When I was younger I was unknowingly contributing to the throwaway society we live in today. I was buying things I didn’t need and using items once before throwing them away. As I got older I started to see how much waste I was producing and started to understand how my actions where part of the problem. I decided to take ownership of my part in this unsustainable way of living. I knew there had to be a better way, but I didn’t know where to start.
The more I looked, the more I started to see how bad things had become. I saw the pollution all around me, rubbish bins overflowing, and what have we done to our beautiful beaches.
But I didn’t know how I could help.
The more I researched sustainable living, the more I knew there was a better way. Why wasn’t everyone talking about finding a solution? Why weren’t we teaching about these issues in our schools? The only lesson I learned was how to recycle rubbish. I now know this is just a band-aid, and I know we need to start talking about the problems.
This is now my passion, and I want to do all I can to educate and help others who want to make a positive change. I know how hard it can be wanting to make difference but not knowing where to start. That’s why I wanted to not only educate but also create a community of likeminded people who want to work together to find the answers and stop being part of the problem.
