HOW CAN I HELP MAKE CHANGE?
REDUCE CONSUMPTION, INCREASE PRODUCTION
almost everything you purchase has travelled to the destination you purchased it in via trucks or ships which burn massive amounts of oil. Buy less, think more. Buy local, and grow local when possible. If you don't have the space to garden, consider joining a community garden in your neighborhood.
bike, walk, utilize public transportation, skate, skip. All of these options are healthier for you and for the planet, and in most cases will save money while reducing oil consumption.
RE-USE, RE-CYCLE, RE-PURPOSE
find new purposes for old things. buy vintage and antique especially when the product is made well. Save money and the environment by finding new life for old furniture. Buy less plastic, use more glass and ceramics.
BE A LOCAL ACTIVIST
use your voice to inspire others to get involved. Educate about the simple changes people can make to sustain a green lifestyle and reduce their oil addiction.
