Global warming, overconsumption and waste of resources. When is it all going to end? Well, hopefully not before it’s too late. We got to stop caring so much about fulfilling our own needs for novelty and start seeing the bigger picture.
Humans have always been longing for novelties and desired the newest things. However, these desires have consequences. It’s not impossible for us to keep up with the latest trends and change our wardrobes, interior and cars from time to time. However, there are two ways to do this. Either you make conscious choices and try to live as sustainable as possible or you keep on caring about yourself and close your eyes on sustainability.
What people do in the West, reflects on the people in the East. To say otherwise would just be foolish. There are landfill and waste in the water that make life unbearable to some, and to others it’s not visible. Especially if you decide not to look at it.
We Can Make a Difference
We all need to make a change. Now more than ever the environment is depending of us and we need to start making smart choices and create sustainable lives for ourselves. Start looking into your consumption habits. Do you really need to shop as often as you do? And do you really know where your clothes have been made? Or who has made them? Do you really need all the latest tech features, and if you feel like you do, why not cut down on something else? Try to buy more second hand, organize clothes swapping events for your friends and start reflecting on what you can do to make the world a better place.
When Neil Armstrong first experienced the moon in and on its natural habitat, these words were uttered by him:
That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.
Let’s take that phrase and its meaning with us when we start building our new sustainable lives. Even though you don’t see the difference you’ll make in the world, doesn’t mean that you aren’t affecting it positively. Alone it’s hard to make a change, but together we can make anything possible.
