The first Earth day was observed in 1970 in response to escalating concerns of an environmental crisis. Forty one years later we are still faced with similar concerns. We have made great strides, however, and it is becoming increasingly easier to go green. Environmental concerns and supporting efforts to go green has become a part of the mindset of mainstream thinking.
There are so many organizations that are supporting environmental efforts and providing information, awareness and an opportunity to be involved in a community effort toward positive change. Aligning ourselves with some of these organizations is a great way to, become a part of making a difference in the world today.
Getting back to basics, living consciously and making an effort to tread lightly and move forward in the right direction can make a big difference in the grand scheme of things. Becoming aware of our sources of food, water, and the products that we use can make a big difference in the choices we make.
Celebrating Earth day is a good opportunity to collectively reconnect with Mother Earth and renew our personal commitment for positive change. Finding gratitude in nature will nurture reverence and respect for her gifts. Taking a moment of reflection is a simple way to celebrate the Earth. Together, our small efforts can make a big difference as we learn to live in balance with nature.
