We who are alive today are the trustees of this planet for future generations. We’re failing in our responsibility to pass it on intact. We need a new Earth ethic that embraces our responsibility for fairness to each other and to the future. We need new ways of educating that do not simply accept the status quo. We need to trade in our patriotism for a global humatriotism. We need a new approach to economics based on what is truly precious - life and the conditions that support it.

Care for the Earth, and the Earth will care for you

Earth day isn’t a political thing.

At least, is shouldn’t be.

Protecting the environment isn’t a gimmick.

At least, it shouldn’t be.

“Take care of the small things, and the large things will take care of themselves”. We know that.

A person is not defined by one giant decision. Who they are is the culmination of thousands of little choices. Each day, choosing small ways to be respectful to the world; deciding to take stewardship over the piece of the planet you live, work and play on - adds up to one respectable you.

After all, part of what shapes a person is their environment, right?
