Earth Week continues

I hope you all did something to celebrate your empathy toward the earth and all living creatures for Earth Day and had lots of fun doing it.

If not, hey, it’s cool—because it’s Earth Week! And if you read this late, well, fear not! This is about celebrating Earth Day daily, weekly, monthly, yearly—constantly doing things green.

Even if you can’t attend any events for Earth Week, skim some events for inspiration. Maybe you can join an activist group to organize beach clean-ups, for instance.

Eco events taking place this week throughout the U.S.:
Many colleges are organizing events this week, such as
DePauw University, IN
Ithaca College in NY
Berkeley and USC in CA
University of Wisconsin Oshkosh
University of Houston, TX
University of Iowa

If you live in Charlottesville, Virginia, check out local events such as critical mass (Sunday 26, 12:30pm) at earthweek.org.

Also:
Denver, CO
Western NY

Canada: Ontario

Corning Community College in NY showed the animated movie Ferngully: The Last Rainforest (see trailer) today.  If you haven’t seen it, it’s a charming film about a human male who chops down trees for a living suddenly shrinking and becoming part of a village of tiny, beautiful creatures that live harmoniously in the forest. That is, the forest the guy was helping chop down. It’s very sweet and wonderful for kids. I highly recommend it.

Whether it’s to meet new people and join forces or to take a moment to nourish yourself and the planet some other way, I hope we all take advantage of the awareness raising to continue on our path to sustainable living.
