Celebrate Earth Day And Your Marriage

Tuesday, April 22nd marks the annual day of environmental focus, Earth Day. Each year, people around the world use this day to spread awareness about environmental issues, educate others on greening initiatives, and organize events centered on making our planet a better place!

This year, why not make Earth Day a special event for you and your family?

It's time to celebrate Earth day, so why not celebrate your marriage as well?

With the massive number of organizations that participate in this day each year, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding an event to be involved in. Whether it’s a cleanup project, planting trees, or an educational program on reducing your own environmental impact, we can all do something to contribute to the wellbeing of this planet we call home.

It’s also a great chance to form good habits around the house that can help save the planet AND reduce your monthly expenses. In fact, some Earth Day programs are focused specifically on easy lifestyle changes or basic home improvements that will reduce the amount of gas and electricity you use each day – saving you money AND helping the Earth!

Even if there aren’t Earth Day events in your area (or just nothing that sparks your interest), you can still participate all on your own. Go on a nature hike, plant flowers in your yard, just get outside and enjoy the fresh air and all of the joys the great outdoors has to offer.

As you soak up the splendor of the natural world, think about what you can do to help. Are you recycling? Are you leaving too many lights on? Are you driving short distances when you could easily walk? Are you mindful of the amount of waste you’re producing in your household?

Every little bit helps, and if enough of us are actively trying to reduce the negative impact we have on the environment, we can make some real progress – or at least help prevent things from getting worse.

Earth Day is about both protecting the planet we share and stopping to understand why it’s so important to protect. It’s our home, and it’s the only one we’ve got. The Earth provides, either directly or indirectly, every single thing we depend on for survival, and if we aren’t careful, we will damage it to the point where it can no longer sustain us!

Beyond the simple reality that we NEED the Earth for our survival as a species, it’s also a vast, wondrous place that we should take care of because we want to, not because we have to. Get out there and explore, and remind yourself why the Earth is worth saving!
