Day 4: Understand You Are What You Eat - The Love Your Mother Earth Challenge to Ease Eco-Anxiety

It’s Day 4 of the Love Your Mother Earth Challenge from @onegreenthing. Today we’re focused on “Understand You are What You Eat.” How our food is grown and what we eat has a big impact on the environment. Your daily practice of sustainability can help ease eco-anxiety, bring more joy into your life, and shift the culture toward climate solutions.


Check out the post for ideas based on Service Superpower. If you don’t know yours, check out the Service Superpower (TM) Assessment to find your unique strengths in climate action.


We’re channeling on inner Spark today and sharing a favorite plant-based recipe with a friend. Reducing food waste, buying more plant-based options, and choosing organic are all powerful ways to do your part in climate action.


Remember - don’t fall for the idea of your individual climate footprint. That whole concept was created by PR execs from the fossil fuel industry to try to shift the burden of this crisis on you. That’s not what OneGreenThing is all about.


Your daily practice of sustainability isn’t about the math. It’s about CULTURE CHANGE.


We’re all powerful culture change agents in our families and communities. Your daily practice can ease eco-anxiety, increase joy, and shift the culture to the big climate solutions we need.


Here’s one of my favorites from Elise Museles - a sweet potato smoothie.

6 oz of a milk alternative

It’s a fantastic plant-based breakfast or snack. Be sure to follow @elisemuseles for more ideas and share your favorite plant-based recipes below. Keep joining using for the whole week and embrace your daily practice of sustainability. We CAN create a healthier, greener, more equitable future. We all need to get involved. Right now. Today.
