“There is hope if people will begin to awaken that spiritual part of themselves, that heartfelt knowledge that we are caretakers of this planet.“ ~Brooke Medicine Eagle
Growing up in “The Land Of 10,000 Lakes”, I’ve always been aware of the beauty of nature. I suppose it helped having a father who studied forestry at the University of Minnesota.
My dad loved the outdoors and nature. He also loved sports, fishing, hunting etc… but with a great respect for what he was taking and leaving behind. I think that’s what gave me my respect for our environment.
I think it is also a part of my passion for re-purposing. We have so much, yet we are always looking for the next new thing, ready to discard the old.
So in honor of my father and in respect of this wonderful planet, and all the creatures on it, I am giving 15% of my Etsy sales, from 4/22/11 to 4/22/12 to the World Wildlife Fund.
Happy Earth Day everyone! ….. remember to take some time to enjoy this beautiful planet!
"It is good to realize that if love and peace can prevail on earth, and if we can teach our children to honor nature's gifts, the joys and beauties of the outdoors will be here forever." ~Jimmy Carter
