Purpose is the reason for which something or someone exist. In the above biblical passage, we see a list of purpose for mankind. As we celebrate Earth Month, our theme is “Replenish The Earth”. For us, replenishing the earth means to refresh the earth. Simply, what ever you take and/or use you should restore back.
When considering ways to replenish the earth, think of the Three R’s – Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.
Reduce – To cut back. Ex. You can save water by cutting down on the time you spend in the shower and not leaving water running in sink while brushing your teeth.
Reuse – To use again. Ex. Reusable water bottles are more eco-friendly and less expensive than purchasing traditional plastic water bottles.
Recycle – To undergo a process of renewal. Ex. You can save a tree by recycling paper products such as newspapers, magazines, and telephone directories.
This Earth Month, become more conscious about how your actions are affecting our planet. Think about what you can do to fulfill your purpose of replenishing the earth and reverse damages that have already been done. Happy Earth Month!
