How do you live in the space you occupy in this world? Today is Blog Action Day and I've got a different rant about environmental issues. It's personal.
While there is much to be done by our governments, I believe each of us must act on an individual level. We're not as conscientious as we could be. Let's take some personal responsibility for our environments.
Clean up our homes, our streets and our habits. Our environment is a direct result of our attitudes and actions. Legislation must be pushed through by citizens who care, AND we could all act more responsibly in our own environments.
I believe that charity and health begins at home and each of us can contribute to a healthy world in our own ways. For myself, I choose not to drink alcohol, take drugs, smoke cigarettes or consume unhealthy foods manufactured in factories and fast food dives... I also believe in taking responsibility for physical health through plenty of exercise.
How are you taking care of your own environment? Do you pay attention to your personal environment? Do you act with care for your home, business and local area? Or are you counting on Al Gore and politicians to clean up after you? Laws are necessary, AND we don't have to wait for them.
Act locally, think globally. Use today, Blog Action Day, to consider how you can improve your own environment.
As always, Brian Clark of Copyblogger wrote eloquently about this problem and what you can do about it; don't mis his post The Butterfly Effect and the Environment.
