Environmental destruction has been an important conversation over the past few decades. Much of the world is choosing to turn a blind eye to environmental destruction, but those who are educated with accurate information and choose not to fall victim to bias understand that it is a critical situation. Environmental destruction, in the form of green house gases, carbon emissions, pollution and toxicity are responsible for rising global temperatures, species extinctions and disease across the globe. If we do not reverse the trend of environmental destruction that is sweeping the planet, earth could become unlivable to all species, including ourselves.
The best way to help this problem is by becoming active. There are many things you can do to change your own lifestyle that will positively impact the global environmental crisis, as well as making your opinions heard to lawmakers and legislators who can affect widespread environmental policies. Personally, things you can do to help the environment are recycle, compost, grow your own food, buy food that is certified to be ethical, sustainable, local and organic, ride a bike or walk instead of driving a car, retrofit your home for sustainable energy usage and actively conserve energy and power in your home.
Be sure to communicate your message of hope to others in a variety of methods. A T-shirt advertising your environmentalism is a great way to spread the word, start conversations and get others on board. An activist T-shirt is something that can go with you anywhere and leave an impression on a variety of people. In doing so, you will make your own stance on environmentalism clear as well as make others think and come to conclusions on their personal stances. Many people are on the cusp of change but have not taken the plunge yet. They need the examples that other people set in order to commit. Be part of the change you want to see in the world and get the word out about environmentalism!
