Today is officially Earth Day. There are lots of activities and festivals almost everywhere that help to celebrate and bring awareness to taking care of our Mother Earth. I think most people I know try to do something everyday to live a greener life. Whether it's recycling, bringing your own bags to the grocery store, buying local produce from the farmer's market, buying organic or keeping a little garden. Every little bit helps and not just today but everyday.
We in the creative community are blessed with the talent and skills to be able to create beauty from something that might otherwise be thrown away. Buying vintage and second hand is definitely recycling. My husband would say that I'm a little too enthusiastic when it comes to collecting used things.
However you choose to celebrate Earth Day I hope you can carry this spirit with you everyday. It's not always easy, I know. And some cities are much more earth friendly than others. My city is known for it's suburban sprawl and lots of people here still drive around in big gas guzzling SUVs. But there have been lots of changes too and that's always a good thing.
So enjoy all the beauty of the earth today....reduce, reuse and recycle as much as you can....make more art...and have a lovely Easter weekend.
