Happy Earth Day!

What’s three doors down from the sun, has blue eyes, and is everyone’s favorite place to live?! You guessed it, planet earth.

It’s clear that ENOpians love the earth. Hammockers have a healthy appreciation for trees, the soil that holds their roots in place, the water from the sky that nourishes them, and the light from the sun that fuels them.

Founded in 1970 and celebrated in almost 200 countries, Earth day was established to serve as a platform to publicly discuss environmental protection issues and efforts. Additionally, it’s also just a way to say thank you to Mother Nature and show appreciation for this surreally beautiful earth we live on.

It’s no secret that we as a whole human population have a long way to go in order to bring our earth in balance. But we’re trying every day. There are positive groups and organizations all over the globe that are making a difference so our earth is still here for the children of the next generation.

“Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.” -Theodore Roosevelt

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”  -Rachel Carson
