When deciding to write Earth Day content a few months ago, none of us at the Clog could have predicted what the state of the world would be on April 22. Being confined to the spaces of our homes, backyards, balconies and the line outside of Trader Joe’s has put not just our lives, but our relationship with the Earth into perspective.
It’s been a challenge to not be able to spend time with our favorite people at the natural places we love, whether that be the Fire Trails, by spring cherry blossom blooms on campus, Memorial Glade or the Berkeley Marina. Despite the challenge, we at the Clog like to think that we’ll try and treat our home more kindly when we’re out of quarantine.
To live on this Earth is to connect with nature and the humans that inhabit it. From the national parks to the Berkeley squirrels, we hope that our Earth Day content brings you a little joy, increases your appreciation for the environment and reconnects you with life on this beautiful, blue planet.
Peace, Love (the Earth), Clog.
