Earth Day 2017 was powerful, we marched for our scientists, for our planet, for our health, against the disgusting lies and feigned ignorance of our government and media.I spent half of Earth Day out documenting and taking part in the March for Science. The other half of the day, I’ve spent it gardening in the sun,I have so many new ferns, trees, and flowers to tend and I love them all.
Earth Day is one of my all time favorite holidays! Honestly, every year I wonder why we don’t make it a bigger deal. Can you imagine how amazing our planet would be if we gave Earth Day the same attention we give xmas?
It's earth day, please take a moment to appreciate the place you call home. Also, please don’t litter! It’s not difficult to find a trashcan and use it. It’s like a random person coming into your home and throwing garbage on the floor when there’s a trash bin not even 10 minutes away.
Every day is “Earth Day”; if we didn’t have our earth, we would never know a day. One day of recognition per year can never compensate for a year of apathy and irresponsibility; mindfulness regarding the health of our planet should be as natural and obvious as breathing.
happy earth day 🌎♻️
i hope each of you did something green today. In fact, I hope you do something green every day.
anything you can do to help our planet, do it! Taking the public bus, recycling, not littering, turning off electricity when you're not using it....
but why? ...
because unfortunately, our Mother is very, very sick. she is telling us this through severe storms, plant and animal loss, changes of climate and global warming, dirty air, rising oceans, sinking islands; the list goes on and on. it is clear as day these side effects are due to anthropogenic causes (it's our fault). Instead of denying the proof that is all around us, let's work on solutions to fix our mess. ✅
Let us all work together to heal our home, our beautiful wonderful extraordinary home. Let us not pollute our lands and oceans. Let us try carpooling and taking public transport (if you really don't need your car- don't use it!) Use clean, renewable energy! Try more vegetables than meat!
Let us help our animals, these magnificent creatures who have been here longer than us- are disappearing at a terrifyingly rapid rate. Let us restore our home for the younger generations, who have yet to travel and see the wonders of this world. Who face a future unclear and full of dangerous, scary obstacles.
This is my baby cousin: Kamylah. I worry for her future on this Earth, and what her generation will have to fix and overcome- because of us.
Kamylah and her generation depend on us to solve our mess as much as we could. There is still hope. I truly believe if we make this our priority, we can heal Mother Gaia.
To @realdonaldtrump : how will you count all of your money when you can't breathe?
spread awareness + love. 💚
I just finished this book and I really want everyone to read it! It's available off book depository. When people ask me about why I'm vegan or information to learn there's honestly nothing that out there that I can 100% get behind. And then this book came along!!! It covers everything and is so easy to read. Vegan documentaries can be at best somewhat elitist and idealistic and at worst straight up racist, classist and narrow minded. But i think veganism is one of the best ways we can create positive change at an individual level in more areas than most people realise. "There can be no great triumph over racism without addressing capitalism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, the environment that we live in, and the food that we consume. We have to recognise all these connections" - Angela Davis, revolutionary black woman, activist, educator, organiser (AND vegan!! ) #earthweek
"You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name
You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You'll learn things you never knew, you never knew"

Earth Week, Day 6 ~ Happy Earth Day! During my Freshman year of college, I was able to visit many farms through my Green House class. Fry Family Farm was one of those farms. The owner said that their farm grows things that nourishes the body, and they grow flowers because they nourish the soul. Flowers have always been one of the most beautiful gifts of nature. From the flowers in my Mom's garden to these beauties that fill up the Saturday Market with color & life.
Today we celebrate the beautiful planet in which we inhabit. Whether you planted a tree 🌳marched for science ⚛️or simply admired its beauty 🏞 it's important to remember that regardless of your background or beliefs..."The earth is what we all have in common"- Wendell Berry ✨🌎✨ #earthday#earthweek#environment#justice#environmentaljustice
Celebrating Earth Day at the most spiritually and mentally grounding restaurant @blisscafeslo with the wonderful @neuro_psych11 and @anastasia.narizhnaya! 🌎🌈☀️🌱 I indulged in a huge bowl of the best vegan chili, which consisted of cilantro, corn, black beans, chili sauce, tomatoes, TVP, brown rice, as well as a refreshingly zingy class of grapefruit @whalebirdkombucha kombucha and a richly decadent cacao walnut brownie cookie! I've been coming frequently for nearly nine months and I still can't believe everything is vegan and gluten free. 😱❤️✨
Currently, I've been swamped with club activities and power-studying for midterms, but this was the perfect mini retreat from all that! Hope you all had an amazing Earth Day as well! 😘🌼💕
In 2010 Bolivia acknowledged that Mother Earth #pachamama has inherent rights under the law. This lead to the passing of the "Law of the Rights of Mother Earth" which recognises that Earth has the right to equilibrium and restoration, and to be free of contamination. This was a huge step in the right direction, but the government has not kept its promise. We must love our home and take care of it. I propose we change #earthday into #earthweek and then into #earthyear because one day isn't enough. Pachamama has taken care of us, its time to take care of her.
