Mother Earth, the only place we have to live.
The time we spend around nature helps us to reflect on our efforts to keep our planet healthy for our sake and the sake of all living creatures.
Every day is Earth day is a reminder that the task of taking care of our planet is a daily pursuit. Practices like reuse, recycle and re-purpose –that give a new life to our waste– are simple but meaningful ways to contribute. It is estimated that every year we dump 19.4 billion pounds of plastic into the ocean. And, for anyone like us big fans of breeze summer days; this is shameful.
Government agencies and more companies are changing their practices and enforcing some changes on us too; like reminders to limit our water consumption, the ban on plastic bags, or to bring your own bag to the grocery store to mention a few.
Every day is Earth day is a commitment to environmentally-conscious daily choices and to enjoy more of nature from time to time.
As part of this global effort, we have gathered some inspirational quotes that will make us appreciate more and more our tiny blue dot called Earth that is our home.
