In case you didn’t already know it, you’re pretty much off the hook when it comes to saving the entire world all by yourself.
Isn’t that great?
You don’t need to force everyone to help you stop climate change or make them quit buying or using products that harm the environment. Perhaps laws can force people to change, but you can’t.
However, if you’ve ever asked yourself, “How can I help the environment?” you are moving in the right direction.
All you need to do is take a few small steps to green your habits in your own life and in your own world. This is important because you’re in charge of almost all of your actions all of the time.
So, all by your lonesome, you can make a gigantic difference, and what you do every day can add up over time. You have 365 days each year to get it right. You may not get it right all of the time, of course, but you can try.
“Just do a little bit every day
Just a little something
Within your own world
Within your community
Within your household.”
~Adrian Grenier—Actor, producer, director, musician, environmentalist
It’s About You
Sometimes it’s about what you do.
Sometimes it’s about what you don’t do.
However, here is the big green point: It’s about you.
- Do you recycle your old cardboard boxes, paper, glass and plastic bottles instead of throwing them in the trash?
- Are you constantly trying to improve your green habits?
- Do you buy from companies that practice sustainable habits?
- Do you avoid buying items you don’t really need?
- Have you taken steps to stop junk mail from piling up in your mailbox?
So, are you ready to ask: How can I help the environment? If you are ready to ask, you are ready to help, and you are ready to make a difference.
Everything you do is important. You matter. The planet matters.
What have you done lately to help keep the planet healthy?
