Today is Earth Day.
Does that mean anything to you? It means something to me! I believe that we were entrusted with the Earth by its Creator be good stewards and to take care of it. As a whole, I don’t think we are doing a very good job. As individuals we are doing what we can.
It’s the little things that make the biggest difference.
Making good food choices and standing up to Monsanto and GMO’s is a huge way to care for the Earth. GMO crops sicken and kill bees which is detrimental to our eco-system.
When we choose real food, grown locally and organically we are putting our money where our mouths are. The more people that do this, the more we show that we will not tolerate mutated foods that destroy farms and make people sick!
Little things like:
Ride a bike. Take the bus. Walk to school. Or better yet, homeschool. Turn off the water. Change a light bulb. Cloth Diaper. Birth at home. Breastfeed. Grow a garden. Make your own household products. Learn to preserve. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Cook at home. Eat real food. Use reusable bags. Support local farmers. Join a CSA. Shop Farmer’s Markets. Drink raw milk. Have backyard chickens. Support WAHM’s. Compost. Plant a tree. Plant flowers. Think sustainable. Think about your future great-grandchildren.
Babysteps! I don’t even do everything on that list but I’m trying! One little change can mean more than you think.
Happy Earth Day!
