Earth Day Gifts / February 24, 2019 / Gladys Hayden
Mainstream Americans talked about recycling and conservation. In the 1980 s many people recycled within their neighborhood recycling programs. People s awareness of their ecological responsibility became part of their lives and actions. Children learned the importance of taking care of their environment; they were taught to care for the earth and its animals. The iconic Smokey Bear (originated in the mid 1940 s) featured poster slogans like "If not you who?" and "Only you can prevent forest fires. We can t." Americans seemed to step-up to their roles as Earth trustees. In the 1990 s recycling programs reduced overall waste by twenty percent. With people and government taking responsibility companies followed suit.
Indian citizens being no exception they accept the convenience offered by market dynamics and on-market abundance of Mother s Day gifts. Thus this day on 2nd Sunday of May is celebrated in households around the country. This year Mother s Day has fallen on 9th May 2010. Mothers and motherhood without any doubt deserve the most profound respect and reverence. Mothers bring us to earth suffer to give birth to us and suffer to bring us up. Mothers always act selflessly to protect and upkeep their children and mothers ensure continued existence of the human race. Every religion upon earth and every culture worships mothers and motherhood.
It is a relationship promoting holiday that can be celebrated by making a difference. Organizing an event changing a habit or launching a community garden can all be on the agenda of celebrating Earth Day. Bringing people together with mutual interests is typical of the earth element. Protecting the environment is now a priority among the many issues of global concerns. On a small scale we can look at the microcosm of family life with genuine goals of adjusting bad habits toward better practices in the usage of measurable resources. Our carbon footprint is not just an abstract concept but a very real and measurable entity.
