    Like
    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.
