Montana: a reminder to make Earth Day every day

It’s a balmy, sunny Earth Day in Montana. No weather drama today (yet). Earth Day sort of feels like New Year’s – resolving to make changes to nurture the planet vs. destroy it. While I love what dedicating a day to this does for the collective consciousness, I also love the idea of it being an ongoing project. Like how we should aim to make positive changes in our lives more than once a year. I have a grocery sack that has these words printed on it: Earth Day every day. I’m a big believer in lots of little things adding up to be big. I’ve got two books that I revisit often for inspiration: the little gem 1,001 Ways to Save the Earth and Thomas Freidman’s Hot Flat and Crowded.

Living in Montana has made me more aware of our impact on our home planet; I’m reminded every day of the need to preserve our beautiful surroundings. As an Earth Day tribute, I’m posting pictures of some of my fave places here that inspire me to make Earth Day every day, and that we hope inspire our retreat visitors to do the same. Happy Earth Day from one of the most beautiful places on the planet, in my humble opinion.
