Happy Earth Day!
Good afternoon people and Happy Earth Day everyone!
I am proud to admit that I was born on the 9th anniversary of Earth Day, it's the perfectly apt day for me. I am happiest when with nature and I am always on a mission to get more people to be more environmentally friendly, be it through recycling, eating a vegetarian/vegan diet, planting trees, looking after the conservation of the world...anything possible.
One way you can support this year's Earth Day is to pledge to do an act of Green via Facebook and the Earth Day Network. Your pledge can be anything you want, it can be a pledge that is already there or one that you pledge yourself.
Oooh and randomly for those of you in Phoenix, Arizona, Lowe's are giving away 1 million trees so those of you in the area, get your butts down there and get yourself a tree!
And super oooh, if you want to give an excellent rainforest gift to someone then hows about planting a tree in Costa Rica for someone's honour? Green Gifts alongside Care2 is working with the people of Costa Rica to help it become the world's first carbon neutral country. :)
At the end of the day, it doesn't matter where you are in the world, as long as you are committed to saving the planet and pledge to do at least one thing that shall help this matter, then at least you are doing just that. If that is not enough though, do as much as you physically can. Educate others. Don't stop and don't be put off by any shit or skepticism you may receive. At least you know you're working towards a worthy cause! :)
