Blue Marbles

The story behind the blue marbles…

“When you’ve been given a blue marble, it is a gift to you for the good work you are doing for the planet.  Over one million blue marbles are traveling from person to person right now.

Hold your marble in front of you: this is how our planet appears from 1 million miles away.


Look closely into your blue marble at a light: in that much seawater you’ll find an abundance of life and virtually every element. 

Hold your marble to your head and think of someone who helps heal the world.


Hold it to your heart, and imagine presenting your blue marble as a gift to them with a simple, “thanks for doing what you are doing”.


Carry your marble until you find the right person to give it to.  Then, ask them to pass it along too. This is all we have: our only home, a fragile and beautiful blue marble.”

Yesterday I received a blue marble from the See Turtles table at ISTS. Made my day!
