In my Things for 2016 post I mentioned that I failed to do manicures for every Holiday in 2015 and that for this year I wanted to complete manicures for the major holidays. Today isn't exactly a major holiday but it's one that deserves a nail post anyway....Earth Day! Earth Day seems to be celebrated in a ton (100+) of countries but if you don't know about it it's just a day where you show support for environmental protection and can gain more awareness about how your lifestyle impacts the bigger global picture. I have to admit I am not the greenest person around and I really should try harder to minimize my waste and environmental impact. Today is a great day to do some research and figure out what I can do to help the Earth. I did my nails to look like this:
couple things to think about this Earth Day. For me, I was most interested in learning about water and water conservation. We all know water is difficult to get in some countries and we waste water by ignoring leaky faucets, leaving the water on while brushing our teeth/washing our faces, taking unnecessarily long showers, and inefficiently cleaning our clothes...but I didn't realize just how much water is wasted in creating the food I eat everyday! National Geographic can show you what your water footprint is, if you're interested. I can say I'll definitely be more conscious of my water usage during 2016.
