In recognition of this important day, we hope that you enjoy these inspiring Earth Day 2016 posters, handmade by a few amazing world-changers of The Wellness Universe.
April 22nd each year marks a very special event; Earth Day. The purpose of this event is to get everyone involved no matter what area you live in and do something positive for this Earth that we all share. The hope is that we all continue this practice every day, not just on Earth Day. The very first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22nd, 1970 where 20 million people gathered in the streets of America to protest the industrial revolution; an environmental movement was born as a result. Although Earth Day originated in the United States, it became world-recognized by the 1990s.
There are several ways each of us can get involved in this very important campaign. Some of the more popular ways to participate are getting the whole family involved by heading outside with garbage bags to pick up litter, planting new trees, cleaning up beaches and coral reefs, signing environmental related petitions, and making plans to create a better future for our planet.
Members of The Wellness Universe are getting involved, and we ask everyone reading this to do the same. Please visit our Facebook Page and post pictures of what you are doing personally to spread awareness about Earth Day. Don\’t forget to use the hashtags #EarthDay or #EarthDay2016 so others can see how they can participate too.
Please take a moment to enjoy the top Earth Day 2016 posters by some of our members below. Our hopes are that they will spark some inspiration in all of you and encourage you to take action today, and every day thereafter.
A Poem By Susanne Heaton, “If I Were a Tree”
If I were a tree, just for the day,
Would my perspective change on what humans say?
Mankind states nature is wild and free,
But is that what I would discover and what I would see?
I would find root systems that communicate things,
And perhaps observe people as the wild beings.
I’d witness them breathing in what I breathe out,
And know we were connected without any doubt.
I’d notice nature living in complete harmony,
While plenty of humans couldn’t see this reality.
I’d weep as some would throw trash on the ground,
Shocked by their disconnection to the beauty around.
Others would dump into streams what they wouldn’t drink,
I’d scratch my head, wondering, “Don’t these people think?”
I would see and hear wildlife above and below,
And listen for the messages that they would bestow.
I would learn that many humans have lost this connection,
And be disappointed by their lack of wilderness protection.
If I were a tree, just for the day,
My perspective would change on what humans say.
