The Whole World In My Hands
Happy Earth Day everyone! The weather is lovely today and we spent it biking around Toronto, grocery shopping in Kensington Market, and enjoying the splendid outdoors our city has to offer.
I have also completed a special set for my photos from my trip to San Francisco. I thought it was only fitting to highlight it here, being that San Fran appears to be a green city. They have even recently put forward a by-law to forbid plastic bags at grocery and retail stores. Totally cool idea. Check out this great garbage can too.
We all can do something to treat our beautiful Earth. One way to help is to think of it in 4 parts - it's physical self, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Yes, our Earth is a living, breathing thing, so why not treat it as such, right?
For me, today and continuously, i am committed to:
1) Decrease the amount of plastic bags i use by reusing the ones i have and remembering to always bring one of my many cloth ones
2) Relish in the beauty of the nature outside and say thanks for it
3) Make the connection for others that being a vegan is also a conscious decision to nuture the environment (for me it is, anyways)
4) Do a little prayer for Mother Earth to remind her that i care
What can you do?
Edited to add: Oops, i forgot to mention this lovely group blog: Sew Green, a collaborative blog that looks at environmental ways to be crafty. Check it out.
