If you consider yourself environmentally conscious, you are probably bombarded by statistics like this on your social media feed.
How many times you (and me) read it and actually take action ?
Do we need statistics after statistics, to prove that yes, climate change is real, or do we still need to argue with people online or offline that climate change is not fake news ? Or yes, it is indeed fake news ?
In my view, it is not about climate change, not even about animal cruelty. It is about self-discipline.
How much convenience are you willing to give up for a vegetarian option ? How much sweets are you willing to give up for peace within your craving mind ? How much shopping are you willing to give up for a hassle free lifestyle ?
This yet another research suggests only 1 out of 5 of us (I assume everyone reading this blog is from richer countries) go nearly vegan, agricultural system may absorb rather than emits by 2050. Is it correct ? I don't know. I don't even know what it means.
But if you are the lucky one living in richer countries, are you willing to be that change ? Are you willing to give up some convenience, some cravings, and do good for your overall health ?
Are you willing to build a greener community, to influence more people to taking action rather than talking about it ?
Be the change.
