I am very excited to have been selected to write the main post Cascadian Farm’s first blog carnival and it’s right in time to celebrate Earth Day and I look forward to reading everyone’s contributions. To get you started, here is what Earth Day means to me and how I will be celebrating this year.
Earth Day to me is just another day that I can teach others to be aware of the decisions that they make in their every day lives. I like to use the day as a platform to educate others that when we consume more resources than our Earth can provide, we risk depleting her of all of them. I feel that it is our responsibility as Earth’s inhabitants to make choices that are sustainable for our environment and by doing so; we can live in harmony with nature for generations to come.
My family spends every Earth Day working on a community service project. We are avid lovers of the outdoors and spend almost all of our free time either sailing, snorkeling or paddleboarding in the ocean or walking on our favorite local beaches. In previous years, we have participated in many different types of environmental cleanups. This year, we are partnering with a local conservation group to help clean-up the beach at our Nature Conservancy Center.
