10 Things You Can Do Now

We depend on the Earth so we better start taking care of it. Every day we are given the option to make positive change for the future of our planet. Don’t ever let someone tell you that one person can’t make a difference! The truth is that for centuries it has always been the action of one person that inspires the action of many.

Be a leader in your community and do what you can to reduce the misuse and overuse of our natural resources. We are not entirely to blame; we inherited a polluted Planet Earth and are seeing the consequences of the decisions made by previous generations. Luckily we have all the tools we need to ensure that our children can grow up in a cleaner, safer planet than ourselves!

Making a difference for the future of Planet Earth doesn’t have to include huge life changing choices!! Some of the most important things are simple lifestyle changes that, if we can all commit to, will create a huge reduction in our ecological footprint.
