Earth Day Anniversary, 2010
April 22 marks Earth Day’s 40th anniversary. At EcoSmart Products we were talking about the nature of this day and the thinking it inspires. It’s a day that transcends national borders, yet finds expression in local communities. It calls for preservation of nature, yet urges us to use technology. It requires a united vision, yet depends on a diversity of actions. It is the complex challenge of our times, yet it draws on ancient wisdom and attitudes. The Earth Day call to action reminds me of Einstein’s observation, one of my favourite quotations: “The significant problems we face cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them.” Good luck with any Earth Day activities you may be planning!
