A Week of Zero Waste DIY Challenge: Beauty Edition. Sunday, Day 7: Rest, Celebrate and Mourn Earth Day

Do It Yourself, DIY. I couldn’t think of a more perfect ending for A Week of Zero Waste DIY Challenge. Day 7, Rest, Celebrate and Mourn Earth Day. I think in todays American society, the Average Joe (just saw Dodgeball last night) wants everyone else to fix the world problems. In all reality they won’t be done unless you…


I could make an aesthetically pleasing and call to action list about the 10 best things to do for Earth day, but I’m not going to. I’m telling you to DIY. Do your part in enlightening yourself and others with worldly issues. One, particularly on this day; the environment. Don’t just plant a tree today and call it good. Start a practice, take action, switch out a routine, have continual growth of knowledge and awareness, especially for the environment. But also…Rest, Celebrate and Mourn.

A Week of Zero Waste DIY Challenge. That’s awesome. That is something you can say you accomplished. I can say I accomplished. Give yourself a pat on the back for trying and moving towards a better way of life. Give your body, mind and soul a rest of the chaos of life and pursuit of perfection in your own eyes. Enjoy this earth, celebrate it, take it in, honor it’s beauty. Mourn what you need to for the sake of the earth: plastic littered, destroyed glaciers, deforestation, air pollution, TRASH. But know that Jesus will renew everything and there is hope in that. Enjoy the day, I’m going to.

  1. Hi Kelly,

    It’s taken me far too long to let you know how much I appreciate your blog. Thanks so much for putting yourself out there and trying to enlighten the rest of us about earth-friendly practices. Bruce and I have been moving slowly in this direction, but there’s so much more we can do. Keep fighting the good fight and hang in there, girl!
