Save Environment Speech

Our environment is what sustains us and provides us with everything we need. So to protect our environment is our duty and responsibility for providing ourselves with a sustainable future. In this article, students will read all the points and topics of a speech on the need to save the environment.

What is the Environment?

Environment is everything that we can see in our surrounding atmosphere and geographical areas. It is the primary source of food and resources for humans and all animals. The environment consists of all the biotic and abiotic components and there is an interrelationship between the two components of the environment.

Need to Save the Environment

Humans play a vital role in saving the environment. Our environment provides us with resources of our needs, we are responsible for maintaining the environment. But we are responsible for the imbalance in nature and doing more harm than good to our environment.


Environmental protection and upliftment at individual, organization and national levels can be ensured by means of holistic and sustainable development. 

Humans have degraded the quality of the environment through various means. Through mining activities, air pollutant emission, burning of polluting fuels and such other activities have degraded the quality of the air. Disposal of untreated harmful wastewater to ponds, human activities like washing, cleaning, bathing, and dumping of waste into lakes and ponds have resulted in degrading the quality of the water bodies which in turn have caused decrease of life in water bodies.

What can be Done?

As the proverb goes, “if there is a will, there is a way”. There are many things that we can do to help to reverse the ill effects on the environment to some extent. 

  • Planting trees which will help replace the lost woods and trees cut off through years of deforestation and grazing activities. Plants absorb the carbon dioxide emissions from humans and animals and convert it to oxygen in return through photosynthesis which is essential for breathing in all humans, animals, birds, etc. 

  • People should try to use less personal transportation and use public transport more to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. They should also try to shift to environment-friendly fuels for vehicles, kitchen uses, etc.

  • Coal should be used very judiciously so that air pollution is caused less. It is an irreplaceable fuel, therefore, it cannot be replenished easily. 

  • People should try to shift to eco-friendly methods and alternatives to electricity. Switching off electronic devices when not in use, use solar-powered devices and shift to fluorescent light bulbs instead of normal bulbs so that there is less consumption of electricity.

  • Water should not be wasted unnecessarily. 

  • Use of plastic should be limited. 

  • Proper disposal of wastes, reducing the amount of waste produced, reusing and recycling items whenever and wherever possible to reduce waste production.

  • Investing in organic farming will help reduce production of waste from farmlands.

  • Alternatives to plastic-like jute and paper should be used.

  • Governments should treat wastewater properly as well as take care of garbage disposal methods and shift to more eco-friendly methods.

  • Municipalities should hold campaigns on waste management and judicious use of resources to help reduce consumption of irreplaceable resources and use environment-friendly methods for sustainable development.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

1. What is called an environment?

The sum total of all abiotic and biotic components in our surroundings that affect and influence human lives is known as the environment. In short, the environment is all that we can see around us. The environment includes biotic components or living things which are plants, animals, fishes, birds, etc. and abiotic components or non-living things which include water, air, land, sunlight, etc.

2. How is the environment in danger?

Human activities that deplete natural resources endanger the environment. These include mining, grazing, shifting cultivation, deforestation and emission of greenhouse gases through the burning of non-renewable sources of energy like coal and petroleum products, burning of woods and other things that release harmful chemicals into the environment such as CFCs that deplete the ozone layer. These activities cause an imbalance in nature including the greenhouse effect which results in rising of overall temperatures of the earth, flooding, melting of polar ice caps, hurricanes, etc.

3. What can we do to save the environment?

In an effort to help save the environment, humans should come together to join the cause. There are several measures that can be taken individually or collectively by means of orders given by the government. Some of these steps include reducing and replacing the use of plastics, reusing and recycling waste materials, proper waste management, reduction in the consumption of electricity and other non-renewable sources of energy. Governments and municipalities should take steps to help step towards environment-friendly methods of promoting and solving problems.
