Our earth needs us right now. We as a globally united people, need each other right now. As we witness around us widespread devastation I feel an energy rising within us. A call to action. Climate change is real and we are seeing the devastating effects. The oceans are dying and filling up with plastic and toxic chemicals, temperatures are rising with fires increasing and the ecosystem is fractured and breaking down from the chemicals and harmful practices in manufacturing methods.
We are now witnessing mass deforestation and misuse of land, toxic levels of pollution, contaminated water sources, intensive and inhumane livestock breeding, mass animal slaughter, the export and dumping of industrial and electrical waste into developing countries, child and bonded labour, human rights abuses, inhumane working conditions all to fuel the fire of global and mass consumption. It is never too late to try and reverse things. Everything begins with awareness. Knowing and seeing what is going on plants a seed in our consciousness and stirs the invisible thread that unites us together. Collectively, we need to look at our choices, redefine what we thought we knew and work towards expanding our awareness through rigorous inquiry towards owning products that have transparency, the lowest environmental impact and a deep sense of compassion and social justice.
