How Are You Celebrating Earth Day 2012?

I celebrate the earth 360 days a year. This includes being thankful for the abundance it offers my family and me everyday. I show this thanks by putting earth-preserving behaviors into action every single day such as using and purchasing goods that are Fair Trade, staying away from BPA containing products, composting, recycling EVERYTHING that can be, growing my own food, using little water, re-purposing goods, up-cycling goods, supporting local farmers… the list goes on. I hear from my patients, colleagues and friends, “isn’t it hard? what’s the big deal? I do what I can do.” The answers are N O, living an eco-conscious lifestyle is far from hard. Learning calculus was hard, finishing grad school was hard, but all the actions I listed are S O easy. These lifestyle choices require only three very simple things: action, conscious behavior and not being a lazy inconsiderate ass! Sound hard? Not so much right?!

We can all do more, so become aware of how your actions and behaviors affect the earth, your well-being and the people and communities around you.

If you love the earth and like living here, prove it by checking out a few of these articles and putting yourself into conscious action everyday!
