Today is the day we celebrate our planet and all the things we can do to try and help it. The humans on the planet haven't always been kind and have done some damage. But rather than getting depressed about it, we are going to all work together to find ways to help it. If you need ideas be sure to visit http://blogvillearts.blogspot.ca where Louis has put together all we are doing to help the planet.
I was personally most reminded of the need to do more to save the planet on my trip to Iceland in 2015.
Here I am standing on a glacier. Our guide said the glacier is receding 50-100 feet per year.
The place it was most apparent that we must work together to help our planet and probably one of the most amazing, beautiful places I have ever been:
While sitting looking at the icebergs, I wondered if my niece (who was 1 at the time) would ever be lucky enough to sit and enjoy the beauty of this place. Would they all be melted by the time she travelled the world?
I know the enormity of the task of reversing all the damage is overwhelming, but I believe the little steps we can take at home can make a difference. I challenge everyone to find one thing they can do this week that will help protect the planet. Nothing is too small! Together we can change the future!
