Blue Marbles and Youth Awareness

blue marbles 15

The Blue Marbles Project is creating youth awareness about sharing, giving, and gratitude towards one another and our blue planet.  This project involves passing a blue marble from one person to another who has shown concern for our planet.  From the simple act of picking up some random trash, to getting involved in a clean drive for instance, it doesn’t measure how big or small your part is, if you have a blue marble in your hand, it simply shows that you care.

Youth awareness and the blue marble

Getting the youth involve in this project creates such an impact to the way they see our environment; even the way they see each other.  It makes them realized that what they do, really matter and is of value not just for the planet but to each other as well.  It teaches them the value of giving and showing gratitude to other people.

Sometimes the act of giving away the marble may seem hard at first for these kids, but they soon realize the importance of completing this act, and how much it will mean to him, to the other person he’s passing it to and of course to our beautiful blue planet.

The blue marble signifies a physical embodiment of gratitude awarded by an individual for an act of kindness that one can proudly show and proudly pass on to the next deserving person.

It’s your turn to create youth awareness

Make your move now and start involving your kids in Blue Marbles Project.  Let’s create youth awareness and prepare these kids for a better future on a healthy planet.  Let’s start while they are young.

You’ll be surprised at how children could easily pick up on the positive values you’re teaching them.  These kids simply need our guidance.  They don’t have to grow up all rotten and spoiled, irresponsible and disrespectful towards people and the environment.

Teaching them to respect living things on our planet will create a lasting effect and turn them into these individuals who are compassionate to fellow kids and their elderly as well.  I it really boils down to what they see around them, to what they are unconsciously being subjected to.  Like for instance if it’s so natural for their parents or adults around them to just throw trash anywhere as long as nobody is looking, it’ll create a notion in their minds that littering is okay and that it’s not a big deal.  But try taking the time to explain to a child what a simple act of throwing for example, a simple candy wrapper in the ocean will do, you’ll be amazed at how they will react and how that explanation will impact and change their view about trashing the ocean.

Channeling women empowerment to create youth awareness

Let’s use women empowerment and take the responsibility to create youth awareness and empower the future generation.  Let’s take it upon us to educate our kids – our young generation, about the importance of caring for our dear planet.  Let’s promote green living and nurture them with an eco-friendly lifestyle.  Let us always remind them and ourselves, as well, that this is the only planet we can call our home.  In fact, it is our only home.

This project involves passing a blue marble from one person to another who has shown concern for our planet.  It’s a sign of gratitude, an appreciation for that act of kindness to our environment.  It doesn’t question how big or small your part is, if you have a blue marble in your hand, it simply shows that you care.  And as long as people care, there is hope.

If you want to be a part of this cool project simply share a ‘blue’ marble to a person whom you believe is doing something good for the planet, it’s a sign of gratitude.  Then you encourage that person to do the same and pass the blue marble on.  You can then share your story with the world however you like.

Preferably of course, share your photo with your blue marble, that way we somehow connect with each other!  You’ll be amazed to see where these blue marbles have been to and who have touched them so far.

Why blue marbles?

The Blue Marbles the famous photo of the earth taken from the moon by astronauts.  That is how our home looks like when viewed from the outer space – a glowing marble of blue oceans and green forest.  Hold a blue marble at arm’s length in front of you, and it will be like looking into earth from million miles away.

We love the ocean, my family love to surf and we just love the beach!  We’re living an eco-friendly lifestyle and support social awareness about green living and protecting our environment.  Whoever or wherever you are, you can do something to lessen carbon footprints in our planet.

Try to walk or bicycling whenever possible as opposed to just jumping into your car whenever you need to be somewhere else.  Mind your trash, no matter small or tiny piece it is.  Be wary of the materials you’re using, opt for biodegradable stuff.  Don’t be afraid to venture on new things, and hide on the premise that it’s something you’re not accustomed with therefore could be a waste of time.

For instance, I took a chance and tried affiliate marketing which is just one of the perfect home business ideas and opportunities for women.  It’s simply awesome and doing really great for me!  I’m now working from home and glad to say that I no longer take part in producing carbon footprints along with other commuters.

Be appreciative of the planet we live in, yes that’s a good start actually.  Once you realize what we have been blessed with and how precious and how vulnerable this planet is, then perhaps you’ll start paying attention and be more caring and responsible.
