Earth Day – April 22, 2016

Today is dubbed Earth Day. It is great to have a day where we stop to think about all the many things that this brings to mind. It means a lot to many people and is of less importance to others. My question…why can’t we….

Is it really that difficult? This year I have been spurred on to pick up trash in honor of one little girl’s wish to take care of the earth. It was a great feeling to know that I might be helping and more so, that a young girl, who could have wished for anything would have asked for that.

If everyone threw something out of their car window every day, just think how much trash there would be. It is pretty simple to hold on to the stuff and dispose of it correctly!

Then there is a post I read recently that made me think similar thoughts, The World Isn’t Your Ashtray, which brought about similar thoughts for me. I know people don’t want to smell up their cars with cigarette butts, but here is a great idea…stop smoking and clean up your lungs too!

There is the part of Earth Day that refers to clean living, gardening techniques, GMOs, and more. We could go on and on…all good food for thought, but again, my question…why not think this way every day?

Go ahead, be motivated today, but let’s work on caring for our Earth one person at a time, one day at a time…every day!

love the earth Love our Earth…we can do it!
