We must consciously think about our planet and the ‘universe’ as we go about our daily lives, think about global warming and how we’re contributing to problems with the planet; we must do more.
We must consciously think about things as we’re doing them. For example, do you remember to switch your outside house light off when you go to bed? Do you really need to wash your wool jumper in the washing machine by itself?
Do you remember to turn the light off when you’re leaving a room? It may be a mental block more than a bugbear, but it’s something we must remember to do. In the same token, we must be more environmentally friendly.
We must use less paper and recycle more; make sure we’re using the right light bulbs; choose cloth over paper; use canvas bags instead of using plastic, eat less meat; use a compost bin for food waste; reduce water waste; live a greener life; and do without one more luxury.
These are things we never think about, but they affect us all and our planet. They are things that we need to continually think about and focus on, or they will affect our children and their children’s future. We must be more selfless, less selfish.
