Today marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. For us every day is earth day. As every hour is too as we strive to protect Earth #ouronlyhome.

The Coronavirus is a wake-up call to humanity to listen to the Earth, understand the fragility of all life, and act to take up the responsibility of looking after the only home we have. Ironically the microbial virus of Covid19 is already proving that mass changing of human behaviour is possible very fast. In the countries that are leading action to turn the tide against C-19, including Malta, the current changes in behaviour have already had an immediate impact on air quality, on sea, on animal and bird life, on marine life and human life. In only a matter of days and weeks we have decreased carbon emissions and fossil fuel consumption, along with other things needed for establishing a sustainable and better world. We are proving what we knew all along, that when the noise of commercial growth at any cost is removed, people begin to focus on other people and think about our home planet. And those things are the key to driving the positivity needed to make constructive changes in behaviour happen much faster. So, we can change the world. It is up to us.

Each one of us is a citizen of our planet and all our actions no matter how big or small count. Positive, destructive, regenerative.

Plant a tree, flick that switch off, walk a mile rather than drive, install a water purifier if you can (avoiding 100s of plastic bottles!), never ever litter, recycle what you do use, avoid buying useless stuff that only fuels the production of more useless stuff, and waste.
