Today is Earth day! While we should be trying to take some time as often as we’re able to celebrate and honor this beautiful planet we are so lucky to live on, today is the perfect opportunity to take a moment to step back and think of some great ways to celebrate and give back!
Take a walk and spend some time outside. If you’re able to, physically connect with the earth by touching it with your bare hands or feet. This direct connection with the earth is called “grounding” and is believed by many to give people a direct connection to the earth’s energy.
Dedicate time and make changes to give back to the environment. There are many ways this can be done and you’ll have to decide upon the one that you enjoy most and fits you best. Ways that this could be done include by planting trees and other plants, by cleaning the environment. You could look into reducing your wastes by getting reusable ziplock bags, straws, and cut out plastic bottles by replacing them with reusable bottles and cups. Try shopping with reusable bags! They’re sturdy, large, and so much better for the environment.
Stay educated! There’s a lot to know about how the things you buy will break down into waste and if they can be reduced, reused or recycled.
Recycle everything that you can! On this topic, make sure that you’re separating everything into the right bins.. Our lovely recycling people don’t want to spend their day doing things that we could have!
There’s a lot that we all can do today and every day to thank the earth for all the wonderful days we have on it. What are your favorite ways to celebrate the earth? Have you done anything special today? Hope everyone is having an amazing start to their week!
