A Little Story About My Going Green Life
I grew up in a small town. I learned so much about the world as a youth, and quickly realized that my optimistic childhood perception of the world was very different to the reality I found myself in. How does a young person find their place in a world, develop their own identity, if they find their environment so unfamiliar?
Overpopulation, resource depletion, natural disasters, nuclear issues, intensive farming, animal rights issues, genetically modified food, the meat industry, pollution, toxicants, world war, worldwide hunger, droughts, climate change. The list goes on…!
Naturally, I surrounded myself with like-minded people, which fortunately there was an abundance of where I was. The town was known for its education and the citizens’ liberal ways of thinking. There were many good people. Together we observed life, its philosophy and questioned everything about it. We were not afraid to think outside the box or act upon our thoughts.
We gave each other the confidence we needed to find our place in society. We started being active members of our community. If we couldn’t fit into the world we were in, we needed to make the world fit around us. We needed to do what we knew was right. We started going green!
More People Are Choosing Green Alternatives
If you are reading this it is likely that you are already considering going green and may already being doing so. If you haven’t started this journey yet, I implore you to do so today. The more people that join us, the bigger our impact. We are stronger together.
This community will help you and others learn about how to protect our planet for future generations, so it is capable of sustaining humanity for many generations to come. More people realize, that in order to do this it is crucial that our planet is healthy. We must therefore address our harmful human activities which cause environmental issues.
Living Green One Day At A Time
We can’t solve global issues single handily. But we can do our part to contribute towards the bigger picture. It is OK to think small and take one day at a time, step by step. Individuals make small healthy changes to their personal lives and together we have a huge impact on the health of the earth, our society and our future.
There are so many aspects to our every day lives which we view as normal yet these practices are extremely harmful to our personal health and to the health of our environment; and many have toxic effects on our bodies, and animal life and plant life too. We are exposed to toxins every day. They Toxins can have catastrophic effects on our health and life expectancy. Become healthier by going green!
Act Now, Before Its Too Late
Our society, for example the medical industry, is built upon a model where we wait until a problem happens before attempting to fix it. This has happened due to the slow rate that knowledge develops at.
There have been many models for medicine throughout history, slowly evolving as we learn more. This old model of fixing problems will not work when trying to regenerate our planet. However, in this age, the age of the internet, knowledge is accessible to nearly everybody.
