This Earthday we'd like to celebrate the growing arm of green consciousness, which has surprised many with its infectious reach, and the successful reintroduction of natural consciousness to a world society in dire need of reconnection with roots.
For valuable Earthday activities consider the value of seed bombing (mud and heirloom/organic/Non-GMO seed balls made for throwing in vacant lots), reducing your plastic usage (cloth totes are much less expensive- Shampoo bars are fun and environmentally ethical, etc), and taking steps to ease oneself a bit more off-grid (Window gardens and Compost toilets make it easier).
Ultraviolet Underground hopes you'll enjoy the following links below, and additional intel in Purple Magazine's Issue 7, currently en route (available Friday).
Shine bright greenies *_^
Not so into digging into soil with a window garden?
Aerogarden.com's hydroponic indoor garden grows fresh veggies
and items of your choice at home, with ease.
Make the most of offgrid efforts with a composting toilet.
Whether you choose a waterless or water-based model,
the energy saved, and value to nature/gardens is incredible.
They're also much less expensive than you might think.
Visit www.compostingtoilet.org for more information.
Shampoo bars are fun, get the job done in an environmentally ethical fashion,
and aren't nearly as expensive as you might think. Visit etsy's selection of vegan soapers for options currently available to you.
Meat and dairy production contribute to much pollution of the ground water we and our animal friends need to survive, because the meat/dairy industry over-produces animals that wouldn't be here in those numbers otherwise whose waste is a problem for the environment, and whose methane contributes to off the charts carbon emissions (more than all of our cars combined).
Most importantly though, the cruel practices used in the meat and dairy --- industry that most don't know about--- are soulless, and shouldn't receive support from anyone. More information at Goveg.com (watch the video, but not with extra little ones in the room, it's that bad).
