Well it’s that time of year again, my favorite holiday! If you read any of my past #EarthDay blogs, you would know that I think Earth Day should be a national holiday! Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in the day to day of life, that we forget to pause, breathe in and appreciate the little things around us……like the rocks, the mountains, the ocean, the wind and so much more. The earth gives to us in so many ways. On this day, I’m going to ask you to do the same thing I did two years back:
Commit to do ONE small gesture below that will help our beautiful planet!
Leave the car alone and bike, bus, walk or carpool.
Turn off the television and unplug other electrical devices.
Replace lightbulbs with LED lights
Stop using paper towels, napkins, plates, and plastic utensils.
Carry your own stainless or glass water bottles and coffee tea containers and reuse them over and over.Choose a ceramic cup if you drink coffee at a coffee shop.
Avoid plastic products.
Purchase items that aren’t overly-packaged.
Use biodegradable soaps, cleansers and other products wherever possible.
Insist on foil or cardboard/recyclable containers for take-out rather than Styrofoam
Buy locally sourced organic foods.
Cook at home
If clothes aren’t dirty, wear them again!
Hang clothes in sun to dry them
Carry shopping bags with you
Play music, sing, dance and celebrate!
Enjoy Earth Day Songs!
Check out Songs For Teachings #EarthDay playlist.
But don’t forget to listen to my #Hunktabunkta songs “All The Way Around The World!” And “Thanks to the Earth”
