Earth Day Gifts / February 23, 2019 / Francisca Mccarty
Earth Day Birthday provides the 20th century grassroots effort in reaching eco-friendly people and making an impact on the planet. Attending an Earth Day symposium would be tiring so people need some energy to keep up stay awake and energized to absorb the important matters that are being discussed in that said event. If you would notice organizers of such events are providing some food for people to munch in and it depends the time of the day if it would be apt for lunch snacks or dinner. But usually organizer is serving snacks like finger food and energy bars or anything that is related to the theme of the event while others rely on their sponsors for food.
A study in California showed an interesting consumer reaction. Electric bills featured along with the numbers a smiling face on below-average usage and a frowning face on above-average bills. After that simple nudge the heavy users made cuts in consumption while the light users remained frugal. The same could be done with water bills in drought-plagued areas and desert developments. Mother s Day in India is celebrated at homes with as much reverence and gusto as anywhere else in the world. In India as a secular nation mothers and mother goddesses have been worshiped for generations.
People in India have recognized motherhood and the power of motherhood in many religious forms including the form of traditional Hindu Goddesses. Especially in eastern and central parts of the country the worship of Durga or Kali or other forms of the Mother like Basanti or Jagaddhatri form principal social and religious occasions. Hindu festivals related to Mother worship are of a much greater magnitude than the worship of any male deity except the major deities like Shiva or Vishnu or major avatars of the Hindu pantheon like Rama or Krishna. It is interesting to note that among the Parvi community of Konkan and Mumbai regions of Western India there is an indigenous time-honored culture of celebrating Mother s Day in August.
