The future home of our children and grandchildren, our bountiful earth, entrusted to us by God, is struggling. We are not being good stewards. The evidence is all around us if only we will open our eyes.
Jane Goodall says “The intellect does not destroy their own home.”
All we can do as individuals is all we can do, but every little bit, together can accomplish much, even right here at home. My Mother always said “many hands make light work.”
It’s all a matter of little things, such as not buying water in plastic bottles or carrying your purchases out of stores in plastic bags. Don’t you see all the plastic bags shredded in our Wyoming wind, hanging on our fences? How about picking up your broken fishing line and empty worm containers after a day of fishing or picking up your empty spent shotgun shells after game bird hunting. These little actions are drops in the bucket, you say; that it won’t matter. Well all those drops in the bucket can eventually fill Lake Powell.
On this Earth Day, think about what little changes you can make in your daily life, that can make a difference for the earth and our children and grandchildren over their lifetime. Do a little something good every day so that they will continue to enjoy all the beauty and riches that God has provided us for our enjoyment in our life.
And as a reminder, Powell Valley Recycling relies on the willingness of people, and that means all of us, to do more with their trash than just throw it all away and fill our landfills.
