Irena 'retreats' to Hawaii : )





Aloha friends : )...

I will also be sharing news about other Bliss workshops, events and retreats.

Aloha- This warm Hawaiian greeting has deep meaning: "the presence of the divine is in our breath (ha) and is shared between us". (Mahalo Kumu Harry Uhane Jim)
"Inspire" also means "into spirit or breath", and many ancient cultures understood the breath as a clear gateway to spirit.

This year's Earth Day theme is: #EndPlasticPollution
#plasticless #lessplastic

Check out Earth Day Network's CALCULATE YOUR PLASTIC CONSUMPTION
Plastic pollution impacts the natural environment and our health and wellbeing. We have all contributed to this problem – often unknowingly – and we must work to reduce and ultimately to End Plastic Pollution. Use this calculator to learn more about how many plastic items you consume every year. www.earthday.org/plastic-calculator/

Now that you know more about the plastic items you consume, consider a plan to reduce your consumption...

Download Earth Day Network’s Plastic Pollution Plan and Tracker.

Check out their Plastic Pollution Primer and Action Toolkit.
Learn more about the 5Rs - Reduce, Refuse, Reuse, Recycle, Remove
and create a Personal Plastic Reduction Plan to -
1. Reduce your consumption of plastics.
2. Properly recycle the plastic you use.
3. Remove plastic that is already in the environment.

Pledge to Carry your own Cup' for the next 30 days to help eliminate single-use disposable paper/plastic cups and plastic bottles. And then continue...
I use a double-jacketed ss container for the last 8 yrs that's great for cold or hot liquids! : )

Individually and together, in grassroots community, we can make a big difference! : )

Pledge to go #plasticless #plasticfree
Commit to using a reusable (non-plastic) drinking container and reusable shopping/food bags to help eliminate single use cups, lids/straws, plastic bottles & plastic bags.

We can simplify our lives and choose lighter footprint options every day. Let's take care of Mother Earth and let every day be 'Earth Day'! : )
