It is a wonder that we have not managed to reduce our own population by the same quantity, as we are evidently intent on self destruction at some point or another, by some method or another.....
Any little thing no matter how small you may think it is can help, remembering to take a shopping bag to the market, starting a compost bin then putting that compost on your own garden, shopping locally from local producers to reduce food miles or in fact any product miles. There are many local people who make things that we use every day without us having to resort to products made in China every single time we go to the shops. I expect if you sat down and thought about it you would know plenty of people.
Or if you are having a wealthy moment in your life install a solar panel (on my list of things to do), buy an electric car, which by the way saved us 2000 euros on fuel last year. Now that is a lot of money and a lot of clean air in Eygurande et Gardedeuil.
All things are possible one just needs to think outside the box and then have a conversation/heated debate with someone about the possibilities/practicalities.
It is long past time to be motivated and to hold yourself accountable for your own life and I am no saint myself, however, we do need to change and we need to do it soon. Below is commuter parking in Holland at the train station. And what a gloriously quiet town Tilburg was without all the cars rushing everywhere.
See you all soon
