We all live our own lives with one common factor – we all exist on the same planet. Each of us have our own strengths and our own weaknesses. On this planet Earth, unfortunately, there is only one planet and it is facing a questionable and uncertain future. Unless all of us who inhabit this planet join together with the common purpose of preserving our “home,” our individual futures are uncertain as well.
Earth Day, 2021, is being observed globally on April 20, 21 and 22, 2021. Three days for all of us to acquire knowledge and understanding on the tasks we can implement to help “Restore Our Earth” which is the theme for Earth Day, 2021. Our goal is to make this world a better, happier, healthier and safer place!
For those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere, the spring and summer months give us ample opportunity to understand the importance of preserving nature in order for us to enjoy the experience in the future. Those residing in the Southern Hemisphere also appreciate their natural surroundings but for their seasons of autumn and winter. No matter where we identify as “home” on this planet, Earth, almost all of us have reasons to want to save what we have in order to preserve our continued happiness.
Bare practitioners, after being in hibernation during the cold winters, are often among the first celebrants of Earth Day festivities each year. Being restricted to indoor environments for months presents us with a fond desire to refurbish our Earth in order to naturally enjoy nature. Doing our part in efforts to conserve and protect this planet are small prices to pay for our clothes freedom!
Earth Day was first celebrated on April 22, 1970. The idea was first considered in 1969 at a UNESCO Conference held in San Francisco, USA, by peace activist John McConnell to honor Earth and the concept of global peace. The movement gained strength and support and was signed into a proclamation by the then Secretary-General of the United Nations, U Thant.
Over the years, I have many times been questioned on the reasons why naturists or nudists support the idea of Earth Day. My response is quite simply, “Why not?” As a man who enjoys being totally bare (clothes free) as much as possible, I can’t understand anyone’s confusion over my enthusiasm for being without any clothing while exploring the “great outdoors.” In my mind, being “natural” in “nature” is the same as being “living” and “breathing” simultaneously. I also have the comfort in knowing that I am not the only bare practitioner who feels this way.
Those of us who celebrate, embrace and enjoy our nakedness – alone or in the company of others who may or may not be naked – the Spring of every year, since 1970, offers us an opportunity of renewal. First, we have a chance to return to nature in our completely natural body, without the burden and artificial concealment of clothing. Second, we are given yet another occasion to welcome the rebirth of our natural environment – nature – and our natural selves.
This experience renews our sense of confidence and pride in both our natural surroundings (nature) and our natural home that we all share: Earth. We are therefore enabled and enriched in our appreciation and in our dedication to the preservation of Earth. This endowment explains the affinity that the majority of us envision and feel for Earth Day observances. It provides all of us not only a reason for the renewed – renude – integrity of ourselves but also the renewed – renude – dignity of our shared environment!
Bare practitioners (bisexual or gay naturists/nudists) especially endorse the annual Earth Day festivities. It provides all of us not only a reason to examine the updates in environmental issues and practices but another time to educate others about the benefits of conservation and preservation.
This year’s theme for Earth Day is: “Restore Our Earth.” For additional information on the details, please visit the website:
To everyone, happy Earth Day, 2021!
Take care and stay bare!
