I know that all of you know about Earth Day, so I’m not going to tell you about the history of it. (If you don’t know yet and want to, check out this Wikipedia article on it.)

What I do want my message for Earth Day to be this year? For each of us to consider making one more change towards being a better human.


Earth Day

Can you:

  • Spend time outside, visiting your local Botanical Gardens or a neighborhood park?

  • Eat a meal outside (if it is warm enough in your area)?

  • Eat a vegetarian meal and celebrate all of the wonderful flavors of spring with strawberries, asparagus, peas, artichokes, pineapples, radishes, or rhubarb?

  • Watch a documentary like Planet Earth, Blue Planet, Earth: Making of a Planet to inspire your actions for tomorrow?

  • Pick up trash in your community and recycle or compost what you can?

  • Plan your next sustainable adventure with EcoTripMatch.com?

  • Sign up for my newsletters to download your copy of The Beginner’s Guide to Ecotourism?

  • Find a store that you like that sells clothing more in line with your values (recycled, organic, vegan, etc)?

  • Walk, ride a bike, combine errands to one day, or carpool more often?

  • Buy a Sunport to utilize solar power?

  • Switch out one everyday item for a more sustainable option (like cloth napkins instead of paper)?

  • Use natural products for cleaning and/or skin care?


How am I spending this Earth Day? Tending to my plants that have been patiently waiting for me to come back from Nepal, taking a nap because my sleep/wake schedule is still completely wacky from the trip, and having a nice dinner out with my husband.
What are your Earth day plans for today?
