Let us not forget the Eco-conscious, those who toil and suffer over making this world a better place. You are not alone. We care about this planet just as much as you do. There are many statistics that claim we are destroying the world. That our bad habits and poor judgment contribute to what is causing a decline to the ozone and the deforestation of many of our rain forests. Are we truly the culprits or are we just the scape goats holding a smart phone in one hand and a latte in the other?
No matter what the experts and conspiracy theorists say, we are all the end result of this turbulent roller coaster ride. They say that the Midwest was once the tropics. Today it snows. Are we to blame our ancestors for such a change? Most of us understand the aches and pains of shoveling snow each winter. Through this action alone (yes, something as mundane as shoveling snow) we can see how persistent we are. The true essence of being human is our ability to adapt.
We see the changes happening to our climate each year. We see the Eco-conscious doing their part to help, bringing awareness to others who are just too busy to act. We see new products that are both functional and Eco-friendly at our super markets and home service centers. We see this change in our personalized stationery items made by 100% recycled materials.
There is a lot of work to be done, a lot of doors to knock on and many minds to shape. We should remain optimistic – even if Mayan prophecy says otherwise – the countdown begins…There might be hope for all of us just yet.
