12 years to reverse the effects of climate change…

12 years is it? That’s how long they’ve given us until we’ve screwed up the earth so much that we can’t go back. We’ve known about climate change for decades, maybe even over 100 years. But instead of taking responsibility for our actions we’ve actually ignored the natural disasters and record breaking temperatures and kept on living selfishly. I’m not perfect. For years I’ve driven a car knowing I should be getting public transport or walking instead. Being sucked into fast fashion while ignoring the welfare of the people that make it and adding to the huge amounts of clothing that are discarded every day. I grew up eating meat and dairy oblivious to what I was doing to my body and the earth. The difference with me is that once I understood this information I made drastic changes in my life. I’m not perfect and I’m not for one second pretending I am. But I’m working as hard as I can to live more in line with nature, to be more aware of my actions, to take steps in the right direction no matter how much more effort it seems. Because I know at the end of the day that it’s worth it. For this incredible place that we call home will not be here forever 🌍
