Earth Day 2010

Earth Day is more than planting a tree, picking up trash or carpooling to work. Earth Day is a day to remind us of all the things we should be doing every day in order to preserve the planet for our generation and the generations that follow us. The future of our children and our children's children is being determined this very moment by the choices we make today. The five minutes your setting apart to read this post can effect the choices you make right now and in the future. If your wondering how you can help, start by visiting SEQL (Sustainable Environment for Quality of Life) website to find 100 ways you can make a difference.

Here are some other links to websites where you can find more information on Earth Day and how you can get involved:

I would also highly recommend watching the movie, Baraka, which means blessing in Arabic. The movie was filmed at 152 locations in 24 countries over many years and briefly shows the history of our world, our cultures, and the effect we are having on planet earth.
