On April 22nd this year people around the world will mark the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. Alleluia, Wow, how far we have (and have not) come in 50 years!
Here are some Earth Day (or any day) actions you can take:
- Re-examine your efforts to reduce, reuse and/or recyle. Perhaps it is time to start composting, try meatless Mondays (or Tuesdays...).
- Reconsider your driving habits. You've been at home more lately - how does that impact (negatively and positively) your vehicle-based lifestyle? What might you do differently?
- Recommit to working to protect and repair the parts of the environment for which you are responsible. Dispose of trash properly, keep yard runoff to a minimum this summer, advocate and vote for sustainably measures.
- And as spring comes, enjoy the beautiful world we live in. It's God's gift to us - and we can be a gift to it too.
