The Power of NO!
NO to the extra shirt, or pants, or blouse or household gadget,
NO to lavish and extra packaging … and the extra plastic bag.
NO to keeping up with the ‘Joneses’ with a consumer oriented materialistic lifestyle and
NO to the craving for speciality food from across the seas;
NO to driving short distances instead of walking or cycling,
NO to taking the elevator instead of the stairs.
NO to putting the air-conditioner on all night and
NO to that extra light I can do without.
NO to a manicured lawn in lieu of trees.
NO to throwing what I can recycle or reuse.
Would you imagine that these simple ‘NO’S” of mine, if said often enough will reduce my carbon footprint and alter the course of history?
I invite you to look around, be aware and alert, check the many ways your personal NO can alter the course of history.
And share them here if you like so that together we can care for our planet.
It is OUR World. OUR Responsibility.
