Dab the Planet!
When we dance, especially with a partner, we are tuned in to each other’s vibe, motion, and movement. We anticipate, tune in and have a blast? Why not do that for the place we live – everybody, at the same time, Dab for the planet! Yeah, silly — yes and, but there is no “Planet B” and making a begin aware and talking about it, that’s where change starts. The more people are aware, the more things change, and the more people will care about this place we live. So get funky, break it down, tango, cha-cha, waltz, or line dance, the planet doesn’t care, Dab for the Planet – it’s the least we can do for the beautiful days we get. You never really know what is possible till you try.
When you purchase from any Dab for the Planet product, we will donate a portion of the sale to a planet charity listed at the checkout.
“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors. We borrow it from our children.”

When the last human falls
When the last human falls, I will sigh and begin again. I tried, but now it’s too late. Undoing this mess will take some time.
For many years we live in harmony; I gave everything in love. They took only what they needed in respect, and we were happy.
Then I became a possession – a thing to have, to be taken for granted. My warnings they ignored, my voice drowned out by the selfish action and apathetic inaction. The more I gave, the more I was neglected, abused, poisoned… raped.
Many tried to help as hope’s last voice faded – drowned by wants instead of needs – dowsed in absolutes instead of compromise and no regard for consequence.
I grew sick, shriveled, and ugly, my body gave up, and I could no longer heal myself; with nothing left to give, all I can do is wait for their end.
Of my children, none were more precious, given so much, and had the boundless potential for beauty. When the last human falls, I will heal. I will try again; maybe this time, I will give my trees a brain and leave it at that.

11 Things to Help Protect the Earth
Emission reduction targets pledged by countries are not enough to put us on track for a secure climate, according to science. We don’t have time to wait. Every person and every business has an opportunity to take accountability for their climate impact and support the reduction of global carbon emissions.
Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Cut down on what you throw away. Follow the three “R’s” to conserve natural resources and landfill space.
Volunteer. Volunteer for cleanups in your community. You can get involved in protecting your watershed, too.
Educate. When you further your own education, you can help others understand the importance and value of our natural resources.
Conserve water. The less water you use, the less runoff and wastewater that eventually end up in the ocean.
Don’t send chemicals into our waterways. Choose non-toxic chemicals in the home and office.
Bike more. Drive less.
Talk about – share – inform educate people!
Choose sustainable. Learn how to make smart seafood choices at www.fishwatch.gov
Shop wisely. Buy less plastic and bring a reusable shopping bag.
Use long-lasting light bulbs. Energy efficient light bulbs reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Also flip the light switch off when you leave the room!
Plant a tree. Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change.
