No-one can no longer deny the fact of global warming. It’s a serious and important issue to consider – not just for politicians around the world and people as well as companies in power, however, also for us, normal people. As such, I find it extremely important to highlight this issue and stress some of the small things that people can do without changing your entire lifestyle – step-by-step changes, so to speak. I’ve made certain adjustments in my lifestyle as I’ve become increasingly aware of ways to improve my responsibility towards the environment:
- Sort trash
- Cut back on water consumption
- Cut back on electricity consumption and use LED light bulbs
- Use public transportation
- Eat organic – as much as possible
- Decrease meat consumption
- Decrease clothes consumption
These are the things I consider on a daily basis. Of course, there’s always more that can be done! And I’m fully aware that I can do a lot more than what I’m currently doing – but I’m working on it, and that’s my point exactly: Step-by-step changes! For example, I’m really bad at taking a shower under 15 minutes. So instead of forcing myself to start my day on a bad note, I no longer shower every day, however, every second day. That way, I feel as if I’m compromising with myself. Moreover, regarding eating organic, I would like to switch completely to organic food and clothes in the long run. For now, though, considering my salary, I focus on buying as much organic food as possible within my budget. The organic clothes will eventually be part of my lifestyle – until then, I’ll cut back on my clothes consumption instead. Again, step-by-step changes that doesn’t affect my lifestyle too much but compromises it. Eventually, all these little steps will lead to big changes, I believe.
What do you think? And what do you do to take care of the environment and live up to your responsibility towards the Earth? Please, do enlighten me – I bet there are many things I can learn from you.
