All the things you don’t see on a photo like this and many others…like the garbage in the streets.As Mark Zuckerberg said, “ we may not have the power to create the world we want immediately, but we can all start working on the long term today”.
I want to live in a place where there’s no garbage in the streets, so I’m picking up what I can…it’s really not that hard.
There are many ways to fight climate change and to clean up the world. I think the first and very important thing you must realize is that you can’t do everything.
You alone cannot save the planet…but you can help. We can all help just a little. It’s like the saying goes: A little goes a long way.
Some of the thing that you can easily do is start with yourself. Look at your lifestyle and what you use at home, at work, etc. Can you switch out single-use plastics (bags, cups, straws, etc.) for re-usable items?
Can you pick up garbage in the streets when you go for a walk/run or walk your dog? Can you bring your kids and make a game of it and teach them that littering is bad?
Can you buy organic food and clothes?
Can you cut down your overall consumption?
There are so many things you can do… but first, you have to tell yourself that you can’t do everything, that it’s okay if you forget or slip up, and that there will always be (much) room for improvement.
