World Earth Day | Restore the Earth, Save Our Planet

We have only one earth.

Only one earth to enjoy.

Only one earth to use carefully and wisely.

Only one earth to leave to our future generations in a condition at least as good as we inherited it.

We have a moral obligation.

And You and I can make a difference.

 I created this photo to commemorate World Earth Day. It's titled "Just Passing Through"  to remind us that we don't own planet earth. We belong to it for a short while and are only passing through. We need to trod lightly, tread gently and reduce our footprint as we journey through. We have a responsibility to act as custodians and caretakers of the planet; to enjoy it, take care of it and pass it on for future generations to inherit and enjoy.

World Earth Day

April 22nd is World Earth Day and the theme for 2021 is 'Restore the Earth'. We can all, in our own small way, play a part to make things better. After all, little drops of water, make a mighty ocean.

10 Ways to Save the Earth

Celebrating World Earth Day on one day of the year is great. But, instead I'm trying to commit to making every day, Earth Day.

Commit to just a couple of things that you can do this year to make the world a better place. Here are a few ideas from

1. Unsubscribe to paper catalogs and donate to The Canopy Project to save trees. For every $1 donated, one tree is planted.

2. If you enjoy spending time outside, support the Great Global Cleanup. Carry a bag on your walks and pick up trash while enjoying your walks.

3. Did you know changing your diet can help fight climate change? Opt to go meatless on Mondays.

4. Calculate your personal carbon footprint and make changes to reduce it.

5. Compost your food waste!

6. Act on Plastic. Don't stop at 'reduce, reuse and recycle' but also 'remove, refuse and rally' to get your local leaders to ban plastic bags and single-use plastic items. 

7. Buy organic food to keep your body and environment free of toxic pesticides. 

8. Buy local food to reduce the 'foodprint'- the distance from farm to fork. Support your local farmers and buy produce from farmer's markets, local growers and what's in season.

9. Stop buying disposable plastic water bottles that end up as piles of trash in landfills. Use a reusable stainless steel water bottle instead. 

10. Take shorter showers and use a water saving shower head.

If all these ideas seem too daunting to you and you're not ready to commit to any of this, there is still one tiny thing that you can do that will make a difference.
