Earth Day should be every day
April has snuck up on us and while we are so close to embracing a return to normalcy, we’re just not quite there yet.
It was a hard decision but for the second year in a row the Sisters of Providence have decided to cancel our annual Earth Day Festival & Craft Fair that would have been scheduled for Saturday, April 24. But although we may have canceled the event, we have not canceled what it stands for each year: Restore our Earth!
It can seem a bit daunting but there is still a path for us all to work together to heal our planet. When much of the world went into lockdown this past year, we saw countless stories of how changes in our behavior can positively impact our world for the better.
With this in mind, the team at the White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, a ministry of the Sisters of Providence, wanted to find ways to still celebrate our Earth. We rolled up our sleeves and came up with a plan to educate, demonstrate and showcase many ways we can all help make to a difference.
We invite you to take a journey with us during the month of April as we explore simple ways we can all heal our planet. Beginning Monday, April 5, we will be posting articles, videos and resources to give you hope and give you ideas on what you can do. Each week, we’ll focus on a new area starting with land and animals. To join the movement, go to our website for all the details.
