Natural resources are quickly growing scarce with the current trends across the globe. Due to this, it is imperative that people adopt more “green” lifestyles. While this should ultimately be done on corporate levels, change starts small, meaning that by changing our idiosyncrasies-we can change the world.

This doesn’t mean swearing off energy or adopting a completely primitive lifestyle, but rather to take more consideration for how simple things can have a major impact. This means lowering waste and moving towards a more recycle heavy narrative. Or on an even simpler level, cutting down on plastic use in every way possible. Change never starts big.

This alone can help push companies to normalize the use of paper over plastic or to conserve waste as material. While this won’t solve the issue by any means, it’s a step in the right direction.
