Mantra for #earthday ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What we do in the present will decide our future. 🌍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let’s reflect and change the way we behave, what we consume, what clothes we wear, how we reduce our impact and what we can do good for future generations and the planet.
Be an example, change your habits but also help others reduce their ecological footprint. Together we can make a difference - step by step! ♻️🌱 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have a low-impact and happy Easter everyone! 🌸

Watching the sun set high above the crowds at Manuel Antonio National Park. One of Costa Rica’s most beautiful and diverse parks! Home to over 100 species of mammals, my favorite being the three-toed sloth (which I still haven’t seen)
Right after this photo a storm rolled in and the rainforest lived up to its name. Could you imagine a world without places like this?! That could be a reality if we don’t make changes to our current lifestyles. We all matter in the fight against climate change. The time is now! 🌍 #earthday2019#savetheplanet
Happy Earth Day! I love when clients incorporate earth friendly practices. This wedding had all bamboo plate ware, including these adorable bowls. These eco-friendly plates when discarded will biodegrade quickly, thereby serving as compost for growing plants.
The wedding industry has a lot of waste and as a wedding planner I want to be more conscious on advising clients and vendors on being more earth friendly in our practices.
It's Earth Day today! Climate Change Action doesn't need governments spending billions. We take charge. Our one chance to save the planet is in our hands. These are small and easy steps we can all take!
If you have more eco-friendly ideas, do share with us in the comments below!
Did you know that furniture is last on the list of household goods to be recycled – making up a total of 9.8 million tons (yes, tons!) of waste per year? Restoration of furniture can help lessen that staggering statistic. #fibrenew#earthday#restoration#recycling#ecofriendly

If you are like me (Fabiana), you can't leave home without lip balm in your bag. The feeling of dry lips without lip balm on hand is a recipe for disaster.
Ever since I started oil pulling I've noticed an unexpected benefit. It never occurred to me that a practice that was meant to cleanse toxins out of my mouth would also have the side effect of healing my constantly cracked lips. Every morning when I'm done with the practice I have this amazing feeling of moisturized and smooth lips that lasts throughout the morning, and day. If you want to test this out I invite you to try it yourself!
On a different note, shout out to EARTH today. We are grateful for it's strength, its energy, its power to sustain us all on it no matter what. Happy Earth Day!
Segundo a @earthdaynetwork, o tema do Dia da Terra em 2019 é a "proteção das nossas espécies". Para o ano, esta data completará 50 anos! É óbvio que não podemos pensar em proteger apenas as espécies que gostamos porque vimos naquela visita escolar a um parque nacional ou que nós dependemos para sobreviver. Devemos proteger todas elas, porque, no fim, esta é a única forma de prevenir extinções. 🐟🐛🐜🐍🕷🐄🐖🐈🐕 🐝 A morte de abelhas, por exemplo, é temática pouco debatida ou refletida, mas estas são responsáveis pela polinização de mais de 70% das plantas cultivadas para alimentação, principalmente frutas e verduras. A sua morte coloca em risco a agricultura e, consequentemente, a própria segurança alimentar. Sem elas, o ser humano enfrentaria uma mudança drástica na sua dieta, que ficaria restrita apenas a culturas autopolinizáveis, como feijão, arroz, soja, milho, batata e espécies de cereais.
Formas de ajudar com este processo: reduzir o consumo de água, energia, plástico ou de produtos que não são eco-friendly; tentar unir-se à iniciativas que visem melhorar questões ambientais na tua área (já viste o nosso programa de embaixadores?); e tentar compreender as origens de tudo o que consomes na tua vida. 😌

This year, the theme for earth day is protection of species. We continue to destroy habitat for these species with our demand for natural resources, palm oil, meat, big fancy shopping malls etc. We are depleting the worlds resources at unprecedented rates. So what can we do? - Prevent Ocean Pollution. Say no to single use plastic! 🌊
- Plant a garden for your bees 🐝 - Stop using pesticides 🌼
- Practice a plant based diet 🥗
- Encourage political leaders in your riding to take affirmative action 📝
- Talk about what’s going on with your friends, family, coworkers, neighbours - awareness will take us a lot further than we think! 🗣
Reposted from @elohorsama - Happy Earth Day- EcoPrO
Somewhere in Nigeria not far from our city-Lagos there’s a community where a mortuary, school and a market are clustered within.
The mortuary is not modern and poor power supply so the freezing system doesn’t work properly.
It is an old structure with defects and broken walls all over.
It is so bad that when it rains everywhere gets flooded because of the blocked drainage system. The water floods the building and washes the corpses in the mortuary before it recede back to the ground.
At night, rats in the community go into the mortuary to feed from the corpses, rob the bodies, move to the market to eat part of the fishes, turkey and chicken that got defrosted during the period of power outage (long enough to defrost the refrigerator) and then climb the garri that was left in the market place. Remember that Market women don't take their goods home at the close of market day.
Once the market closes, rats find their way into shops again for shopping spree. When we come to the market the next day, we taste the garri that these rats have walked on and probably peed on, remember they had visited the mortuary over the night as well. A lot of us are consuming the same garri transported to Lagos. (Lassa fever is possible)
On the other hand, the flood water that later goes back to the ground channels it’s way to the school well where school kids drink water from. Meaning the kids are directly using water from the mortuary.
My friends, if you are seeing rats in your neighborhood here in Lagos it’s because of the bad drainage system and dirty environment.
The Ecopro initiative is here to sensitize, sanitize, beautify and promote safe living in our communities. We implore everyone to take this seriously and watch out for wastes that are not properly disposed. It comes back to hunt us.
We can volunteer to this cause. Our aim is to keep our family, friends and general ecosystems safe. Let us engage in cleaning their immediate communities.. It's tomorrow, 3pm, Elegushi beach.. #fathershousefoundation#environment#aqua#giveback#community # #volunteer#climatechange#ecofriendly#earthday#justdoit ✔️ #ecosystem
It's Earth Day!! 🌏🌿
There are lots of little things we can do to celebrate and help save the Earth.
Starting with these :
1. Plant something. Trees, your own fruits or veggies.
2. Start a compost garden.
4. Use trendy reusable bags, instead of buying some plastic bag when you go to the store. You’ll not only be stylish but eco-friendly too!!
5. Lights out!! Turn off all unnecessary electric appliances. Light some candles.
Happy 🌎 Earth Day!
I have to share my new favorite 🙌🏼 cookbook by @coconutbowls ! After a long wait I finally received it along with my 🥥 coconut bowls. Not only are they fair trade, but they are eco-friendly as well.
Oh yea, each 🥥 is hand picked and cut, shaped, polished and sanded. No coconut bowl is the same, which I think is pretty rad.
In honor if our mother 🌎this week I’m picking a new recipe each day to highlight!.
Wana contribute??? Head over to @coconutbowls and ✔️ out how you can make a difference in the lives of those farmers who are less fortune.
TIP 15: why purchase one-use plastic water bottles if US and Canadian tap water has been proven to be clean, taste better, and cause less environmental damage. you can quickly google search the water quality in your area to be sure! 💧 #thesustainabilitypack

Nature is the ultimate muse, and on this Earth Day I wanted to share a little bit about how we do everything we can at Swell Press to keep her beautiful.
Did you know…
🌳 Our letterpress paper is tree-free, and made from 100% cotton, manufactured from cotton linters, which are a by-product of the textile industry. 🌲 We plant a tree for every wedding project or branding suite we do- last year, we planted 150, and this year it looks like it will be almost double that! 🍃 We’re a carbon-neutral company. This means we’re aiming for a net zero carbon footprint by carbon offsetting. ♻️ We try to reuse everything we can in the studio- we even collect our paper scraps to donate to local schools or to be made into handmade paper (it’s true- if you live in LA, email us and we’ll set aside a box for you!) Happy #earthday !

In honor of #EarthDay , we visited Westmoreland Upper Elementary School in upstate NY where students were learning easy ways to help the planet, including looking for energy-efficient #ENERGYSTAR certified products.
What are some things you suggest we can do to support the Earth?
