Earth Day Tips



With Earth Day only 3 Days away it gives you the perfect reason to start changing little things you do to make the world a little more green. Unless you’re very motivated and have unlimited supplies and resources, changing your lifestyle can be a difficult process. Not because living green in difficult, but because it is a time devotional, as well as mentally devotional task.

People are creatures of habit…even bad ones. It’s time to break the cycle and start fresh, and Earth Day (April 22, 2012) is the perfect day to begin. Here are a few simple tips you can try everyday to help you stay on the path of organic and natural living.

· Ditch the Detergent and try eSutras Organics Soapnuts Kit. It comes with natural Drupes, which are Soapnuts and contain saponins which are a natural surfactant. Re-usable and has no harmful chemicals like nearly all detergents you find in the grocery store.

· Carpool or take public transportation. Transmission emissions, gasoline, and traffic should be 3 top reasons you wouldn’t want to drive. Lots of cities offer affordable transportation so take advantage. If public transportation seems a bit daunting, try to cut back on your carbon footprint and carpool with a friend or co-worker.

· Make a delicious and organic meal, but don’t use the stove. Try one of eSutras Organics Monday Recipes. We always feature a delicious and organic recipes like our Spring Slaw (Skip the sautéing direction!) or Healthy Lunch Salad. A tasty and environmentally sound choice.

· Turn off any electronics and play a board game or go for a walk in the park. Its spring, which means the weather is at its best for a stroll, outdoor concert, or bike ride. Turn off the television and get out there and put your body in motion!

Mother Earth, Mother Nature, We the Children & Easter

Did you know the first Greek God was actually a Goddess?. he is Gaia, or Mother Earth, who created herself out of primordial chaos. From her fertile womb all life sprang, and unto Mother Earth all living things must return after their allotted span of life is over. Gaia, as Mother Nature, personifies the entire ecosystem of Planet Earth. 
Mother Nature is always working to achieve and maintain harmony, wholeness and balance within the environment. Mother Nature heals, nurtures and supports all life on this planet, and ultimately all life and health depend on Her. In time, Nature heals all ills.
The way of Mother Gaia is the passive, feminine, Yin way of healing. All we need to do to regain our health is to return to the bosom of Mother Nature and live in accordance with Her laws.
The Gaia archetype underlies all notions of the Nature Cure. Mother Nature is a healing goddess for the ancients whose glory was celebrated each spring, long before organized religion came into play.
