Things are completely overwhelming these days. Any time you open your laptop, there are 45 petitions, 3 protests and 18 immediate actions you need to take to keep the world spinning. I don't think I'm the only one that is exhausted just trying to figure out how to get it all done, plus my normal full time job and some fun in life. Each week, I made a deal with myself to try three different things to make a positive difference and I will share them here so you have someplace to start. This will include actions you can take, non profits to learn about and support, articles or books to read, stores to shop at or maybe just happy stories to help inspire. If you have any, email them my way and I'll be happy to share them in a future week.
Happy Tuesday! So many things happening in April to get out there and take action and I'm so fired up.
1. Get out there and join one of the two big marches this month. There are lots of cities and groups participating so you'll be able to find a way to join in for at least one of the days.
- Click here for info on the March for Science on Earth Day April 22 throughout the country.
- Click here for info on the Climate March on the following Saturday April 29 in DC and smaller communities.
2. Get some swag to let everyone know that you are on the side of science. These are a few of our favorites on Amazon right now (click on the shirts to shop.)
3. Calculate your carbon footprint and be aware of the changes you can make. SMALL THINGS ADD UP and everyone needs to start somewhere. There are a few websites that will help you. The EPA has a carbon calculator here and Nature.org also has one that goes in a little more depth here. When you google it, you can find tons. We are going to share some of the changes we are making to our daily routine to cut down in the next few weeks.
Let me know what you're doing this month to get more involved.
