Happy Earth Day GASRians, from all the staff to you!
Earth day is one of the largest secular holidays in the world, it is estimated that over a billion people take part in Earth Day activities all across the globe. It is a day designed to promote appreciation of Earth's environment and awareness of the issues that threaten it.
Earth Day was founded in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson, who was determined to convince people that the planet was at risk. On April 22nd of that same year millions of people took to the streets to protest the negative impacts of 150 years of industrial development. Since 1970, Earth Day celebrations have grown exponentially, it’s created awareness all around to help solve issues such as climate change, plastic pollution, and help save endangered species. Celebrating Earth Day is a day to broaden, educate, and activate the environmental movement across the globe.
Everyone who participated in the Drawing Section and the Experiences Section will receive one these badges (badge dependant on the section):

So, I hope this is ok for the writing portion of the event. It's not a poem but just little ways that I have tried to make a difference to how I live to be nicer to the planet. Hopefully people can see some changes that they can incorporate into their own lives and I can learn some tricks from others!

 

I became more environmentally aware towards the end of last year, before this I'd always been quite ignorant and insistant that there was no point in changing the way I did things because I was just one person. However, then I realised if everyone thought like that then nothing would ever change, so I started making small changes to my lifestyle. These are not huge changes at all, but stuff that was easy for me to change and kind of ridiculous for me to be doing in the first place.

- I now have a reusable water bottle and coffee flask that I take everywhere. This stops me buying plastic water bottles and coffee cups that cannot always be recycled. I also stopped using straws.

- I also have a few reusable shopping bags that I use for all of my shopping instead of using the store's bags.

- I've tried to decrease my meat intake. I did attempt to become vegetarian but I failed. So now, I try to only eat a meal containing beef once per week.

- When driving, if the car is stopped for what is going to be a considerable amount of time, I turn off the engine. If I'm stuck in traffic, I'll turn off the engine. 

- I have always recycled but I try to be consistently recycling. I check the packaging of products to see what can and can't be recycled and if I'm out and there is no recycle bin, I'll take my rubbish home with me to recycle. 

- I wash my clothes on the cold setting on the washing machine, and don't use a dryer to dry them.

- I don't leave any electrical appliances on standby and make sure that if I'm not using something, it's off.

- I'm a teacher and I try to encourage the children that I teach to also make small changes to their lives, and we have a system where children are rewarded for walking to school. 

 

Not a lot like I said, but if everyone made lots of small differences it'd equate to one big difference.
