MUMBAI: On the occasion of International Earth Day, that too during the time when the entire world battling a virus pandemic, Bollywood took this opportunity to share on their official social networking handles for everyone to act responsibly and do our duty in keeping mother earth green and clean.
Sonakshi Sinha made this 'heartful' observation and shared it through a tweet:
We've already seen Bhumi Pednekar's artistic side in terms of acting but on this day, she unleashed her inner poet:
You can save water & plant a tree.— bhumi pednekar (@bhumipednekar) April 22, 2020
Say no to single use plastic & make her free.
Recycle your things, Don’t make more trash,
We have really abused her, let’s not be rash.
I love you Earth is all I can say,
Everyday should be Earth Day :) #HappyEarthDay #EarthDay #ClimateWarrior
Happy Earth Day 🌏— bhumi pednekar (@bhumipednekar) April 22, 2020
Our Earth is our home,
It’s one of a kind.
It shelters many together,
animals & people with the same love and like.
It gives us water, food and a land to walk,
It gives us air to breathe and the sun for heat.
But what am I doing to protect her? pic.twitter.com/SmeZVo1ry2
Kajol also shared her profound and hard-hitting thoughts on Earth Day:
The earth does not belong to man. Man belongs to earth. If that has not been proved categorically to us at this time I don’t think it ever will be.— Kajol (@itsKajolD) April 22, 2020
Happy #EarthDay2020 to all the remaining species.
Dhak-dhak girl, Madhuri Dixit came up with a suggestion for this day and urged us all to build a better world.
This lockdown has shown us how little nature needs for it to revive & thrive.On the 50th #EarthDay let us all pledge to #DoOurBit by switching off appliances when not in use, plant trees,use fuel & water conservatively.Together we can build a better world, one we all are proud of pic.twitter.com/VZEIkYCebZ— Madhuri Dixit Nene (@MadhuriDixit) April 22, 2020
Rakul Preet Singh also took to Instagram to write, "Get lost in the beauty of nature to find yourself! We haven't really been responsible enough to nurture the planet that feeds us all. It's time we realise the same and strive to be better citizens of earth. They say nature has its ways to teach a lesson, maybe this is a warning to preserve our habitat. If we truly surrendered in Earths intelligence we could rise up rooted like trees! Happy Earth Day."
Sidharth Malhotra also talked about the fact that nature is still in its form and thriving even if humans are locked in their houses during these dire times.
Today, while we are locked in our houses, nature continues to thrive. We all need to remember this when we get out that we are just guests on this beautiful planet not the owners . This #EarthDay2020 let’s do our bit to heal our planet and build a better future.— Sidharth Malhotra (@SidMalhotra) April 22, 2020
Richa Chaddha shared an entire video on the occasion of this day and also gave put some great like hacks regarding growing beneficial plants at your own home, apart from acting responsibly and saving water and using recycled items.
She captioned it, "It's EARTH DAY! Woke up and made a video, (simple enough for a 6-year-old, but we all tend to forget the basics)! While everyone is busy sharing pictures of peacocks on roads, dolphins in the sea, birds and clear blue skies… Let's not forget that nature is healing and we must not get back to our old ways once the lockdown is relaxed! Every day is Earth Day!"
