I love the idea that Earth Day started in 1970 when life seemed simpler. The progress we’ve made in technology is amazing at instant gratification but more complicated in the end. There’s always something more to do.

With all the discouraging news, it seems overwhelming. What can work is to bring your vision down to YOUR world. if you can commit time and energy to groups to make a bigger dent that’s inspiring, just make sure that you can be healthy and equipped so you can have the best to give of yourself.

One of the leading issues with climate change is plants. Nothing can live without them…think about it. They were put on this earth to nurture and enhance all forms of life. The short answer to being practical with Earth Day is to surround yourself with plants of all kinds. Learn about them, their uses and their needs. Then help them to do their job to nurture you!
