New Delhi: April 22nd every year marks the onset of Earth Day. A day that is celebrated annually to raise awareness about our home planet and how we can save and protect it from recurring damage.

Started in the year 1970, Earth Day is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network and celebrated in more than 193 countries each year.

Every year, the event is celebrated under a different theme. The theme for 2017 is “Environmental and Climate Literacy”, chosen to empower everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection.

With this in mind, Google decided to impart some wisdom on how to safeguard the environment and encourage people across the world to be more environmentally friendly with its interactive doodle today.

Google's latest doodle for Earth Day is in the form of a slideshow and shows a fox who dreams about an Earth that's been polluted and adversely affected by climate change and how it makes small changes in its lifestyle to avoid the dream turning into a reality.

In present times, when the dangers of climate change and global warming loom as large as ever, there is a constant pressure upon the entire world to do their bit and contribute towards the betterment of our home planet. Why? Because there is only one Earth.

The doodle also features Momo the cat, and Google Weather's favorite frog who accompany the fox in its quest to save the environment.

With its doodle, Google has tried to guide us on ways we can play our roles as caretakers of the environment, which in turn will also help protect the Earth. Efforts like using less electricity, riding bicycle instead of buses, use of wind turbines and solar panels and plant greenery.

However, Earth Day is not just an event to be observed on one specific day. It is primarily a reminder for all to do our rightful duty to save our planet everyday. Earth Day is a motivation for you to start right now.

Happy Earth Day!
