Most recently I joined the Sustainability Committee at work so I asked myself why not think sustainably while I’m on Vacation too? Preserving that which has not yet been lost. Your “Carbon Footprint” can be reduced by thinking and going green so it’s a great idea to be environmentally responsible. After all we are the only solution to our problems.
My reason for writing this short essay is pretty simple. I feel that the world has everything to gain if we can LEARN to become environmentally responsible, which in turn means becoming responsible for what we leave behind for future generations. Everyone cannot be perfect in life yet education in sustainability and going green is necessary if we are going to be able to stop or reverse some of the devasting issues causing global warming and work with, not destroy, Mother Earth. Urgent attention needs to be given to our waters, wildlife, air and land.
