TODAY IS PETROLEUM DAY
Petroleum gets a terribly bad rap most of the time these days, and of course it is true that it has contributed to the pollution of our planet. However, petroleum is not just used in cars. It is also a key ingredient in other substances we use on an everyday basis, including plastic, detergent, rubber, fertilizers, pesticides, paint, photographic film, makeup, candles and many medicines.
In other words, petroleum is a key part of 21st century life. Petroleum Day is a chance for people to realize just how big of a part it plays in our lives and celebrate all the things this resource provides. However, the unfortunate truth is that this resource is a finite one, so Petroleum Day gives people the opportunity to focus on ways of conserving petroleum and using it wisely.
How to Celebrate Petroleum Day
Whatever your feelings on using petroleum, the effect it has had on our civilisation is undeniable, and that’s why celebrating Petroleum Day could prove very educational as well as interesting and entertaining. Celebrations can range from raising awareness of petroleum and its uses to trying to live a day without petroleum based-products in order to appreciate its value and impact on our lives.
