Earth Day 2019: A Celebration Around the World

    
Earth Day is celebrated around the World
and 
The focus of Earth Day 2019 is "Protect Our Species" 

All of our plants and animals have value in themselves and are part of the web of life. Our lives and theirs are linked together inextricably — without them, our own species might not survive.

The Facts: Declining and Endangered Species

  • Land-dwelling wildlife species have declined by 40% since 1970.
  • Marine animal populations have fallen by 40% overall.
  • Birds populations have been reduced by about 20-25%.
  • Freshwater animal populations have plummeted by 75% since 1970.
  • Insect populations have also declined dramatically. In Germany alone, insects have declined by 75% in the last 30 years.
  • Almost fifty percent of the world’s coral reefs have died in the last 30 years.

 We’re all connected: We need to collectively support natural ecosystems, so they can continue to sustain life on earth.




 
So our entry into the Project Run and Play Challenge could be worn at the celebration of 
 Earth Day 2019
 because it celebrates the ecosystem of the mountains and the animals that live there.
This comfortable cotton lyrca fabric
  features beautifully muted coloration.
The pattern was self-drafted to show off the layers of colors and the silhouette of the mountain forests at the bottom of each leg. 

 
Notice the mountain lion 
           applique
       on the white shirt.








 Good bye....
We plan on attending 
the Earth Day celebrations
in our area in 2019.

We hope to see you there....because the 
Earth Needs Us All To Care. 
And Dear Reader... Please leave a comment about what you think of our creation and what you plan to do to celebrate Earth Day 2019.
Smiles....Deborah and Miss C
