    Racial injustice has been happening from ages and this needs to be stopped when we see documentaries and movies about the same we feel disturbed and we as a society should encourage about the ill effects of this phenomenon

    Ten Simple Things You Can Do to Help Protect the Earth :
    Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Cut down on what you throw away. Follow the three "R's" to conserve natural resources and landfill space.
    Volunteer. Volunteer for cleanups in your community. You can get involved in protecting your watershed, too.
    Educate. When you further your own education, you can help others understand the importance and value of our natural resources.
    Conserve water. The less water you use, the less runoff and wastewater that eventually end up in the ocean.
    Choose sustainable. Learn how to make smart seafood choices at www.fishwatch.gov.
    Shop wisely. Buy less plastic and bring a reusable shopping bag.
    Use long-lasting light bulbs. Energy efficient light bulbs reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Also flip the light switch off when you leave the room!
    Plant a tree. Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change.
    Don't send chemicals into our waterways. Choose non-toxic chemicals in the home and office.
    Bike more. Drive less.

    Earlier we used to buy from a mall a single place to avoid going to multiple places, but then when we realized the cost and the savings we can do from buying locally from markets, not only you save a lot of money but you also help the local Economy

    balance of nature- A concept in ecology that describes natural systems as being in a state of equilibrium, in which disturbing one element disturbs the entire system. The inference is usually drawn that the natural state of any system is the preferred state and that it is best to leave it undisturbed.
