GREENPEACE

No wonder we’re confused.

Working in climate and environment, you hear this question a lot. On one hand, environmental groups — including Greenpeace — will tell you that every action you take can make a difference. Every action counts! On the other, editorials and experts will tell you that it doesn’t matter what you do in your everyday life, because the problem can’t be solved by individual action. They may claim that its  a cop out and lets corporations off the hook, because the problem lies with the broken but deeply entrenched system we’re caught in. After all, 70% of emissions are created by 100 companies, right?

Small signals can spark hope and search for others to build communities that take action. When the community takes action, it becomes more resilient, therefore more independent and sufficient.

  1. thank you for this post. Every action you take can make a difference it can if it feeds back to the people it needs to feed back to.
    I’m constantly irritated by the amount of plastic there still is in food wrappings, cling film, and bubble wraps and envelopes. I put recyclable stuff into bags yet still I need a bag for unrecyclable plastic materials and where does it go? Has anything really changed?
