Losing your marbles is a good thing when you are playing the Blue Marble Game! And with Earth Day right around the corner, it’s a great time to lose some marbles!
Sponsored by the Blue Marbles Project, both the game and project were introduced by marine biologist Dr. Wallace J. Nichols. Dr. Nichols is not only working to protect our waters, but also to reward people who care for the Earth with Random Acts of Gratitude. “Each blue marble tells us that everything we do on this planet matters,” says Dr. Nichols.
To play the game, you “catch” someone doing something great for the Earth and then give them a little blue marble (a representation of what the Earth looks like from one million miles away) as a “thank you.” For example, you might catch someone recycling, picking up litter, composting, or bringing reusable bags to the store. Then share your blue marble story with the world however you like.
The Blue Marble Project was featured in our March 2016 newsletter. Check it out for links to more information about the project and Dr. Nichols’ work.
