December 11 is celebrated every year as International Mountain Day. First celebrated in 2002, this year’s theme is “Celebrating Mountain Life.” The celebration is designed to stir awareness of the importance of mountains to human life, highlight the various opportunities in mountain development and to establish partnerships that will promote a positive change to the world’s mountains and highlands.
One cannot deny the huge role that mountains play in the ecosystem. They serve as home to a wide variety of plants and animals and majority of the world’s freshwater. Furthermore, mountains provide shelter to 12% of the world’s population. Unfortunately, human acts such as illegal logging, environmental degradation, mining, and armed conflict have threatened the very existence of these mountains.
The celebration of International Mountain Day is the perfect time to promote the protection of our mountains. There are different activities that you can do to sustain life in the mountains.
Constantly cutting down trees hampers the ability of mountains to protect people living in low lying areas from floods. Consequently, cutting down trees destroys the habitat of some animals thriving in these trees. Organize a tree planting activity in your community. Seed packets as giveaways will replace the old trees that were cut down and hence conserve the life that thrives in the mountains.
Recycling is a good way of doing your part in conserving the environment. Every logo seed packets that you plant takes at least 15-20 years to mature into a tree. It will only take less than 10 minutes to cut a matured tree to manufacture approximately 700 pieces of logo paper products (See samples). Recycling can help save 17 trees.
Do your part in environmental conservation
Protecting the world’s mountains and forests is everyone’s responsibility. The government cannot do it alone. We all need to pool our efforts in order to put an end to illegal logging and other practices. Let other people know about your advocacy using imprintable promotional items. Capitalizing on stickers with logo to spread your advocacy is very effective and will generate positive results.
We are God’s stewards here on earth so everything that was created is our responsibility. Let us not wait for nature to fight back for our irresponsibility because we cannot win against the forces of nature.
