As April is Earth Month and today happens to be Earth Day, today’s post is all about appreciating nature and finding ways to help our planet.
Be One with Nature
In today’s technology-filled world, some of us (myself included) find ourselves retweeting gorgeous sunsets or liking landscape photos instead of actually going outside and seeing these things for ourselves. So… first things first, lets interact with the Earth! Soak up the sun, dance with the flowers, gaze up at the moon.
Go outside! Explore! Adventure!
Appreciate all that Mother Nature has to offer. 🙂
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
C’mon, guys, we all know the three R’s from kindergarten, possibly even preschool. Nothing has changed, they are still key factors to follow.
Reduce: Spring cleanout anyone? Go the minimalistic way and reduce the amount of unnecessary stuff you have. You and the Earth will both be happier in the end.
Reuse: If you’re hopelessly attached to unnecessary items and you just can’t seem to throw them out, reuse them for something else.
Recycle: Get rid of waste the right way. Even though it’s almost too easy to just throw your trash away, just remember that you are helping humans, animals and the environment when you recycle.
One last note: It seems silly to just do these things in April, or just today, and I don’t think that’s what Earth Day is about. Let’s use Earth Day to discover what more we can do for the environment. Let’s treat every day like Earth Day.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on how to help the Earth. 🙂
