Hello Swish Fans! I hope that you are all having a green and clean Earth Day. Since 1970, Earth Day has been a day of mobilization and education on issues facing our planet. This has become more pressing in recent times as, "we treat this world of ours as though we have a spare in the trunk." That is why I am encouraging you all to get involved and educated this Earth Day, even if it is just reading a five minute article.
I have been lucky enough to do some traveling in my life to some amazing places. I find that the beauty in this planet is so wondrous that I am surprised at our lack of passion for the earth. . . So in the spirit of today, here are:
4 Great Activities to Celebrate Earth Day!
1) Watch a documentary: Fall in love with the earth all over again as you listen to stories and view amazing footage. Rob Stewart's latest film "Revolution" is an eye opening account on how we must save the earth if we want to save ourselves. It is in theaters in Canada today! Other swish picks: "Planet Earth," "Sharkwater," "An Inconvenient Truth," and "The Cove."
2) Have an Earth Day Picnic.
Gather your friends and co-workers together and have an Earth Day Picnic! Make sure to cook sustainable foods and use reusable containers. Each person shares one issue that they are passionate about with the group. Great food, great conversation, and great friends make for an educational Earth Day!
3) Join a Local Event.
Most areas will be hosting a local Earth Day event. Join in and learn about how you can help in your region.
4) Make a Resolution.
I find Earth Day to be a better time to make resolutions than NYE. Find a quiet place and think about your daily routine. Evaluate your impact on the Earth. Now pick one non- eco friendly activity to change for forever.
I hope you are all having a wonderful Earth Day and enjoying being here on this beautiful planet. I will leave you with some words from John Muir:
"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world."
