Earth Day is meant for a day to demonstrate and promote environmental awareness and calls for the protection of our planet.
Although it is a good reminder, it's better to keep Earth Day everyday!
For the Beauty and Goodness of the Earth
I live in the Boreal forest, close to nature.
I love the trees and it grieves me to see some of the logging practices destroying our beautiful ecosystem.
I'm not against harvesting lumber but can you not do it in a sustainable fashion!
Same with taking trees for paper.
Often paper seems so removed in our minds from their source, trees. The paper usage in our country is astronomical! Folks often using paper mindlessly.
I know I need to remind myself to use this natural resource wisely.
Things like -
- Using both sides of the paper
- careful on the tissue use
- thinking before printing out stuff - is it really necessary?
- reusing and recycling paper and paper items
The earth is what sustains us and I believe there can be food enough for everyone!
My way of working towards this is -
- not to waste food
- not to support, with my dollars, companies that do not use sustainable methods of producing food.
- gardening and growing my own food, creating an abundance to share
- buying local, where I know the producers
With this idea of growing your own food and buying local address another problem - pollution!
This food will not have to be transported large distances with all the pollution it causes.
I'm glad Earth Day was created - it's been a good reminder for me and I hope you too!
With that said I hope you all are enjoying this day and celebrating our fabulous earth!
Personally , I'm out sitting in the sun, barefoot in the grass, breathing in the fresh country air while I write this post.
Happy Earth Day!
An Earth Day gift for you -
