EARTH DAY....Bring it on!
Happy Earth Day!
The day to celebrate the 4.6 billion year old blue and white ball that we all call home.
It is also a day when we are reminded that we have a commitment.
The purpose of Earth Day should not just be the accomplishment of a single action on a single day, such as planting a tree or cleaning up a park --although these are wonderful things to do!
A true celebration of Earth Day is committing to long term environmental actions that make our plant greener, day by day.
Committing to buy green products such as energy-saving light bulbs.
Committing to buying local produce and eating sustainable food.
Committing to avoiding pesticides and herbicides.
Committing to reducing water use and treating it like the precious resource it is.
Committing to inspiring awareness and appreciation for our environment.
And, if you are my Cute Husband, it means committing to birding every day during spring migration!
Explore and enjoy something new on our big blue and white ball today...
