1000 Flowers for the Planet - #221 Educate Yourself
Too many people like to go around with their heads buried in the sand. It’s time to lift your head out of the sand and take stock. Have a look at what is happening around you and educate yourself. Find out how your household waste affects the planet; learn about the environment; question what’s in your food and where and how it was produced; discover the beauty around you and find out how you can keep it safe; understand how you use water and don’t waste it; learn how many animals are becoming endangered daily and why – learn as much as you can about your affect on this planet and do something positive before you die and leave the problems to the next generation. Even if you only learn one new thing, that’s a plus, because if everyone learned on new thing and acted upon it, we’d all be better off. Don’t leave everything to someone else – take responsibility for your own education, then take action with your new-found knowledge.
