    Doing your actions and taking small steps everyday that touches not just the needs of yours immediate family but your community, and your environment beyond the walls of your own apartment. Most of the people in jobs , in corporates struggle to think beyond their own personal saving and their immedite family needs. Being a good ancestor is about supporting your environment in its natural form and building a community with your service around it.

    reducing or stopping environmentally damaging behaviours and choices, plant a tree or ten, choosing to walk more, teaching whomever I can about environmentally supportive choices we can each make, supporting companies that are making positive environmental decisions - even if it costs a little more monetarily, taking ownership and responsibilities for past ignorance and make better choices moving forward, reminding myself that it may seem like too small a thing to matter - I am but one person, how can I make a difference? - but many little people making many small good choices will hopefully add up to big changes and even if my little steps don't make a big difference, I would rather leave this world knowing I was more part of the solution than part of the problem.
