What does Earth Day have to do with Tarot? Nothing I can think of, but I wanted to honor Earth Day in my blog. So, there you have it. I think that every day should be Earth Day, but I remember when we didn’t even have one day; before people recycled anything or gave a second thought to the black, noxious gasses spewing from stacks all over the industrialized world – or from our own tailpipes. I’m happy that today recycling is easy to do.
Go here for a lovely article on the old adage, reduce, reuse, recycle. In the meantime, here’s my pared down interpretation:
Reuse: Sort of a corollary to Reduce; Use less new stuff.
Recycle: You know what this means. This one’s good for the economy, too.
Some Materials Are Better Than Others
Dispose of unwanted items consciously. Things such as thermometers and some light bulbs (contain mercury), batteries, electronics are bad for landfills. Fire extinguishers, aerosol cans, paint are also bad. Surf the internet to find the earth-friendliest ways to get rid of these things.
So, go forth and hug a tree, run barefoot through the grass, or full-out naked in a pond. Enjoy the natural world. Love it, honor it, respect it. Happy Earth Day one and all!
