How to Celebrate Earth Day from Home
Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970. Fast forward 50 years later and here we are in the midst of a global pandemic. While everyone is questioning what happens next, all I can think of is how the skies seem a bit clearer, a bit bluer, the mountains are more vivid and the air tastes cleaner. Less traffic, more hiking and biking. Less time spent at a desk, more time spent outside with family. Maybe, just maybe, being confined to the comforts of our homes has taught us a thing or two. To appreciate the beauty of a warm spring day, to take a longer look at the mountains that surround us, to value the quiet moments, cool breezes and wide open spaces. That’s what Earth Day is all about. Respecting and cherishing the natural world around us.
