Have you hugged your Earth today?
Earth Day 2012
This weekend we celebrate our Earth and hopefully launch many new traditions to treat her well.
On Saturday, my son had his T-ball game, and it was our turn to bring snacks. So we thought we would send out this note to parents the day before and see if we could come together as a community who cares for our planet:
Here was the result of a simple effort and idea…
Just loved how this Earth Day celebration of “Picnic for the Planet”came together. Even though we were not officially counted for the World Record due to a morning game, we all loved being part of something bigger then us!
I was also pleasantly surprised as I shopped for healthy food snacks for kids. I shared our plan with our neighborhood grocery store Trader Joes staff and they loved our idea so much that they wanted to be a part of it…they donated a dozen recycle bags for our kids snacks….leaving them an opportunity to continue their recycle/reuse efforts. Thank you Trader Joes!
I invite you to start today to do your part for Mother Earth…she helps you through every season of your life…let her know how much you care.
I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.
