WOW! Climate change is really on my mind, and weighing on my heart right now. This past summer Mother Earth was yelling to get our attention. 🔥I still have some hope that we can turn it around and I want to share some really wonderful , hopeful things happening around the world that make my heart sing. Humans are amazing...we can adapt to anything and we can innovate. My hope is that this past summer has been a wake up call and the humans of the world (and their governments) unite to save our planet and ourselves. At the end of this list I also am going to list some of the ways that I live to do my small part. We can all pitch in!
The Greening of Ethiopia. Ethiopia has been earnestly planting trees for years now.
According to the UNEP " Under the country’s National Green Development Program—launched in May 2019 in a bid to combat climate change and environmental degradation—Ethiopia plans to plant 4 billion trees on 1.5 million hectares across the country: 40 trees per person."
The country set a world record of planting over 300 million trees on one day in May 2019. They are also working to restore water and greenery in parched land. Here is a video https://youtu.be/D9Ntr6ns44U.
Restoring water to India. A movement is happening in many parts of India that uses a combination of traditional technologies and permaculture techniques to restore water to dried up wells, crops and forests.Here are a couple of videos:
Isreal now creates a water surplus. They recycle 90% of their tap water and use it for agriculture and planting forests! They are actually exporting water to other countries.

Are you wondering what your carbon footprint is? Here is a calculator.
I have been attempting a zero waste lifestyle for years...but it is really hard.Have you ever tried to go plastic free, even for one day? It is almost impossible. I really hope we get it together and come up with a plastic alternative soon. But I was excited to see that I had a negative carbon footprint. It is mostly because I have an urban lifestyle (i live in an apartment and have no car) and I am a plant-based eater. Also the city I live in uses hydro power, not fossil fuel. Ironically , the number one worst thing you can do for the planet is....have a kid!😄
