I consider myself having an average eco-consciousness and basically continue doing things I grew up with to safe on energy etcetera. Seems the "green wave" that hit Northern Europe in the 1980s now finally made it over here.... If I could change one thing in the US, it would be planning cities bike and walk friendly which would also promote a better sense of community and weight loss! So how do I live and what do I do to promote sustainability?
--sharing an economy car between me and my husband
--biking or taking the bus to work as much as possible
--only using air conditioning when we are at home and actually need it
--recycling paper, glass, plastic bottles etcetera
--taking a basket and reusable bags with me for grocery shopping
--buying veggies and other things at a farmer's market
I don't know if I will make a difference in the world by doing these simple things, and am indeed rather pessimistic regarding our future given the larger political prospects in economies such as China..... Hope you all prove me wrong! I'm also hoping for a major science break through to help us living convenient but sustainable!
