Today is Earth Day


Forty years after the first Earth Day, the world is in greater peril than ever. While climate change is the greatest challenge of our time, it also presents the greatest opportunity – an unprecedented opportunity to build a healthy, prosperous, clean energy economy now and for the future.

Earth Day 2010 can be a turning point to advance climate policy, energy efficiency, renewable energy and green jobs. Earth Day Network is galvanizing millions who make personal commitments to sustainability. Earth Day 2010 is a pivotal opportunity for individuals, corporations and governments to join together and create a global green economy. Join the more than one billion people in 190 countries that are taking action for Earth Day. (from Earth Day website)

April 22 is Earth Day, but it is so sad that very few people are concerned about preserving the earth's balance. We only have one earth, may we all learn to take care of it.

Am I doing my part in taking care of our earth?
- I started taking care of plants and is teaching my family to do it as well
- Appliances are turned off and pulled off the socket when not it use
- Lights are turned off during daytime
- We use pail & dipper (tabo) instead of the shower
- We use a cup when brushing our teeth

We are still looking for more ways to conserve electricity, water and improve the air quality. My husband and I hope that solar panels will be available in the Philippine market soon, so that we can switch to reduce carbon footprint and our electricity bills too.

Here's a comprehensive website with tons of articles on how start living green.

Today there are 6,816,333,851 people in the world. If we start doing our share, we can heal our ailing planet. We get everything from the earth and it it time to give something back.

Make every hour as earth hour.

Make every day as earth day.

Blessed be.
