Happy Earth Day! I was just reminded by one of our beautiful alumna Susie (Erickson) Anon that it is Earth Day. I’m going to use the excuse that I was slow to the honoring of Mother Earth because I make an attempt to be a good citizen of the planet every day. In fact, I am developing a project that will honor our amazing planet and educate in a contemporary and relevant manner. While I can’t share details on that project yet, I would like to share what Susie posted that reminded me:
Happy Earth Day to everyone that calls this beautiful Earth home. We are thankful for all that Mother Earth has given us. I invite you to join me and so many others as stewards of the land to ensure our children and future generations can live a happy and healthy life. Let’s give more than we take. Let’s lead by example. Reply and let us all know what you want to do to make a difference. Our individual and collective efforts do make a difference.
Before you head out and take care of our planet I want to share a few more tidbits that I find interesting and helpful. Some quotes to remember: “The Throw Away Doesn’t Go Away;” “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle;” and my favorite “Save Water Pee In the Shower.”
In fact, if everyone in the U.S. flushed the toilet just one less time per day, we could save a lakeful of water about a mile long, a mile wide, and four feet deep every day. It’s amazing how simple little things can compound and make such a profound impact. I’ll leave you with one more example from the Sunnyslope County Water District website in Hollister, CA… “The average American uses 140-170 gallons of water per day.” Let’s commit to being better stewards of water. What are your tips to conserve? ? ❤️
