Luckily today it is relatively straight forward for the average person and family who desire to live a more sustainable way of life to go green.
The go green movement has been building with tremendous momentum and has captured the imagination of millions of people from many cultures and nationalities from all over the world and will gradually engulf the entire planet.
The go green concept can be adapted to almost every aspect of our daily lives with each individual action collectively counting towards the larger whole.
Whether your go green contribution is cycling to work in place of using the car, purchasing organic produce rather than the traditionally pesticide treated food or installing power saving energy efficient devices in the home, each action that we take becomes an important contribution towards sustainable living.
In the not too distant future with populations expected to grow to all time levels the increase and demand for consumption will put an ever increasing burden on society, nature and her limited supplies of raw materials.
It has therefore become a matter of urgency that the go green concept in all forms is publicised to the greatest of degrees possible.
Even though every person’s effort and action makes a difference without the larger masses turning away from old habits and enjoining the new the go green process may just arrive too late.
The small and large corporations, local authorities and Governments need to lead the charge and in doing so we as individuals and family groups will follow suit.
The choosing of the types of materials we use, the manufacturing process and the desired end product needs to be revisited and where possible more sustainable and environmentally conscious methods need to substitute the old ways.
No longer can we afford to ignore the destruction and war that man has laid on nature, no longer can we blame the other person or group.
If every one of us only took ten actions that produced a greener result we would have moved a long way forward in correcting our wrongs.
Eventually mankind as a whole will live in harmony with nature and no longer be faced with the necessity to make as much profit within the shortest amount of time.
We will have gained the knowledge on how to totally live a sustainable life and in many instances this will take shape by returning to older and more traditional materials and ways of doing things.
The depletion of our natural resources will come to a halt as new technologies enable us to reach our desired goal.
The go green concept will no longer be a mantra for the future but will exist in our everyday lives. Clean air, unpolluted water supplies and organic produce will be the norm. Illness too in many cases will disappear as our move towards a healthier way of life will change the way in what and how disease affects us.
Medicines may become more holistic and the dependency on man-made cures will lessen.
The encouragement to go green, the knowledge and way forward must be made available immediately and therefore your contribution is all that more important!
