48 Earth Day Quotes

Be inspired by these Earth Day quotes. Earth Day is celebrated each year, but Earth Day should be every day and everybody can make a difference in preserving this precious planet of ours! In some areas, each Earth Day sees many trees planted.

Lately, there are dedicated groups that are picking up plastic bottles out of our oceans. Imagine the disaster if our earth is polluted to the point that the air is unbreathable or there are reoccurring violent storms that reduce airable land for planting food crops. What is common to all of humankind is that we all inhabit this earth. In effect, there is no replacement so what we do to Earth lasts far into the next generation and so on. It isn't necessarily any government's responsibility as much as it is each person's duty to contribute to the on-going vitality of our earthly home. How can you do your part?

We hope you find these short quotes inspiring and that they provide encouragement to you and to others.
