Earth Day is my favorite holiday. Would you call it a holiday? I would. It’s a day to stop your normal routine and consider our environment. We have President’s Day and MLK day and Valentine’s Day for goodness sakes. The earth contributes LIFE to us all. I mean, that sounds ridiculous because it is so simple. But true.
Even though Earth Day has been around since 1970 and has over a billion observers, it’s still warming up as a true event.
EVERYONE go out on Earth Day and pick up all that litter that’s everywhere. EVERYONE turn off the screens and lights in the evening and do something green. It turns out that’s more fun anyway.
People are in different stages of their acceptance that the earth is not an infinite resource. We use it up and then…what. Some people are ready for a switch to reusable bags on Earth Day. Some people might be ready to try to produce half as much trash. Or plant a garden. Or stop using certain toxic chemicals on the lawn or in the house. Some people might be ready to learn more about fracking. Stop buying balloons. Start shutting off the tap while brushing.
