If your recycling then your doing your bit and ensuring that your
contribution towards the environment is a positive one. In short
your an asset to the environment and your input will be appreciated
by your grandchildren in years to come. However, imagine how much
more impact you could have if you managed to get others to do the
same as you.
That's right, rather than just doing your bit why not get others
to follow suit? You could get your family and friends to do the
same thing, and then get them to get their friends to recycle and
so on. In doing so the impact of your actions could multiply exponentially.
If you ensure that you do your bit, and do your best to get others
on board then the problem of environment change could well be one
that has less ramifications than it looks like it might if things
continue as they are now. Make sure that you can say you've done
your bit, and that you get as much people as you can on board.
