“If we are ever to halt climate change and conserve land, water and other resources, not to mention reduce animal suffering, we must celebrate Earth Day every day - at every meal.”🚫🌏🔥

Today, April 22nd is Earth day. But you know what, everyday should be earth day. We live on such a beautiful planet. A planet that makes this beautiful cherry blossom scene possible. I sometimes can not believe how crazy nature can be.
Unfortunately our world is suffering greatly due to climate change and cherry blossoms are also being affected. In order for cherry blossoms to bloom they must go into a period of resting as cherry blossom trees are very sensitive to temperature.
In recent years climate change has been effecting cherry blossom season here in japan. This year we experienced warm weather in March and cold temperatures in April, causing the trees to bloom in unusually patterns. There was also a report how some trees bloomed late last year (a whole 6 months before). If we don’t all act quickly and change our ways we may see these beautiful trees suffer even more.
As a local it breaks my heart to know something this beautiful can be lost as well if we don’t change. It’s not only Japan, it’s everywhere. There are so many different ways we can be making a difference. Even the small things count. Be the change🌸🌏♥️ #whpplanetearth
