Hi, everyone! I know at the moment I only have 480 watchers but I had to do this contest now before Earth Day because the earth needs our help.

Please don't click away just yet, there will be prizes at the end!

  I know that a lot of people want to be ignorant about these things (me included sometimes) because what we don't know won't hurt us, right? So wrong. The earth is our home, we should all care about it and want to do whatever we can to help solve problems in it. I could spend this journal explaining to you about global warming, dying polar bears, and the production of harmful chemicals and plastics but we already know about these things. The problem here is that we spend so much of our time educating the public about the problems (which, -don't get me wrong- is a good thing) but we forget to mention everyday solutions to these problems.

That's where you come in. I am holding an art contest in celebration of Earth Day and there are some awesome prizes (If I get over 15 entries, as it's a lot of money and prizes I'm giving away)!!!

RULES

- Read why I'm holding the contest above
- Draw a picture of your OC(s) (human, MLP, furry, etc.) doing something that we could do to positively impact the earth (for example: recycling something, installing solar panels, etc. be creative!
- Write a journal about this contest and why preserving the planet is important to you (videos or links to blogs about earth problems and solutions are bonuses!) and link the journal in the comment section below.
- When your picture is finished, please either note me or link it in the comment below as well.

I will be judging based on originality of your earth-saving solutions, not the quality of your artwork (although if you put effort into it it makes it nicer). The deadline is April 21, 2017 5:00 PM EST (so I can feature your work on Earth Day, the 22nd). Now on to the reason you're all here:




PRIZES


1st Place
- $25.00 (or the equivalent in points: 25,000) and a free commission from me (Flita)

ENTRIES


Mylifeasadoodle  Save the Earth!The Earth is an amazing thing. It supports our lives. It provides homes for plants and animals, who provide us with food and so many other things. Everything you ever owned, seen, thought of... all of it you can somehow atribute back to the Earth. I may not be the best writer, and there is probably going to be so many typos in this, but I'm here to tell you how to save the Earth. You won't believe how easy some of this is. I will mainly be talking about recycling and heating and cooling. 
The first thing you can do is simply recycle! One of my favorite R's (Recycle, repair, reuse, reduce...), it's so simple. Say, maybe you are from the 1900s. you just enjoyed a can of your favorite soft drink. You recycle it. Today, another girl is enjoying a can of her favorite soda. She doesn't know it, but because all of the people in possesion of the can with parts of the can from the origanal have recycled it, the can she is enjoying has parts of the original can! aluminum can be recycled ove

peanutzombiee  For Flita's ContestPreserving the planet is needed because so far as we know our planet is the only one that contains life. If we don't preserve the planet it could ver well loose that title's meaning. The polar bears and them are dying and they are a nessecity to life and the enviroment. This is my opinion on the global warming and why we should preserve our earth.  Cleaning Up the Earth by peanutzombiee
Miss-Symph-0x0  500 Watchers Contest! .:Not Mine:.Hello everybody, 
This contest is ... how to say it, well, I really like the concept that these users try to give! It is very cute!

My entry:

To explain it is my Main OC Symphony planting a plant. For those who do not know I like agriculture too, and when I read that to enter could do something like that just think: "Wow! If Symph does something for the environment, it has to be sow!"
I find it very beneficial! Nowadays, green spaces are scarce. Strange when you breathed in pure air and there were trees around every corner...
but bueh, I wish this activity were prolonged! I hope you have fun making your entries with messages like these ~

creampuffpom  Ditch the 'Poo!It's time to try something new:
Going without shampoo!
For those of you saying 'ew'
Do I have news for you-
Okay, I'm going to stop now, but you'd be surprised how much rhymes with 'poo'. All joking aside going without shampoo is a simple thing that nearly (with the exception of individuals with doctor prescribed shampoos who need whatever medication is in the shampoo in order to maintain their health and standard of life, if that is the case for you you have no obligation to stop using that shampoo) everyone can do. I know it sounds weird but it's a small, and actually very reasonable thing, any one can do that will not only have a positive impact on the heath of their hair, but the health of the environment as a whole. 
Why should you
ditch the ‘poo?

Well, for the noble types who think that the personal benefits they’ll reap from quitting shampoo such as a reduction of facial and back acne and improved scalp health are not reason enough, there are a

StingFang  Save The EarthHey guys! I’m entering this contest about saving our mother Earth, located here: http://fav.me/db4ne56 . It is a contest by :iconFlita:
 
So, here’s my drawing entry…  
What I drew there was my only OC Dmitry. He’s standing on a small boat/raft while holding a long stick with a net at the end. He’s actually floating on a river collecting trash. In the Philippines, the Ilog Pasig or the Pasig River is one of the most polluted rivers in the Philippines. It was also the most beautiful river before, but then people started to dump their trash thee and just got used to it being their personal toilet, and dump site. Yes, people poop, and pee there. This does only happen with this specific river. It actually happens to a lot of other bodies of water like the Manila Bay, wherein kids would go swimming in the summer. In fact, it is absolutely not advised to go swimming there espe

SlytherclawPadawan  Eco-Ride! - Earth Day Contest EntrySo I'm joining a contest by Flita:

And here's my art:

The "OC" is simply me, doing anything I want to do - in this case riding all the way through Paris!  ;P
I think it's no brainer as to why preserving the planet is important: well, we happen to live here. And just like taking care of your home will determine your life (health) quality, same with taking care of the Earth. One thing why many people still not aware of it is because sometimes we don't see the cause and effect in short time, some dire consequences or disaster would just appear much later when all results of ignorance were accumulated. 
Now what do I personally do in terms of preserving this planet? I guess like some others I've still got some not-so-ecofriendly habits like using chemicals in everyday life (soap, detergent, etc), but at least one thing I can do is to reduce the air pollution by using electric bicycle as everyday tran
  Eco-Ride (Digital Mix) by SlytherclawPadawan

IrdesTheBrony  Earth Day contest journalSo, Earth Day is here. 
We should take care of the planet. If not for it, then for us, because if we don't... well, the planet will go on, but likely without us.
While it may seem like one person's contribution won't change anything, it will.
So do at least try.
And it does not have to be solar panels or recycling everything to be good.
For example, what I do is re-use old, broken things. 
While fixing things that were trashed might not seem good like using renewable resources or recycling, think of it.
You take the to-be trash and re-use it, and isn't that recycling? And junk is pretty much an infinitely renewable resource.
So here is Scootaloo, fixing an old scooter instead of getting a new one.

Sadly, it hasn't been proven false yet :(  I wish t was fake.  I live in Canada and when I was a child we used to get feet of snow, now only a few years later we didn't even get snow for Christmas.  The most we got was 3-4 inches.  I would assume you live in the states where Trump rules and has told everyone global warming is fake?  I hate to say it but he's wrong.

Lol, I don't put my faith in man or it's propaganda. As a man of science I look at the numbers. The earth is heating up yes, but it had absolutely nothing to do with pollution. As our scientist has discovered every planet is heating up just the same. That's why people don't use the term "Global warming" anymore. It's not called "Climate change" which is happening, but it still has nothing to do with pollution.

I think were closer to the same page then you may think. I actually don't have a OC. I keep thinking of ideas for one but I just don't think I have that kind of creative skill yet. If I do make one it will be cringy or just a knock off of a character that already exists.
