said so eloquently in her post, I too believe we are stewards of the earth.
When we were young, Lizzie collected binders full of information about animals. I remember feeling awed as I looked through them, big and heavy, with facts and gorgeous photography. Lizzie, via our mum, has always paved the way for me when it came to caring about the world around us, especially the animals. We slept in giant, oversized t-shirts with Bang On The Door illustrations of giraffes and elephants. To live in a world without them, and the countless others we share this planet with, seems unfathomable.
Yet, that was the very theme of this year’s Earth Day, to protect the animals from becoming extinct. The way we have lived, as a collective, is not sustainable. Heartbreaking documentaries, such as Our Planet, show the devastating effects on the animals and world. This planet is all we have, and it is our responsibility to nurture and nourish her, to protect all that inhabit her.
There is so much we can do, even though it may seem overwhelming to think of it all. Just starting makes a big difference. Lots of accounts on here give advice on how to reduce our waste, make simple swaps, and work towards a more sustainable future.
When we support one another, without shaming, we will get there. Educating ourselves on the difficult facts will create a true catalyst for change. All the beauty of the world needs to be protected, now, so that we can continue to marvel at it for years to come.
