“We need the tonic of wilderness. We can never have enough of nature.” –Henry David Thoreau
Take time this Earth Day to experience and enjoy the tonic of wilderness. Whether you plant a tree, vegetables in a garden or flowers, giving back to the Earth is good for the body, mind and spirit.
We can all make a difference this Earth Day in the following ways:
· Write or call local, national and international leaders to phase out carbon.
· Limit your meat consumption as the meat industry generates one-fifth of man-made greenhouse gas emissions worldwide.
· Americans throw away a billion pounds of food each year. Turn your food waste into soil by composting.
· Stop using disposable plastic.
· Buy local produce and you’ll not only eat healthier, you’ll also reduce your carbon foot print.
· Help the environment by reducing the amount of junk mail you receive.
· Thousands of old electronic devices are thrown into landfills every year, polluting the environment. Recycle your e-waste instead.
