If you're far away from the March for Science taking place in Washington D.C, but still looking for a way to commemorate Earth Day on April 22, 2017, never fear — Facebook quotes are here. These Earth Day quotes to share online are the perfect way to take note of Earth Day in 2017 without having to buy an expensive plane ticket to D.C.
Now these quotes vary when it comes to advocating for planet Earth. Some talk more on human nature within Earth, while others focus on Mother Nature herself. The hope with this variety is to give others a broad perspective of how much Earth Day really does mean to people. It's more than just being green; it's about treating the Earth with respect, while also treating those around you with respect as well.
Sure our world is no where close to having world peace, but we do share a planet together — which means caring for this planet as much as we possibly can. Because even if you feel climate change isn't real, there is no denying that we make an impact on the Earth around us. The way you treat the Earth really can take a toll on nature, as well as those around you.
Make that statement on Facebook this Earth Day by sharing one of these empowering quotes below.
