Everyday is Earth Day. Let us honor and praise our spaceship always, all ways.
“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.” – Native American Proverb
Today is Earth Day in the U.S. Isn’t everyday Earth Day? Isn’t everyday an opportunity to be more sustainable, conscious and responsible in how we treat Mother Earth? There are so many ways we can make a difference… and while one person cannot fix the “eek/ick factor” humans have caused over the last century, we can all chip in and make a huge difference! Please respect Pachamama… Because she is speaking to us… You can hear her cries in the shifting of the weather, colony collapse disorder and a slew of other ‘red flags’.
I have found that by being conscious and careful of my consumption I can be an integral ally in a greener and more sustainable world. I began by going back to the basics. That means everything from organic gardening, buying local, educating myself on alternatives, skipping the bottled water, borrowing, sharing and recycling clothing with friends, making cleaning and beauty products and by eliminating plastic bags, paper towels from my life. Plus, I cycle instead of gas guzzle. When we act on a grass-roots level we have the capacity to make great global changes.
According to Treehugger, we would need five planets if everyone lived like the average North American. We only have one, so let’s embrace Pachamama instead of break her.
