Ten Ways to Honor My Mother (Earth that is...)

Colorado Rockies - Beautiful Mother Earth

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” 
   Mother Teresa

  Mother's Day is a great time to tell Mom how much you appreciate all she has done for you but it's not a bad time to look around at our beautiful Mother, the Earth, and offer thanks to her too.

How can I thank my Mother Earth?  Most people agree that she is hurting and it's time to find some ways to mend the damage we've done and care for our planet.

Here are some ideas I am trying to incorporate into my daily life.  Many are old chestnuts I've  known about for years but sometimes forget.   Some are new ideas.

Conserve water in the shower, brushing teeth, sprinkling the lawn  
Turn off lights, air conditioning and  appliances when not in use
Walk more, drive less,  or take the train when going to the city
Recycle and reuse 
Support local farmers
Eat less meat
Advocate for earth -friendly legislation 
Plant a tree or an entire garden
Compost - start a bin in an unused corner of the yard
Buy a more fuel -efficient car 
Support organizations that support  the environment
Adopt a coral reef, it may save YOUR life, click on the link to find out more :
