Rebalance: Greenhouse gases with photosynthesis.
Recognize: Plants cool by evaporation, groundcover, shade, and precipitation.
Replant: Lawns with victory Gardens, as in world war past.
Regenerate: Bio diverse farms with trees-flowers-herbs-pasture-animals.
Restore: Carbon out of air and back into soil‘s, where it belongs.
Replace: Industrial monocultures with regenerative permaculture.
Revisit: Food production by many small farms, not a few megafarms.
Reject: Fossil fuel-based pesticides, plastics, and propaganda.
Rethink: Healthy ecosystems and economies for all life.
Re-localize: Slow food, slow lifestyles, and slow economies.
Rekindle: Simple and good, nature and nurture, feeling over thinking.
Refeel: Kinship with pivoting sunflowers and starry fire flies.
Revive: Wilderness, Woodlands, wetlands, wildlife, waterways.
Reestablish: Health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats, beetles.
Respect: Work of insects, both pollinating and recomposing life.
Remember: Everything is connected. Everyone lives down stream and downwind.
Reimagine: deep conservation, cooperation, and community.
Rebalance: Nature knows. Mimic her. Sense her. Be her.
