I checked out fb in the morning and realised that yesterday was Earth Day. I want to confess that I really didn’t know that it was this month. Well, now that I know when it was, I really feel that I owe our mother Earth this post (atleast)!
I am thinking of celebrating it today. I love the idea of “days”, it really gives a reason to celebrate your liking or love for something. I was planning to get some cute ceramic pots for my plants and also a new plant or two. I have been postponing it for quite sometime now because of other commitments. But today seems to be a perfect day to do it. What better way to celebrate Earth Day than planting some plants and grooming the old ones! I am super-thrilled as it’s really making me feel good.
Also I am on a 2-week strict veg diet as I am planning to go vegetarian. I don’t know exactly how, but I have a very strong feeling that in some or the other way I am contributing to something good for the environment and the eco-system. And that is exactly what keeps me motivated whenever I crave flesh. I think that I am helping out atleast 1 chicken to live his life freely 🙂
There are a lot of small things that we can do to contribute in preventing the environment. Some of the things that I do from my side to protect the mother earth are:
- Avoiding the use of lights in daytime and using sunlight wherever possible.
- Throwing garbage in the dustbins only.
- Trying not to waste water, paper or food.
- Planting trees.
- No smoking.
- Keeping the volume of my music system low (okay, not always but I try to!)
And some more that I really can’t remember right now. In short I really believe that if we play our part as an individual responsibly then we can help mother nature in a very big and effective way!
Happy Earth Day 🙂
