Creative Journal #1 ESCI

Creative Journal Blog #1 – Keep Our Earth Clean!

In the pictures you find below is my visual representation of a time I felt connected to the environment. Last summer, I was out in Nelson B.C. visiting a few of my friends. One day we decided to go on a hike in the mountains and I found this Gatorade bottle, like the one I show in my pictures, laying on the ground. I picked it up and placed it in my backpack. This recent memory made me feel really connected to the environment because I felt I was doing a good deed and helping protect the environment from waste. The little things count. I know it is a very small gesture but the Earth is our home and we have to keep it clean and we have to find proper ways of disposing or recycling our garbage and use our resources wisely. We can’t destroy Earth we have to work with it and respect it. What you do with the resources now can affect the future. The environment to me means home, so we need to treat it right and respect it and by doing that we can do things as little as picking up one piece of recycling like I did or else we are going to leave a huge mess for future generation. A clean future is the right future.

As Kimmerer speaks in her recent chapter we just read, she mentions and talks about how the world is a gift. As humans, whenever we receive a gift we treat it with respect and we are thankful for it. By doing things like keeping the environment clean and recycling are types of ways we show that we treat our world and environment as a gift.

  1. Hey Ben,

    That was really great, I felt that it was really easy to connect to your blog post. You are absolutely right the little things do MATTER! That doing that simple deed is a great start for you and the environment to have. You respect the Earth in a simple way. I’m curious if there is anything you do bigger for the Earth/ environment? I would love to hear about that! The world is a gift and we should treat it with respect and try our best to take care of it. We should be looking out for the future generations rather then just focusing on ourselves in the present. Great blog Ben!
