Mindful Living in 2023 - It's time to take action.
"The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it."
~ Robert Swan
This quote from Robert Swan sums up the importance of living more sustainably. It’s not someone else’s problem to solve climate issues, instead, it starts with everyone making a change. A positive change will compound exponentially if everyone gets on board, however the same is true with the opposite. If everyone thinks that another person can work to save our planet, then no one is doing anything!
The change you make to live more sustainably does not have to be drastic. If everyone made one small change to their daily life, it could make a big difference.
Before we get into some ways to live more sustainably, here are the current facts:
There are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean. Of that mass, 269,000 tons float on the surface, while some four billion plastic microfibers per square kilometer litter the deep sea (National Geographic).
The United States ranks #2 in pollution by country at 4,715,568,000 tons
Every year, U.S. landfills are filled with 139.6 million tons of waste, including 30.63 million tons of food. 26.82 million tons of plastic. 18.35 million tons of paper and paperboard (Dumpster.com).
Here are some ways to live more sustainably and help these numbers decline
