How Will You Celebrate Earth Day 2015?

Earth Day 2015


Here are my ideas for honoring our glorious planet on April 22, 2015 and all year long.

Enjoy Nature and Plant a Tree

Walk More, Drive less, and Carpool or Take Public Transportation

Respect All Living Creatures and Eat Plant-Based Foods

Recycle, Reuse, Conserve

Live in Harmony With Our Environment by Buying Organic

Divest from Fossil Fuels/Invest in Environmentally Friendly Concerns

Support Solar, Wind, and Thermal Energy Sources and Use Energy Efficient Appliances

Before you go, please let me know how you honor Our Extraordinary Planet and what measures you are taking to conserve, re-use, and recycle natural resources. If you prefer, please share earth day memories with us.

The quote for today follows:

"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world."

-- John Muir

  1. Hi Nan,
    I conserve by composting, always buying energy star appliances, turning lights off as much as possible, always use organic fertilizer or manure, eat organic and/or local foods, growing more of my own food this year, have water barrel & use to water plants, use solar lights outside, and this I am going to be planting some seeds to honor Earth Day. Thanks for sharing your ideas,

    1. Thanks Marla. I can count on you to set such a good example for green living. I don't think I've mentioned this before. Planting and maintaining a garden is a way for us to be grounded, a spiritual way to connect us to the planet and each other.

  2. Great advices! I love nature, wildlife and animals. It is a strong driving force to care for the environment and the health of the Earth. I try my best to live as sustainable as I can without going off the grid. Since gardening is one of my passions I love to grow things to support wildlife. Thank you for caring for the planet and all the living!

    1. Thanks Charlotte for the encouragement and your great green living ideas. Yes, now that so much of our lands are industrialized, wildlife has a challenging time surviving. Thanks for being so dedicated and kind to all living creatures.

  3. Hello - I've read this just in the nick of time! I think I'll do some veggie planting to honour this special day. I dug the patch over last week when I found some time on my hands and the weather was fine - now I need to get planting (I already have some chitted potatoes and some onions from my Dad to get in). I often cycle to the gym rather than drive, so I'll make sure I do that too. #HHGN blog hop

    1. Thanks so much Vanessa. for sharing. I must admit I didn't know what "chitted potatoes" meant, so I researched the term. For those who want to know what it means or want to "chit potatoes" for your garden, here's a link from Mother Earth News @ http://www.motherearthnews.com/organic-gardening/greensprouting-potatoes-zb0z1203zlon.aspx. Happy Earth Day and keep up the great eco-friendly lifestyle. Warm regards, Nancy A.
