You have been asked to give a speech to students on Nature Day. Talk about what can be done to conserve natural resources for future generations.
 
It is an honour to address you on this lovely morning when people all over the world are celebrating Nature Day. I stand before you to talk to you on how natural resources may be saved for the future generations.

Over the years, we have been taught the importance of reusing and recycling. Through all the different lessons that we had, I do not remember the mention of natural resources. Friends, conservation of natural resources is one of the major reasons that we have been encouraged to reuse and recycle.

Let me focus on just the paper industry. When we say recycling, it is the recycling that immediately comes to mind because as students, this is the one product we use in large quantities. When paper is recycled, it reduces the need to cut down forests. We all know that softwood trees are a big industry. It is from the soft wood that we make paper pulp. Plantations of softwood trees provide a necessary support for the industry. There are many environment impacts in the planting of these trees, their maintenance over the years, the use of fertilisers and herbicides that build up to their harvesting. Each of these activities has its own impact on the environment. Every plantation is also a forest. When the forest is cut down in the name of harvesting the trees, there is a direct impact on the plants and animals that have established themselves in that forest.

When we recycle paper, there is no impact on flora and fauna due to deforestation. There is no threat to species due to loss of habitat. Thus, there is no disturbance to the natural environment. No workers are exposed to herbicides or the release of any dioxins. Consequently, there is hardly any acidification of oceans.

The forests that were not cut down to be replaced by plantations and the flora and fauna that live in that habitat remained undisturbed simply because we recycle paper. I have spoken to you only of the recycling of paper. Using paper as an example, can you imagine the beneficial impact that each one of us can have on the environment when we ensure that we recycle and reuse as much as possible? There are close to 7 billion of us on this planet. Can you imagine how much of the resources we could save by opting for reusing and recycling? I leave you with that thought.

Thank you.

Happy Nature Day!
