Each year, on April 22nd, since 1970, we have celebrated Earth Day. It’s original and abiding purpose has been as an observance to focus Awareness on the many ecological challenges this planet faces.
Much has changed in the intervening years. Certainly more people are aware of the many problems confronting our environment, and the ongoing impact of issues like climate change, industrial pollution, waste disposal and the need for change in the way the agro-industrial complex produces our food, fiber and fuel.
In the months to come, we at Somewhere Over the Rainbow will address these issues and our views, as well as out abiding commitment to leaving the planet a better place than we found it.
We’ve been working hard toward opening our store. In the heart of Fort Davis on State Street, you’ll be able to find us (Fingers Crossed- Opening May 1st) between Davis Mountains Rock Shop and Cueva de Leon, next to the Nature Conservancy Office. As we get a little closer, I’ll be sure to keep you updated.
Until then, have a very thoughtful and reflective Earth Day. Let’s all find ways to honor our Mother Earth and help make it a better planet to live on. As the saying goes, “There is no Planet B”.
All the Best. Until next time…
