What if we all lived an eco friendly green lifestyle?
What if instead of destroying, polluting, and depleting we lived in harmony with nature? What if our presence actually enhanced our natural world instead of harming it?
Today most human activity on the planet is harmful to nature. We are quickly using up natural resources such as trees, fossil fuels, and clean water while we poison the ground with chemical fertilizers, garbage, herbicides, and factory waste.
There are very few other species that benefit from sharing the earth with us - certainly not wild animals whose natural habitats are quickly being consumed by our hunger for more of everything. Not domesticated chickens or hogs who live out their short miserable lives in the tiny cages of factory farms.
Definitely not any fish in the great oceans of the world who are becoming so contaminated with mercury and other heavy metals that they are no longer even safe for us to eat.
We tend to think of ourselves as just living on the planet, as seperate from our environment rather than integral to it. But in actual fact we are intimately connected to the world around us. When we harm our environment, we eventually harm ourselves.
Things could be so much different. We are extremely intelligent creatures capable of so much more.
Some days I used to just despair helpless at the tragic destruction of nature until I realized that each person can make a difference. Each one of us makes a small impact that helps move things in the right direction.
I realized I could no longer blame "humans" or "companies" or "industrialization".
I realized it was me. I realized I needed to live differently and learn how I could be a healing force instead of a harmful destructive force.
I needed to find out how to do this from where I am right now - a mom living in a city, with kids who need to go to school and a house and lawn to care for and a large supermarket as my food source and a mall as a place to buy clothing and supplies.
I can't just go live in a tent and pick berries. I have to figure out how to live an eco friendly green lifestyle where I am now. And its not always an easy thing. But I believe in small things, small changes mattering and adding up.
We each have a circle of people who are influenced by us - by what we say and do and how we live. One by one we can change how we live.
Eco green living is already gaining popularity and is even fashionable in some circles. Once enough people understand why it is so important to change the way we live eco green living will then become the norm.
I believe that we are already getting to the stage where we may soon have a critical mass of people who are committed to living an eco friendly green lifestyle. Once this happens, eco friendly green living becomes entrenched as a value system held by many in a society, and then the power for change can be non-stoppable.
Please join me and so many others who are committed to living differently and making a change!
