Acts for the Earth!

By  

‘Tis that time of the year for the largest secular celebration around the World, Earth Day!

With over 1 billion participants, this 40 year old holiday spurred on by a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, Gaylord Nelson, continues to grow. The Earth Day Network and the Nature Conservancy are promoting “Acts” for the Earth. A little reminiscent of New Years Resolutions, these “Acts” of green help us commit to living more sustainably.

The Nature Conservancy’s Top 5 “Acts of Green” for Earth Day:

  1. Reusable bags
  2. Sustainable food
  3. Organic gardening
  4. Adopt a coral reef
  5. See the movie OCEAN

These “acts” cover the gauntlet from daily actions to lifestyle changes and donations. Integrating some of these helpful lifestyle tips with other goals of your own, like buying clean energy or reducing our footprint, can be part of your own plan for “Green Acts”.

Anyone want to share what they are up to or committed to for this Earth Day?

  1. Happy Earth Day. Going to have to implement some changes into my lifestyle.

  2. Happy Earth Day to everyone and I hope I’ve done my bit.

  3. Happy Earth Day everyone, have to admit I never knew you could adopt a coral reef, a novel way to help the environment.

    • Ha ha me neither! You can adopt animals, save habitat, and forests as well through various non-profits. It looks like a little bit of everything is up for donations to help survive :)

  4. Wish everyone a Happy Earth Day. Take care of our precious green and blue ball.

    Till then,

    Jean

  5. Hope everyone had a wonderful Earth Day and Earth Weekend!
