The week from April 16 to April 22 we celebrated Earth Week, but did you know this holiday has been around for decades? In fact 1970 it was created to help bring awareness to the Earth’s environment. Yes, before many of us were even born (not me I’m a boomer baby), people have said to be concerned about the Earth. But, what have we done to help? What did we resign ourselves to do differently this last week?
It seems over the decades we have allowed convenience to rule before conservation. Sometimes, it is not really our fault, we have been told that doing things differently would help the environment when in fact they did not—plastic bags. However, we cannot overlook our increasing desire for easier over Mother Earth—bottled water. We have been given some ideas to help like plant our own garden or recycle everything from boxes, paper, and electronics. Are we doing so even when it is not convenient? Is it enough? Is it helping?
I think in theory we all want to not harm the environment, but I don’t think we truly know what our actions are doing to the environment. Also, we aren’t sure how to measure the positive impact we may or may not have on Earth by doing what we feel are the right things to do.
Sorry, no answers this week…just a lot of questions…
