How To Gratefully Honor the Planet on Earth Day 2021

Happy Earth Day 2021!

We have a responsibility to educate ourselves and others in all the ways necessary to preserve and honor our beautiful planet. Below are just a few things we can do.

Ways to Safeguard the Environment

  • Reduce, reuse, recycle
  • Volunteer for community cleanups
  • Educate – yourself & others
  • Conserve water
  • Choose sustainable
  • Shop wisely – buy LESS plastic & take reusable bags
  • Use energy efficient lightbulbs
  • Plant a tree
  • Choose non-toxic chemicals for home & business use
  • Bike more, drive less

Another way to help is to vote for leaders and legislation that address:

  • the urgent problems of climate change
  • greedy corporations who put profits ahead of people & health
  • renewable forms of energy vs fossil fuels 
  • clean air & water protections

There’s so many more reforms that need to be done. Committing to even one or two changes will make a difference for future generations. We were handed a gift; let’s pay it forward!

What “No Fun” Restrictions Are You Thrilled to See Disappear After Covid?

Okay, okay…so this is the obvious one. And they won’t go away immediately, but… eventually?

Hugging, handshakes, high fives, and so on. I’ve certainly missed the human touch of family and friends! Hopefully, with the vaccine rollout, we’re on the way back to our old lives. 

But, maybe you’ve discovered something less apparent. Perhaps a secondary consequence of the Covid restrictions that especially bugged you. If so, please share in the comments. 


Happy St. Patrick’s Day

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.
