Heal the Earth, heal ourselves.
Heal ourselves, and we heal the Earth.
This thought has long passed through my mind, and I find it becoming truer the more I revisit it.
Reduce the amount of products you purchase and consume, and you live a simpler life, saving money and time while reducing the amount of waste you put into the environment.
Purchase healthy foods free of pesticides, insecticides, and fertilizers, and you prevent harsh toxins from entering your bodies and your land and waters.
Eat locally-grown foods and reduce your carbon footprint by cutting out transportation needs while giving yourself fresh, healthy foods that fuel and detoxify your body.
Eat only the amount of food your body needs to keep your body fit and healthy, and you avoid the over-taxation of Earth, taking just what you need and not more.
Avoid purchasing foods wrapped in plastics and single-use packaging, and you reduce your waste and the number of microplastics entering your waters and, in the future, your bloodstream.
Decrease your carbon emissions and air pollutants; help protect the Earth's atmosphere while protecting your lungs.
Care for your body and overall health, and you prevent the need for certain medications and medical procedures, all of which come with their own costs and associated wastes.
Spend time in nature, and you can reduce your blood pressure, decrease your stress levels, and feel happier.
What's good for you is good for the Earth.
By living our healthiest lives and taking the proper steps to care for our Earth through environmentally friendly actions, we not only heal the Earth, we health ourselves.
Take care of Mother Earth, and she will take care of you.
