So today is Earth Day. What does this have to do with natural health? Everything. The purpose of Earth Day is to focus on establishing more sustainable and healthy habits around the globe. Over 1 billion people will celebrate Earth Day today, an event that began in 1970 and has grown to become the largest non-religious holiday in the world.
Earth Day is a time to reflect on our unhealthy habits and focus on change – a New Years of sorts for green living. The various campaigns around the world will focus on greening our schools, providing clean water to everyone around the globe and to reduce the harmful pollutants that contribute to illness and many of our modern “epidemics” – all factors that directly (and dramatically) impact our health.
To celebrate Earth Day at Vintage Remedies, we are giving away a set of two of our most popular books, The Handbook of Vintage Remedies and the (pre-release!) Vintage Remedies Guide to Real Food. Both resources provide numerous tips and ideas for implementing more natural and sustainable habits in your home that can directly impact your family’s health – and that of future generations.
To enter, leave us a comment below this post letting us know what new healthy habits your family is establishing this year.
