Get In Touch With Your Representatives
No matter where you are, you have a representative in government. You must get in touch with them and contact them about issues of sustainability and eco-efficiency. You need to ensure that your voice is heard and that they listen to their constituents. It’s easy to forget that congressmen and women and senators and even the president all work for you. If you are loud enough they all have to listen and while that may seem like a lost cause at the moment, it isn’t.
Particularly if as well as getting in touch yourself you drum up support on social media and get other people to do the same. It’s all very well making your home greener but unless legislation changes, a little green home really isn’t going to make that much of a difference.
Support Initiatives For The Future
There are initiatives right now that are being developed to ensure the future with sustainable options such as food sources. It’s true to say that food sources will need to change in the future. What form that will take isn’t yet clear. It could be lab-grown meat, or it might be aqua farms as some experts have suggested. Helping farmed salmon producers can ensure we are on the right path for sustainable food sources that are going to become vital sooner than you think. If we don’t act now, we will see food shortages in America in our child’s lifetime.
Vote With Your Wallet
Ultimately, you have to remember that the buyer is king. If you are tired of companies not being green enough, you have to show them that. It’s easy these days to find out what companies are doing the part for the environment and which aren’t doing nearly enough. Coca-cola, for instance, dumps a hundred billion plastic bottles every year and the plastic crisis is only growing. So, if you want to make sure that this changes, you have to send a message. Again, it’s not enough to just stop buying a product like this yourself. You have to make sure that other people do as well.
If you’re serious about a green future for the kids, these are the type of steps that must be taken today, not tomorrow.
Plastics are a HUGE issue. Start by getting rid of the disposables unless yourecycle. Get into the recycling habit. Reuse and repurpose when you can. Donate when you can.ReplyDelete
PS, please start approving comments :) I am in your contests and not sure these are being counted as I cant see them. Yes, I am from Iowa, so am rather tenacious too !
