It's Earth Day Again

Tomorrow, the 22nd, is Earth Day. Following on from our recent post about Earth Hour, Thursday April the 22nd. will mark Earth Day, an annual event celebrated around the world as the greenest of holidays. Established in 1970, it was created to call attention to the environment.

Earth Day is always on April 22nd and is a day when the whole world can come together to celebrate the earth and try to build and make it a safer, healthier and cleaner world for everyone.

All people have to do to take part is do something that helps the earth in some way, that could be anything from organising a festival to litter picking to installing solar panels or changing your light bulbs to energy saving ones.

Buddhism is a religion that embodies the spirit of environmental protection. The sutras not only advocate loving our neighbours, they teach us to love our environment, too. The sutras say, “All living beings have Buddha-nature.” “All beings, sentient or not, have the same perfect wisdom.”
