“And maybe, as all planes and cruise ships are docked and grounded, and as our cars sit in our driveways, we can look to an empty street or a sky without jet streams and feel that we aren’t missing anything, but saving it. When we are able to return to life as normal, we can all be more mindful of the personal wake we leave, or the jet stream we create, and not feel the need to see all the world has to offer. So long as we’ve been looking for the world to give us answers, now is the time to start asking if the world actually owes us one.”
This Earth Day, as we mark 50 years of celebration of our communal home indoors, let’s make it far more than just a day by taking a moment to revisit our connections to Mother Nature in our #PPLifeOnEarth Instagram Challenge.
Getting back to nature to reset oneself is a tale as old as time. And as we continue to #stayhome to battle the pandemic and dream of exploring more of Earth’s natural beauty one day, we hope that when that day comes that it’s with a more sustainable approach to preserve life on Earth. Whether sea to shore, mountain top to valley, forest to desert, or the many species that call Earth home, take us back into the great outdoors by sharing a moment that showcases #PPLifeOnEarth.
- Share a photo/video that showcases life on Earth or its natural beauty between today and April 30, 2020, at 11:59 pm EST.
- Take us into the scene through a detailed caption describing what this moment in nature means to you.

For @passionpassport‘s #PPLifeOnEarth challenge // “This photo is a pleasing reminder of the amazing summer I had in 2019. I don’t get to travel as much as I’d like, but during that trip, I was fortunate to explore Bryce Canyon, the Grand Canyon, Havasupai, and places like this that I’d only seen in photos before. Sedona’s unique land formations and colors are a dream come true for landscape photographers. I took a few days to hike around, but without a destination in mind until I randomly ran into a friend. He knew exactly where to point me, right in the direction of this incredible vista. When I look back at this moment, I think about how beautiful the natural world is and how important it is to respect and preserve it for generations to come.”
