Many of you out there are fueling yourself with green goodness that has come, gratefully, from our beautiful, vibrant Earth. These plants have helped regenerate, energize and empower your body to live life to its fullest. There isn’t a doubt that consuming greens on a regular basis does a body good.
However, what about the other kind of green? Green meaning “eco-friendly”.
The act of consumption comes in all shapes and sizes. We often strive to limit the food we consume, yet we might not limit ourselves in other ways. Watching a lot of television, buying more of something than you need/use, or driving places that you could easily walk or bike are some basic ways we can easily create waste. No matter what the waste may be; time, money or pollution, it attributes to the relationship we have with ourselves as well as with our world. Not to mention, the physical damage we may be causing to Earth as a result of our autopilot habits.
According to the Plastic Pollution Coalition:
“Before the Flood,” a new documentary by National Geographic, follows Leonardo DiCaprio around the world, highlighting the truths of our world’s current state due to this over-consumption.
While Earth still continues to provide us these natural gifts for our bodies, she is rapidly losing her vibrancy. The colors of our beautiful, green and blue Earth are fading and growing more stains from the marks of smog, plastic, trash and oil.
Instead of continuing in our ways, with an internal sigh of discouragement, let’s make an effort to do the work to regenerate, energize and empower our Earth like she does for us.
One person can truly make a difference. Be the change.
