1000 Flowers for the Planet - Take Ownership of Your Environment
Fixing the entire world is not a challenge for a single person. Thinking about all the problems we face with climate change, pollution, wars, energy production, human trafficking, animal cruelty and so much more is enough to stop the strongest activist in their tracks. But we can create change. We have the power to alter any outcome and create a better place for future generations and ourselves. And it does start with just one person – you.
Everything begins with the first step and goes on from there. To create change, first change your personal behaviours in your own environment, which is your home. Pay attention to how much you waste, how much you purchase needlessly, what you really need and what is just stuff without any meaning. Try to use less of everything – less water, less electricity, less gas, less petrol, less food, less clothing, less paper, less printer ink, less chemicals. You get the picture. Pay attention to what leaves your environment – are you putting chemicals down the drain, poisons into the soil, filling the rubbish/trash bin to the brim every week? See how you can take ownership of what happens in your own environment and how you can make less of a negative impact on the planet to help create change for the better. Once you know how to do it better, you can helps others to take ownership too.
