Do you ever worry about the environment?

 

Do you ever think about what kind of world we’re leaving for the next generation?

 

Do you ever ponder global warming/microplastics/destruction of the rain forest?

 

I’m guessing most people would answer yes to these questions, and I’d say, ‘me too.”

 

But then…

 

…I start thinking, “these problems are enormous. I’m just one person,” and I’ll forget about it and get on with my day. There’s some super smart people in the world somewhere working on it anyway, right?

In 2017 my little family packed up and moved to the Shark Bay World Heritage Area. As you would expect, discussion about environment issues are commonplace and there are plenty of local ‘eco-warriors’ doing amazing things to encourage positive change. I feel inspired to do…

well…

something.

 

I’m just a regular person. I don’t have any expertise in this area. I have two young boys. I don’t have a lot of time (or, quite frankly, the energy) to commit to a group or cause right now. I don’t have the budget to make any big changes towards self-sufficiency. It’s all in the too hard basket.

 

Recently, however, a friend shared an info-graphic:

“Single Use Swaps” by Alexandra Case

What jumped out at me was the quote (Van Gogh?) featured on the left-hand side:

The people who make the biggest difference are the ones who do little things consistently.

You know what? I CAN do little things. I CAN make the effort to do them consistently. I CAN make a big impact.

 

It’s time to learn how to make some small changes.

 

I hope you will follow along, because you CAN too.
