You know what sort of ticks me off? When people talk about how severe the environmental issues are and claim that sadly they can’t do anything. I know we as individuals can’t make governments come up with stricter rules or ban stuff that clearly is toxic for the environment and us. But we can do our thing. Little by little. One step at a time. It’s easy to shove responsibility to the government. The responsibility is yours. If you want change you can have it. You can change some simple things and you will have an impact. Not only on the environment but also on what governments will do in the future.
We can sign petitions like #banthebag or simply refuse using plastic bags and alternatively use a bag made of fabric. And then reuse it. One simple step with a massive impact!
Did you know that plastic bags are used on average for 12 minutes? But they have a life expectancy of up to 1’000 years!
Don’t be lazy. Don’t forget to bring a bag. Look at what an impact that single change in your life can have. And it won’t even hurt you!
