We as Pagans and Witches need to walk with our Native American brothers and sisters in trying to preserve and healing Mother Earth and all living thing on her.
We use the elements in rituals and for spellwork these too are part of nature and should always be thanked for their help in whatever we use them for. Along with herbs, flowers, bird feathers etc.
When out walking take a small trash bag with you and pick up the trash others are to laxy to dispose of properly. You maybe saving a bird or small animals live by doing this.
