“Earth Day 2018 is dedicated to providing the information and inspiration needed to fundamentally change human attitude and behavior about plastics.” (Earth Day Network)
It is a beautiful, sunny day to celebrate our planet! Earth Day has been celebrated since 1970, starting in the US and spreading worldwide, as more and more individuals learn how important it is to take care of the planet.
What are you doing to be kind to the earth and reduce your plastics? In our home, we are trying to consume less packaged products, eat less meat, use reusable produce/snack bags and share books through our Little Free Library (double impact as it reuses books and inspires reading)! I am planting some herbs to keep inside until the weather is warmer and planning my small garden so we will have some fresh produce this summer. Today, we will get outside and enjoy the sunshine and this week, my daughter’s geography class will be planting trees!
Here are a few great book suggestions for today:
- Letters to My Grandchildren by David Suzuki
- Food is the Solution by Matthew Prescott
- Zero Waste Home by Bea Johnson
- A Year of Less by Cait Flanders
- Unprocessed by Megan Kimble
