Weekend links and happy Earth Day!

Today we celebrate Earth Day. To be honest, this particular day doesn’t mean that much to me since I try to care for creation every day. 🙂 But it’s nice to see the mainstream culture stop to think about our planet a bit more this time of year.

I personally am excited to see my favorite environmental charity being featured on the 58 Global Tour. If you are looking for a way to contribute to a great cause this Earth Day, you might consider sponsoring a village or helping Plant with Purpose plant some trees.

And for your reading pleasure, here are some inspiring reads:

  1. I like the link for the friendship bracelet. I used to make these all the time when I was younger 🙂 🙂 I even have a book on friendship bracelets that I purchased while living in Germany. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather 🙂
