People’s Climate March

To me, environmental sustainability is the most pressing issue of our generation. Climate change is not a political issue, it is a moral issue. The choices we make on a daily basis will have ramifications in our lifetimes and in the lifetimes of our children.
If we know climate change is real, we should do our part to protect this earth. Knowledge is wasted if we do not act on what we know. I firmly believe if I am not doing my part, then I am contributing to the problem. It does not take much effort to contribute — small choices make big impacts. Use less, save more and we’ll start to see more money in our bank accounts! Our dollars matter more than we know. Spend it on locally sourced foods, instead of mass produced foods. Donate to the Nature Conservancy instead of spending it at a retail store. Let’s challenge ourselves to wait just one more year to buy a new phone. Reconsider using another plastic cup, say no to a plastic bag (or bring our own!), eat less beef, pick an item of trash off the street, cut showers by a minute, use public transportation instead of cars. I won’t always get it right, but I won’t stop trying. All these small decisions will make a bigger difference in the future than we realize! Let’s rethink our choices before we make them.
Rethink. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
