If you’re anything like me, you’re constantly learning new information about creating greater harmony with our home planet. In a world where it is so easy and convenient to be part of the problem, it requires commitment, courage and accurate information to create solutions (and to silence the noise and misinformation that is so prevalent). For instance, did you know that less than 9% of the plastic that we sort and put in the proper bin actually gets recycled, or that transportation is the biggest CO2 problem (our driving)?
So, imagine taking an hour (well 73-minutes) to breathe in the wisdom of the individuals like you and I who have created fun and inspiring projects that are transforming their own communities – real-world examples. Most of our contributors have created beautiful videos of their work in action. Everything is presented with an element of earth gratitude because when we treasure something, we treat it differently. In other words, we'll enjoy learning about what is happening around the world, and should find a lot of aha! moments to embrace in our own lives.
I’m listing a little information about each one of the contributors below, as well as how to stream the celebration, watch free film screenings and download complimentary ebooks.
You can watch the celebration live at 7 pm PT on LiveFromEarth.net, or on our Facebook Page, https://www.facebook.com/EarthGratitude/. Our partners at Unify are also streaming live. If this time is inconvenient for you, simply go to https://www.youtube.com/@earthgratitude, where you can watch it any time you wish. Please share with your friends, family & followers as well.
There are many free sustainability resources on https://earthgratitude.org/, including a link to download the ebook The Power of 8 Billion: It’s Up to Us for free (in the U.S.). In other countries, the ebook is priced at less than $5. The Earth Gratitude project is honored to feature a community screening of Mission: Joy, and to provide a link to watch how Great Britain came together to plant over 3 million trees to honor the Platinum Jubilee of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II (narrated by Dame Judi Dench).
And here is more information on the visionaries and organizations featured in the 2023 online global Earth Gratitude celebration… I’m listing their Instagram handles to make it easy to like, share, follow and support their work. You’ll also see their website information on their featured segment. If you’re looking for a great way to honor Mother Nature this Earth Day weekend, consider donating your time, talent and/or money to one of these worthy projects.
