Re: How we humans can celebrate Earth Day 2019, and everyday thereafter and make our Earth a better place, now and forever, to live on. For ALL of us and especially for for our children and grandchildren and for generations to come:
Take the Earth Day Pledge. Add to it. Do it.
Be true to your promises/pledge.
No Acts of Congress Needed! (For us anyway, but remind those we elect to demand a cleaner world from the corporations and governments WE patronize and finance.)
-Pledge by Humans on Planet Earth on Earth Day, 2019-
-Drive less. Carpool, take public transit, bike, walk, telecommute.
-Use little or no more plastic. No straws. No plastic packaging nor plastic bags. Nada. Zip. Recyclable, Reusable only. And insist the stores and people you buy from please do so too. Sea life and birds and the kids will thank you. So will Mother Earth.
-Insulate your home(s) better. And insist all our public and private buildings also have the best and latest energy saving insulation and devices.
-Drive vehicles that pollute less, use less gasoline or diesel and simply, drive less. Pool your errands with your family and others. Save our air and water and your money.
-Plant trees and shrubs.
-Grow gardens. Mow LESS!
-Unplug and turn off appliances you are not really using.
-Spread the Word: Leave our children, grandchildren and posterity - and wildlife and flora and fauna a better Earth than when you arrived.
-Tell the people and companies you buy from you expect them to follow your example.
