Earth Day is a very special holiday. It’s a reminder to recognize the amazing gifts the Earth delivers to us, each and every day. Over the last 3 years, I’ve made an incredible transformation into a tree-hugging Earth lover. I’ve eliminated things in my life that I thought were essential. I’ve found alternatives to many products I thought I could never live without. And I’ve changed my diet to a “kinder” one. I’m no eco-god though. I still have a few things I do that are definitely not as kind to the environment as I’d like.
We should make changes where we can, and hold on to what's important to us, until we can make a sustainable switch . I’m not perfect, but I do make meaningful, small-scale changes that impact the environment in a big way. I’m striving to change some of my less-than-savoury environmental practices mentioned above over the next year. I’m a baby-step kind of girl, I’m not hasty. No health or environmental change I’ve ever made has been instant, but I do try to do a little something each day to improve. It’s incredible to look back and see the changes that have happened over the last 50 years regarding environmental achievements, and I hope to be able to witness firsthand, even more of those changes over the next 50 years.
This hippie-approved granola is filled with oats, buckwheat, carrots, and cinnamon. It’s good for you, the planet, tastes like carrot cake, and has Earth lover written all over it. Let’s all do something nice for the planet today. Hug a tree! Eat some granola! Choose glass over plastic! Baby steps will eventually turn into a long walk. Enjoy this wonderful day, fellow Earth friends!
