I found sustainability on YouTube. I came across the term zero waste and must’ve watched a few hours of content right there and then! I was so fascinated by the conscious choices that people could make to do their part in helping the planet 🌍. It’s been over a year since that day and I’ve learned SO much about sustainability, environmentalism and climate justice. So now I try to paint a more realistic view of sustainability and explain things that I wish I had known when I first started my journey!
Climate change is integrated deeply in the systems that govern our countries and the world. I used to be convinced that the best way to reverse climate change was to become vegan, produce zero waste, and be a perfect sustainability gal. While small individual changes can amount to a massive movement we need people fighting from all angles! Regenerative farming, slow fashion, policy change, carbon taxes, food justice, air quality control and so much more! I wish I had known more of this in the beginning of my journey, but the beautiful thing about being in this space is finding other people who you can learn from. Above else I don't want to stop learning and knowing that there will always be a space for me and you here in the fight to save the planet <3
My sustainability tip is just to do what you can, with what you’ve got and where you’re at. Sustainability looks different on everyone! so practice what works best for you with what you’ve got!
