American writer and philosopher Henry David Thoreau wrote in the 1850′s that “In wildness is the preservation of the world.” The truth of his words remains profound today. Sheer numbers of people are stretching the earth’s capacity to provide sustenance. Yet, through compassionate consumption we can each make a difference and ensure a bountiful life for all.
From the choice of what we eat and wear to where and how we live. Our decisions leave an impact that stretches far beyond your hometown. Think globally and act locally. Previous boundaries are blurring as the world continues to shrink due to technology advances and resource dependency.
You are invited to participate in creating positive change by going dark on March 31st at 8:30pm. For that single hour hundreds of millions will celebrate Earth Hour and bring renewed awareness to sustainability efforts. Since 2007 the World Wildlife Foundation has organized this annual event. It began in conjunction with the Sydney Morning Heard when 2.2 residents turned off their lights. Now communities in over 35 countries participate. What will you do?
Give yourself the gift of quiet contemplation. Consider what changes you can institute in your life to help heal Mother Earth. Simple modifications are often the most significant. A great example is to eat the food you buy. Thousands of pounds of produce go to waste because we overbuy and don’t finish it. Leftovers can be used for lunch or swapped with a neighbor to broaden menus and reduce cooking duties.
Prefer group participation? Bring friends and family together to join in prayer, mediation or conversation during this special time. Celebrate in the community with a candlelight vigil. Do what speaks to your heart! This is a call to action that we can all heed. It is time to focus on the renewal of Mother Earth and the care of all her citizens! Together we can switch on the Global Light of Love!
