Happy Earth Day to you!!!! Do you ever find it overwhelming to have to be mindful of so many things these days? Our earth, each other, animals in need, people in need, there are so many causes that are so worthwhile that it can begin to feel a little bit too challenging to truly believe in and contribute towards all of them, or any of them. So, I try to do something small every day that helps me to contribute towards the things that I believe in. Here is how I approach Earth Day, every day – I have attempted to dedicate a small portion of my day to Earth Day every day for the past several years. I recycle my soda cans, turn the water off when I brush my teeth, and I requested no more paper statements for monthly bills.
Did you know:
1. Recycling just ONE soda can save enough energy to power a television for THREE hours.
2. Turning off the water when you brush your teeth saves FIVE gallons of water. A DAY. And
3. By paying bills online and getting no statement, you can save up to TWENTY-THREE pounds of wood a YEAR? For so many reasons, conservation of our amazing planet and its magical resources are so important. My motivation? My horses. Of course! (Pups too!) I want to see my horses in beautifully green open spaces for many, many years to come. Do this for your loved ones. And yourself. Small contributions matter! Change is not about some huge crescendo. Change happens quietly, and with momentum, when we all make small efforts to know better, do better, and work together.
