How Birds Celebrate Earth Day
First, let’s recognize that birds celebrate Earth Day every day.
As a result, Nature functions as a successful democracy.
First, everyone votes (from amoebas to zebras).
And then Nature thrives because everyone votes for the same option: A sustainable environment.
So how do they vote?
Easy: They vote with the actions that they take.
This matters because their actions add up to become their life, their legacy, and their future.
So birds are celebrating this Earth Day by setting three examples.
1️⃣ They will avoid single-use plastic bottles.
Specifically, they will drink water from natural sources, such as ponds, streams, and lakes.
You Can: Drink water from reusable bottles instead of buying water in plastic bottles.
2️⃣ They will conserve energy.
Specifically, they will not flap their wings for minutes before flying or keep them flapping long after they land. And no bird will flap its wings while eating a meal, taking a nap, or talking on its cell phone.
You Can: Save money (lots of it) by starting your car’s engine after you fasten your seat belt, turning off the engine as soon as you park, and (of course) driving less.
3️⃣ They will eat smart.
Specifically, they will eat the foods that their bodies need to stay healthy.
You Can: Buy organic foods. And avoid junk foods, fast foods, and other concoctions of chemicals that confuse your body.
One more point: I’m sure you realize that you also vote with the choices that you make every day.
Then these choices add up to become the society you live in, the history you leave, and the future for humanity.
So you too can celebrate Earth Day every day by making good choices.
