HAPPY EARTH DAY!!!!
good morning friends and Happy Earth Day to you all! today is a day to celebrate the earth and to remember we must be the earth's caretaker...a job that is not being done very well at the moment! we must stop and remember all of the steps we can take in our every day life that will make a difference in the end. oh i know that people stop and say "like if i shut my lights off...that is going to make a difference...if a don't run the water so much...like that is going to make a difference...etc..." well bottom line -- it all makes a difference and there is so much we can do to help our mother earth. CELEBRATE every day! we need Earth to stay happy and healthy for all the future generations and for ours now. when i think about it...the word RESPECT comes to mind...we need to show everything on this earth RESPECT and it will flourish...the oceans and all it's incredible inhabitants, the earth, the rain forest, the skies, the air...every square inch if we showed respect this earth would be a better place for it.
A few things you can do to celebrate
eat GREEN!!!! have salads...pasta with tons of local vegetables...support your local farms...not only are you helping the animals but by cutting down on your meat intake...the methane gas in the air is decreased. try it -- i do it every day and it is wonderful! being veggie is not hard at all...it is a joy!
create a bird feeder or bird house with your little one...not only is it fun but you are teaching a new generation the importance of our mother earth and it's children...plus the birds will certainly thank you for it!
recycle...this should just be a part of your life...second nature!!!! create a craft with recycled materials...easy and fun!
give up bottled water!!!! get that filter and reusable water bottle...it is mind boggling how much plastic is not used and how the land fills decrease with this one easy step.
grow your own veggies...plan for your new garden! oh the rewards are so delicious!
plant a tree in your yard or donate in someone's honor or memory...such a wonderful thing.
remember to respect the animals that are on our earth...treat them with dignity and respect.
change a light bulb oh so simple.
drop your water temperature by 1 degree.
spread the word to everyone...remind them that all the little things they do are so incredibly important and they do make a difference!
