It's a good reminder that we can have a safer, healthier, and cleaner future for us and the planet.
The Himalayas are Visible Again
Air pollution has prevented the residents of northern India from seeing the Himalayas for about 30 years. Now that the world has been in quarantine, the air has improved, and the mountains are now visible. A lot of the younger residents are seeing the snow on top of the Himalayas for thefirst time!
The Venice Canals are Clearing Up
The world-famous Venice canals are the clearest they've ever been in 60 years! Now that there are no boats on the canal, the water has become crystal clear, and fish have become visible in the water.
Animals are Reclaiming the World
We’re not the only ones who have noticed a change in the world during the quarantine. Animals all over the planet have been spotted wandering into cities and land that they usually wouldn't step foot in. Now that these places have become so peaceful and quiet, it's safe to say animals are wondering what's going on!
Herds of deer are roaming the streets of Japan, mountain goats are roaming the streets of Wales, and wild boar have been seen wandering around in northern Italy.
Dolphins have also returned to the Marine Drive due to the decrease in water traffic and pollution. They've been spotted playing in the water and having the time of their lives. If that's not the cutest thing you've heard in a while, then we don't know what is!
People are Coming Together
People are coming together... but from a distance of course! We are putting our differences aside and working together to create a better future. There is no doubt that the love and kindness going on in the world right now is healing the earth.
How to Celebrate Earth Day
Earth Day might be a little different this year, but there are still ways that you can celebrate. If you're able to, go out on your porch or balcony, have a breath of fresh air, and take in all the beauty of the outdoors.
You can also celebrate by taking care of the planet to the best of your ability. Turn off the lights when you're not using them, don't use plastic water bottles, use reusable batteries, and ditch the plastic straws.
We hope that this post on how the earth is healing brought you joy!
