This Mother’s Day, Show Mother Earth Some Love

Posted Fri, 05/11/2018 - 11:00

Mother’s Day is almost here and is a great opportunity to celebrate one of the important mothers in all of our lives: Mother Earth. Take some time this weekend to celebrate all that Mother Earth has given us and show her some love. All mothers love a do-it-yourself or hand-made gift, so take some small actions to show her you care. Follow the 4Rs and refuse a straw in your drink when you go out for Mother’s Day brunch; reduce your use of single-use items by bringing your own bag to the grocery store when you’re shopping for ingredients to make mom breakfast in bed; treat your mom to a coffee in a reusable mug; and recycle (or better yet, upcycle or reuse!) the cardboard coupons your mom turns in for ‘one free hug.’

Looking to give Mother Earth the extra-special treatment this year? Join a cleanup to remove debris in your community. If you can’t find a cleanup near you, start one yourself and use the Marine Debris Tracker App to record what you find! Spread the word to others so they can show love to Mother Earth too, on Mother’s Day and every day!

Happy Mother’s Day from the NOAA Marine Debris Program
