earth dayWhat is Earth Day?
Here is a bit of background on Earth Day from Wikipedia: “Earth Day, celebrated in the US on April 22, is a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment. It was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in in 1970 and is celebrated in many countries every year. This date is Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. The United Nations celebrates an Earth Day each year on the March equinox, which is often March 20, a tradition which was founded by peace activist John McConnell in 1969.”

But What does it all mean?

Participating in this worldwide event is an important civic duty that all of us need to be a part of, and furthermore the actions we have taken today should not be exclusive to a date, but rather repeated every day of the year to make a bigger and more lasting impact in our efforts to become effective stewards of our planet earth.

What can we do?
every dayHere are three of the most important ways in which we can all make Earth Day more impactful:
1. Our governments and big corporations must invest more on carbon-free renewable energy that will end our common dependency on fossil fuels, including coal and petroleum.
2. An individual’s commitment to responsible, sustainable consumption.
3. Creation of a new green economy that lifts people out of poverty by creating millions of quality green jobs and transforms the global education system into a green one.

And How Can ICINE FANS help…Have you ever heard of “Spring Cleaning” and lending a hand?

You can begin by donating your time to non-profit organizations and help a good charitable cause, whether is helping someone or planting a tree, cleaning your own backyard or your closet and then donating some of those goodies to those less fortunate, join a group to clean the local beaches or highways…by doing some of these things you will feel a great sense of accomplishment and contribution!
All one has to do is just watch “Planet Earth” for a minute or simply go outside to realize how enormously beautiful our blue planet is and how important it is that we help conserve its beauty for many generations to come…So, let’s do our part and show HOW MUCH WE REALLY CARE!!!
