Day 7 Of Finding Empathy.

It's hard to understand what is happening to our planet earth. From the melting polar ice caps to the last male northern white rhino, changes are happening around us. One of the hardest things to notice is the planet's breathtaking beaches covered in microplastic. Add in multiple patches of plastic bits the size of Texas floating in our once pristine oceans and it's apparent we have done some real damage to our environment. The plastic we discard so quickly won't potentially decompose for 450 years. Look at this chart on "How Long Does It Take For Trash To Decompose."

Yikes.

Gulp.

Who else feels bad about the way we have treated planet earth?

When did we put personal convenience over the health of the planet? Our morning disposable takeaway coffee cup with a plastic lid seems downright stupid now, or the bottle of water grabbed from the grocery store because we couldn't wait to get home seems silly.

When I was a kid, the idea of bottled water seemed ludicrous. Why would anyone bottle water? Water fountains were everywhere! Plus, mom said it was ok to be thirsty for a couple of hours. We wouldn't die.

So what the happened in the last thirty years?

When did we put convenience over sensibility?

When did we lose empathy for our planet?

It's wonderous and beautiful. Let's be beautiful too.

Today and tomorrow, in honor of Earth Day, let's take time to recycle a few plastic bits from our neighborhood or use a reusable cup coffee cup. More importantly, let's make small decisions every day that lead to a better planet tomorrow.

Until soon friends.
