Little Bits of Good


It seemed fitting that the inaugural post here at Green in Real Life be posted for World Environment Day (it is already Friday in our part of the world!). The 2015 theme of "Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care." has been bouncing around in my thoughts for the past few days. Seven billion. It boggles the mind, doesn't it?

Instead of despairing that my family's efforts will be lost in a giant seven billion (and growing) people's worth of waste and consumption, I have decided to be an optimist! Little changes add up to big differences, so if even a fraction of the world's population were making small changes like us, wouldn't it be wonderful? I was delighted to see the same sentiment echoed on the World Environment Day website, with the encouragement that every action counts reinforced through a quote from UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon "Although individual decisions may seem small in the face of global threats and trends, when billions of people join forces in common purpose, we can make a tremendous difference."  And so, we keep on with our small green(er) changes doing our little bits of good...
