Today, as I was leaving my office and driving home through the garbage-filled streets I thought: Why do you care?
Why do you care that there’s garbage everywhere?
Why do you care about avoiding single-use plastic?
Why do you care about food waste?
Why do you care about recycling and wish you could do it?
Why do you care about reducing your consumption?
Why do you care when it all makes you so sad, so angry, so upset, so depressed…???
I care, because I feel like we can all do better than this. Because I refuse to believe that this is our fate.
I care, because I want the world to be beautiful and clean… not because I have children and I want them to live in a clean world. I don’t have children, but I care for everyone’s sake – now and for the future.
I care, because I want to be able to go for a walk along the beach, the golf course where I live or drive home from work without seeing any garbage in the streets.
I care, because I have a need to care about something bigger than myself and my life.
I care, because I just do…
What about you? Do you care or why don’t you care?
