Who would have predicted six months ago that we would be wearing masks when we go out? Yet now wearing a mask has become not only an important health measure but a symbol that each of us can be part of the solution to the Covid-19 crisis.
Individual actions are important in fighting climate change too. When you give up plastic straws you are helping save over a million seabirds per year that choke on plastic straws that they mistake for food. When you take public transportation or bike instead of driving a car you are moving public policy away from fossil-fuel based systems. When you take public action like taking reusable bags into a store you send a signal to others that they can be part of the solution on climate change. When we all take small actions we can make a big difference. What actions will you choose?
