Imperfect Action Towards a Sustainable Lifestyle
Being an imperfect environmentalist makes you a better environmentalist. Coming to terms with imperfection makes you a better environmentalist than upholding yourself to a higher standard that is not recognizable to you.
Start by slightly altering your daily routine and using what you already have. Taking small steps to achieve big goals is key to success. And remember to always do what works for you. Listen to your mind and your body. This is your journey.
There’s always something you can do better or greener and it’s important not to beat yourself up about it. If you’re doing what you can, then that’s all that matters. There’s often a lot of offset impacts that’s out of our control, but that doesn’t mean our efforts or lifestyle choices are no longer making a difference.
It is both appropriate and possible to make the most of what you have around you and do the best you can. Just being aware of your environmental impact is enough. Sustainability should not be about sacrificing, but about making small positive changes and thinking a little differently. It’s about making the best decisions you possibly can with the things, places and people you have access to and the tools you already have.
