This week was World Environment day, there are many days like this in our year, and truly there needs to be, our earth needs protecting, the governments I feel who have the power do not use it. As individuals, we have little power but together we can help.
I read somewhere it is better millions of us recycle, reuse, avoid plastic, eat less meat and use local produce, imperfectly, rather than just a few doing it perfectly.
Overshoot is another important day, last year it was August 1st, this year it's predicted to be 31st July, so what's another day, that's not the question.
Why do we need the resources of 2.7% earths to sustain us each year.
Last year the UK overshoot day was May 8th.
2019 UK overshoot day May 17th, pleasing improvement.
It is so natural for us to carry shopping bags, and cotton produce bags when we purchase food, this one small thing has stopped the production of millions of single use plastic bags.
I do believe if we all do something, we can make a difference, people power did more quicker regarding the use of plastic drinking straws, so even if you feel your contribution is not enough, just remember the statement I quoted above, which is here again.
It is better millions of us recycle, reuse, avoid plastic, eat less meat and use local produce, imperfectly, rather than just a few doing it perfectly.
I did a post last year here, I am really pleased to know we have made improvements on our list.
