Today is Blog Action Day, which means that fifteen thousand blogs with a combined total of twelve million readers are going to be publishing posts about the environment.
Since Iâ€™m always down to support a good cause, Iâ€™m going to participate by giving you DYH’s Simple Rule To Live By: Do Something.
Being green doesnâ€™t have to be a life changing decision. You donâ€™t need to sell your car and buy a Prius; you donâ€™t need to sell your Prius and buy a bike; and you certainly donâ€™t need to recycle your bike and start walking everywhere; you just need to do something.
Thatâ€™s because I believe that if everyone did something, then everything would change.
Because even small changes can make a difference.
Change a few light bulbs. Take a shorter shower. Recycle more. Drive less.
There are a million different things that you can do, so you just need to start doing them.
The key is to start small.
Soon, that single bulb will turn into a home full of CFLs, that shorter shower will turn into thousands of gallons of saved water, and that parked car will turn into a healthier you.
So just remember: Donâ€™t try to change the world by yourself; just do something, and the world will follow.
