Our Profound Earthday Post

OK... so it's not really that profound.  Earth Day is truly a simple concept...  it is the day that's been set aside solely to promote and inspire environmental awareness and appreciation.  We all hope that every day is a perfect day to reduce, reuse and recycle.  Earth Day is great to raise global awareness of environmental responsibility, but it is up to all of us to carry that torch for the other 364 days of the year. The truth is that our beautiful home is still in peril and we all need to continue to make changes in our day-to-day lives to create the change we really need.  So many people ask me how to get started on living a cleaner and greener life and it only takes ONE small step.  That small step will lead to many more steps down a path of awesomeness... trust me on this one!

So instead of the normal "doom and gloom"... let's celebrate Mother Earth and all that she provides for us.  Get outside and do at least ONE thing today that you didn't do yesterday that will leave this beautiful place in better shape for those to follow. There are tons of great Earth Day events all over the world so get involved and help make a difference. Ride your bike to work, use reusable bags at the grocery store, and of course... go organic! It just takes one small step!

For those that are unfamiliar with the origins of Earth Day... this is for you.
It was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in held on April 22, 1970. Earth Day is celebrated in spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. Many communities celebrate Earth Week, an entire week of activities focused on environmental issues. The first Earth Week originated in Philadelphia in 1970 (starting April 16 and culminating on Earth Day, April 22.) Earth Day Network, a group that wishes to become the coordinator of Earth Day globally, asserts that Earth Day is now observed on April 22 on virtually every country on Earth!
