4 Ways To Give Back For Earth Month
4 Ways To Give Back For Earth Month With Amida Wealth
April is Earth Month, and it’s a great time to give back to our planet. If you haven’t been following our recent blogs, Amida is celebrating the earth all month long!
To begin, it’s important to recognize how Mother Earth provides for us. Here are a just a few examples. First, Earth provides us with a wide variety of foods that nourish us. Think about the nourishing fruits that grow on Florida trees. Second, the earth’s water cycle provides us with clean drinking water. Embrace the blessings that come from the snow covered peaks and trickle down! Third, earth’s atmosphere provides us with the air we breathe. Take a deep breath in and out from your nose. Feel the beautiful fresh air in your lungs! Lastly, earth provides us with a wide range of natural resources, used to heat up our homes. She provides us with everything we need to survive and thrive.
Above all, It is our responsibility to take care of her and ensure that these resources are preserved for future generations. Here are 4 simple ways to give back this Earth Month:
Plant Trees With Amida Wealth
Amida Wealth is a conscious business. We embody the art of giving back, and we work hard to embrace a “green” lifestyle. We believe that together, we can create a greener world for the future. In honor of Earth Month, there’s 2 things that we do every year. Amida sets up an annual Tree Planting Event or an Ocean Clean-Up.
Amida has planted over 570 trees, and we have been able to reduce our carbon footprint by 25,520 lbs and counting! Together with our partners at One Tree Planted, we have set up a page that you can contribute alongside our Green efforts. Please click here for further information. Together, we can create a greener future!
Planting trees is an effective way to help mitigate climate change and improve the environment in a number of ways. First, trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it in their leaves, branches, and trunks. This helps to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the air, which is a major contributor to climate change. Second, they enhance air quality. Trees absorb pollutants such as nitrogen oxides, ammonia, and sulfur dioxide from the air. They also produce oxygen, which is essential for human and animal life. Third, Trees help to prevent soil erosion by holding the soil in place with their roots. Fourth, trees provide habitat for a variety of wildlife. Lastly, trees help to conserve water by reducing runoff and preventing soil erosion.
This year we are choosing to clean-up our oceans!
Ocean Clean-Up With Amida Wealth
Amida is committed to growth. We build community while doing good for ourselves, our families, and our earth. This year we would like to send you, a personal invitation to join the Amida team at Miami Beach’s 1 Hotel for an Earth Day Beach Cleanup! Let us show appreciation for the earth we all share and clean its shorelines.
We are all surrounded by our oceans and they are the essence of all life. Let’s do good and then enjoy time together. If you would like to arrive early, we will be hosting an early morning meditation on the beach that starts at 8:15am. We’ll connect to ourselves, the earth, and step into gratitude for all of our abundance together. Just breathe. Then, we’ll do a little laughing and join Debris Free Oceans and the 1 Hotel to help clean our shorelines!
Shorelines are home to a diverse range of flora and fauna. Including; birds, marine mammals, fish, and other marine life. Cleaning shorelines helps protect their natural habitat by removing litter, debris, and pollutants that can harm or disrupt their ecosystems. Ocean Clean-Up helps prevent the accumulation of harmful materials such as plastics, microplastics, and chemicals, which can have long-term negative effects on marine life and ecosystems. Let’s give back together.
Honor The Soil
Sadhguru, a well-known Indian yogi, mystic, and author, emphasizes the importance of soil for human well-being and the health of the planet. According to Sadhguru, the soil is not just a medium for growing plants, but it is also a living entity that plays a crucial role in sustaining life. Sadhguru believes that healthy soil is vital for the growth of nutritious food and maintaining the ecological balance of Mother Earth. He emphasizes the need to protect and enhance the soil’s fertility by adopting sustainable farming practices, and minimizing the use of chemicals and pesticides. Likewise, Sadhguru emphasizes the spiritual significance of soil, as it is the source of life and sustenance for all living beings on the planet. You can learn more about Sadhguru’s global efforts to save the soil on his website.
