We hear Leonardo DiCaprio talk about it all the time… going green. What does that mean exactly? Drive an electric car? Get solar paneling on your roof? Be a vegan? While yes, all of those things would help our often neglected environment, it might seem overwhelming to most of us. You don’t have to change your entire world to make a difference.
It wasn’t like we ruined this planet overnight. The decline in our air quality and ecosystems have been an ongoing process over centuries. However, if we don’t take action, it’s only going to get worse. Instead of trying to reverse the damage by turning your entire life around, small changes can help. Small changes can teach others.
One day, you won’t be here, but your children and grandchildren will be. Teach them to take care of their world and all of its organisms. Show you care, even if you don’t think it will make a change. It’s good for your soul and sets a good example.
Try out these 6 things to help the planet. Happy Earth Day!
