Earth day 2017.. from the heart

So I’ve been thinking…

It’s taken me a few tries to start this post, you see, I feel passionately about this beautiful blue/green orb of ours and I so desperately want to be ‘that’ person who lives a perfectly green life, but the truth is, I’m seriously lacking. As a family, we recycle, keep our food waste down, turn off our appliances and lights and we keep our thermostat low.

But…

We could do so much more. My children are very environmentally conscious, something I am very proud of, and my 4yr old always questions me, “why do people throw rubbish on the floor?” ( she has picked up litter and carried it home to our bin)IMG_4740 (2) & “why do people cut down trees if they help us to breath?”  When I answer I try to explain that some people just don’t care, a concept that she struggles to understand. As a parent I am blessed to be able to help raise the next generation, and I feel very responsible for the sorry state we are handing our planet over to them. I need to follow the example of my thoughtful children and try harder to make a difference.IMG_4743 (2)

I would like to make a pledge on Earthday 2017, that myself and my family will:-

  • Eat less meat
  • Use our feet more and car less
  • use re-usable water bottles
  • use re-usable straws
  • STOP using disposable coffee chain cups

I offer you all to talk with your families about what you can do to help our beautiful home, and leave it a better place for our children.
