50 YEARS OF EARTH DAY

Happy Earth Day!

Let us give thanks for the world around us.
Thanks for all the creatures, stones and plants
Let us learn their lessons and seek their truths,
So that their path might be ours,
And we might live in harmony, a better life.
May the Earth continue to live,
May the heavens above continue to live,
May the rains continue to dampen the land,
May the wet forests continue to grow,
Then the flowers shall bloom
And we people shall live again.
—Hawaiian indigenous prayer

All week we've been sharing on Insta tips on how to care for our Mother Earth. Head there to share with us today.

Here are 14 Earth Day events you can join from your screen.
