Tangible Karma Day
Tangible Karma Day is observed next on Saturday, April 6th, 2024 (125 days from today).
The first Saturday of April every year is Tangible Karma Day. Karma is believed to have originated in ancient India and has major concepts in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism and Taoism. It is an interesting chance for us to help each other by giving our useless things to those in need. It is a day honoring giving and cleansing one's bad karma.
History of Tangible Karma Day
In 2005, Amber Nicole Dilger created Tangible Karma Day and it was also the first celebration. Her main idea for creating good karma is through recycling and reuse. To help with the donation of some items to the companies, Tangible Karma will donate these items to someone who really needs them because she no longer has a need to use them. Amber's motivation for this holiday is the fact that he has a lot of clutter in his homes. Most of these clutter are things we don't use and just take up space in our homes and minds. A home space is supposed to be quiet and this pile of unused items will keep us from finding solace in these places. Amber is also very eco-friendly and is always trying to find new ways to make the most of the different resources it has to offer. As the result, Tangible Karma Day was born in order to provide knowledge and raise awareness of a new type of recycling that combines these two causes.
Example of Upcycling
As the name suggests, upcycling is the opposite of downcycling, which is what most people think of when they think about recycling. Instead of breaking down materials to return them to Earth, upcycling will reuse these items so they can be used again and again. This is often seen in modern art. Many artists take broken pottery to assemble a new project. One example is Dutch artist Max Zorn, who took brown packing tape and created new works of art to hang on street lights at night. Upcycling has also appeared in the industry. Water bottles made from recycled plastic, pens made from recycled plastic, and cardboard made from recycled cardboard are some examples. By reusing such materials, industries are improving their environmental footprint. Finally, enhanced clothing has become incredibly popular in recent years. Thrift stores like Goodwill and Plato's Closet have become very popular as they offer one-of-a-kind pieces for a quarter of the retail price. Engaging in any of these advanced practices not only helps the earth, but also your karma. Energy is never destroyed just changed and by taking positive karma out of the world it will come back to you in some way.
How to Celebrate Tangible Karma Day
There are a number of wonderful ways to celebrate this spread of Karma and love. The best way to celebrate the coming together of people around the world is to hold a small group in your home.
Moreover, you can gather them together in a house party and let everyone show up and bring something to give. But if you feel more active in the community, you can also spend time working at a local shelter. All of these communities cater including homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, are unfortunate or experiencing hardship and often trauma in their lives.
Tangible Karma Day is a great opportunity for increasing the help in the world and we even get immediate results, feeling well done to someone who needs it.
