With 100 companies producing 70% of all carbon emissions,
the burden of responsibility needs to rest in the hands of major corporations and the government. Holding major corporations and our governments accountable for environmental degradation and climate change has the power to invoke large-scale action for our planet.
It is very difficult to live a sustainable or zero-waste lifestyle, but living as sustainably as you can is the best way to make a difference!
While small, individual actions like reducing waste and energy use are better for the Earth and can insight change, holding our governments and corporations accountable is much more effective. We encourage everyone to be a conscious consumer by thinking of each purchases’ implications on people and the environment, as well as being an advocate for our environment through social and political action.
