The time is NOW!
How are we going to live sustainably on this planet? By taking only what is necessary to live our lives in relationship with everything else. Like a tree that draws up only the water and nutrients needed to grow and bear fruit, we too need to separate our wants from our needs. Let’s minimize our negative impacts by maximizing our positive ones. Let these individual choices be the inspiration for collective change!
- Do something small every day and share it. For example, after living one side of the cube, post it on social media or just by talking to friends. Spread your passion and good works person to person.
- If you fail one day, simply start again the next day. The worst enemy of environment change is quitting from frustration and guilt. It’s ok to start over again and again.
- Today not tomorrow. Action not inaction. At the end of each day, ask yourself: ‘What did I do?’.

How did you live “The time is NOW”?
The moment is NOW! The other day I realized I had the anti-smog mask in my scooter for a long time … I bought it and then I did not use it because I could not hold it and I said I will use it. One of my colleagues at work needed it because moving with a bicycle in a city like Rome is indispensable! So I did not hesitate to give it to her, without thinking about it anymore!(Rome, Italy)
Today was a ‘double’ Earth Cube special… living two sides of the cube at the same time: ‘NOW is the Time!’ and ‘SMILE on the World!’ I looked in my sock drawer this morning and realized how many I have and could share. So, I bundled the extras up others. Less is more!(Paris, France)
My friends were mad at each other for weeks. I just couldn’t see them like that. So I made them talk and set things up. And they became friends again!!! ?(California, USA)
Today my mom asked me to clean my room and wash the dishes. I told her I was going to do that tomorrow but then I remembered of what my mom was asking me to do so I stand up and went to go clean my room and wash the dishes.(California, USA)
When i get home I usually procrastinate, so today instead of putting my responsibilities aside I started to do them right away when i got home.(California, USA)
