Why you should feel compelled to reduce your footprint
It’s no secret that humans are suffocating our planet. The mere notion that this is “fake news” is simply unacceptable. From carbon emissions, to plastic and garbage pollution, mankind has now rightfully earned the title as the most dangerous threat to Earth. As humans, we have an innate desire for beauty and mystery. As a millennial species, we have a desire for convenience and comfort. These two combining forces have paved a path for disaster and destruction on a global scale. Forests are being burned by the hectare for palm oil, an ingredient found in nearly everything in your pantry and bathroom. Carbon emissions continue to destroy our permeable atmosphere that protects us from, well… everything. Glaciers formed long before man walked the Earth, are melting and disappearing. Wide accumulations of plastic that cannot biodegrade due to its chemical structure (that humans formulated for this very purpose) have formed LITERAL islands of trash in our oceans. Over a million marine life animals die each year because of plastic and trash pollution. These are not speculations, they are not theories- they are FACTS.
The greatest threat to Earth is the belief that someone else will save it.
