When did you last open your eyes and admired the bounteousness of nature? Probably, not even once in the past decade or so! How many of you have actively worked for plant a tree campaign? May be one out the hundred or even thousand reading this piece! How many of you have in your own small way contributed for pollution control? None! How many of you have been complaining of global warming and its effects? Almost all, isn’t it? If the indifferent attitude towards environment and the surroundings go by the rate, it wouldn’t be long when the environment that we live in today wouldn’t be life-friendly. It is here that environmental activists come to foray – they not just help conserve and protect the environment but also work for its improvement. An environmental activist may work for several issues and campaigns – climate change, waste management, sustainable development, renewable source of energy and so on. America has been reeling from the issues of environmentalism, and it is here that environmental activists play their role. From America’s first woman to its President, actors to musicians, journalists to philanthropists, many of them have turned to become environmental activists. Through their work, they have been raising awareness and consciousness of saving the planet from the brutalities. Check out this segment to find out in details about American environmental activists, their life and their campaigns.
