Earth Day

Ed2Every April 22nd the world celebrates Earth Day. Cities participate in a community clean up, plant trees and other plants, and unite as a community for a common good. I think this an awesome thing for my community and the communities around the world. It just takes a small step like throwing your water bottle into a recycling bin or depositing your plastic grocery bags to the recycling bin. We do this with our grocery bags at our local Harris Teeter. Check your local grocery stores to see if they offer a recycle bin. You can make things like this fun for you children also. I recall that my children studied conservation and Earth Day when they were in school.  That gives parents an opportunity to continue the conversation at home.  Create games for them to do or take them on an afternoon excursion after they spend time cleaning up the recyclables or working in the compost pile.

We live on a beautiful planet.  Remember the first time you saw the photograph of the earth from outer space?  What an impression that made on me, even to this day.  A common phrase is, “Love your Mother”.  That applies to the earth as well as to our biological or adoptive Moms! Earth Day should be everyday!
