Earth Day 2021 is just around the corner. Every year since 1970, we’ve been celebrating Earth Day on April 22nd. According to earthday.org, every year, 1 billion people around the globe are mobilized to take some action to save the planet by discussing climate change, calling for sustainable energy use and waste management, and promoting and switching to environmental products.
But, if the action would happen only on April 22nd, would it have a chance to have much impact on the future of the planet?
Change does indeed start with every single action, but it must remain a sustained action. Using a sustainable straw once won’t make any dents in our plastic use, but switching to using only such straws for life definitely will. Planting a tree on Earth Day is a nice symbolic gesture, but it will be even more productive to plant a veggie garden in one’s backyard or to switch the front yard landscaping to a water-wise bed or xeriscape.
The switch to sustainable consumption must also be sustained long-term. It must become a habit, rather than a once-in-a-while act of conscience.
We, humans, are really greedy when it comes to earth’s resources. We want more, more, and still more. More energy from the earth’s limited resources, more food, more water, more land to grow and build.
All of this might seem to serve humans pretty well. But, we know that the benefits are short-lived. The planet’s resources are not limitless. There is not an unlimited amount of space, fuel, water.
