Many of us wish to be greener because we are painfully aware of what is happening around us. We read and hear about climate change and fossil fuels, and we are shocked by the pictures of the plastic piles covering the land, polluting the oceans, and suffocating marine mammals and birds. We see unfairness around us. We see maltreated and exploited people, animals, societies, and nature. Yet we know that it is nature, this planet, that has given us everything we have. There are people in our lives who we want to be happy in the coming years. Our children and their children will need clean air and water, non-poisonous food, and space to live.
However, our everyday living goods and essentials seem to be created of plastic only, so it is almost impossible to avoid it. Our societies depend on consumption. Consume so we can thrive, boost the economy! We know that something has to change. But we also feel that there is no time to explore the alternatives and change already working routines, habits, and choices.
I found my compassion towards the Earth and my “whys.” Now my family is getting greener step by step, and I have found excellent options to replace some everyday supplies, routines, and habits. Everyone can do something to support our planet and our future generations, and it does not need to be difficult or time-consuming.
I hope that I can give you ideas and options to explore and choose. I want to support your willingness – and passion – to care for the Earth. Let’s spread the word and make changes for the Earth and us.
