The important thing to remember is that, if we all make an effort, we can make a difference.
If one person convinced two new people to reduce their environmental footprint, and those two people each convinced two new people to reduce theirs, and so on, in 20 days, a population the size of Edinburgh would be on board. In 24 days, a population the size of Scotland would join the movement; in 27 days, a population the size of the UK would join; and in 31 days, a population the size of Europe would join. In fact, after only 34 days the entire planet’s human population could be convinced. In just over a month, we might begin to try and undo the negative impact we have had on the planet up to this point.
Of course, it isn’t quite as easy as that, but this highlights the power of education, communication and conversation. Challenge yourself to make your own difference, even if you take small steps at a time. Once you have started, why not try and bring your friends and family on board as well?
