As I sit here watching the Virtual Climate Summit, I cannot help but feel a sense of positivity. As a citizen of the United States, it is refreshing to see my nation re-establish itself in a position of climate positivity. The last few years have been disheartening to say the least. Knowing my leaders are striving to heal our planet is a wonderful feeling! We have a long way to go, but at least I know they are moving forward and not back!
Earth Day is always a wonderful day, but I always wish that every day was Earth Day to everyone! I am sure many of you feel the same. That is what it will take, a year long effort every year from billions of people. Not because of individualized responsibility, you an I using less straws or water will not make the impact we need. Our force comes from forcing companies to reconcile their negative impacts with a positive future! Whether that is by boycotting polluting brands or shaping the mindset of their future leaders, a daily thought process of helping the planet is what will create a sustainable world!
Together we will get through this!
