A Mandala For Earth Day

Gaia deserves better from us than to be regarded simply as a trash heap, and we should all be ashamed of ourselves for the way we are treating her.  We should all reduce our footprint and walk more lightly on the little blue planet we call home.

Clean up after ourselves as we go along,
Eliminate (or at least cut down) on plastics in home and workplace,
Go for organic and biodegradable whenever possible,
Embrace a diet that is more plant based, avoid factory farmed meat and poultry,
Consider a hybrid (or more fuel efficient) vehicle,
Support sustainable forestry practices and plant trees,
Vote for political candidates who are pro-earth, write letters, sign petitions and vigorously lobby those who are not,
Support environmental literacy in our homes and schools
Reuse, recycle, rethink,
Make a joyful pro-earth noise.

There are more ideas here.
