Happy Earth Day! Here are a collection of some of my favorite nature photos over the last year. All taken by me in Colorado except for the Instax of me. (At Garden of The Gods, Lake George, and Seven Falls.) As a vegan, Earth Day means a lot to me. I do what I can to have as little impact and footprint possible. The environmental factors weren't important to me when I made the switch, but they are weighing heavily on my conscience more and more. Our plastic consumption and single use disposable waste is becoming way too much for this earth to handle. Over the next year I'm going to be switching to some zero-waste methods to reduce my impact any further. I would encourage anyone whose actually read this far to maybe try a vegan diet, even a couple days out of the week or if you're already veg to perhaps look into zero-waste techniques to see what else you can do.
