“Remember, you’re not a visitor here. The Earth is your return address in the Universe. You are a citizen of the interconnected mesh of life on Earth, beautiful and complex; and billions of years in the making.” - @tamaralevitt @calm
Instead of going and doing, today I decided to focus on BEING and SEEING. I made it my mission to #gooutside
and take in the sights, sounds, and smells of my portion of our planet. And what did I see? Beautiful blue sky, bunnies, birds, friendly neighbors, and...trash. What you see here is what I was able to *safely* collect. #nofilter
Lots of #plastic
bags (including the big blue one that I used for collection), wrappers, and Nerf gun bullets. And no, your eyes are not deceiving you: That small black bag on the left contains someone’s dog’s poop. #gross
There are receptacles all around my community for this; but apparently that’s not good enough for some people. As citizens of this planet, we’ve got to do better. Where else are we going to live? 💚🌎🙏🏾 How are you spending Earth Day?
