Love Your Mother Earth

April is the month that we humans officially express our respect and love for our Mother Earth. We do what we can to keep our planet clean and healthy, in the same way we want to keep our homes clean and healthy for our families.

There are so many ways individuals can make small efforts to show the Earth we love her. So, what will you do to express your love and respect for our beautiful planet Mother Earth?

This year, there is a special focus to end plastic pollution, which was announced by Earth Day Network (EDN), the organization that leads Earth Day worldwide on April 22. EDN reminds us that plastics are among the greatest threats to the health of our planet. They state that, “From poisoning and injuring marine life to the ubiquitous presence of plastics in our food to disrupting human hormones and causing major life-threatening diseases and early puberty, the exponential growth of plastics is threatening our planet’s survival.” https://www.earthday.org/campaigns/plastics-campaign/

Is your business or team joining in to help bring greater awareness to preserving the health of the earth for future generations? You are the leader, the one who inspires change. If you haven’t planned to participate in any events, there is still time. You can contact the Earth Day Network to find out how you can participate. Or you can initiate small changes within your organization. Perhaps encourage your team to stop collecting plastic bags at the super market. Maybe you can give your team tote bags with your own special message for Earth Day. Respect for the earth may be given its day in April, but it can be expressed every single day of the year.
