Re: Environmentalism 101: What you need to know to do your part
Overwhelming, isn't it, trying to decide where to start to improve the environment? Maybe this Environmentalism 101 starter check list will help.
put your retirement savings into a fund that invests in environmentally sound companies and start ups
use public transportation and work for clean transportation with your town or city (low emission buses, bike paths, etc.) work on national level for a national public transportation system and lowering of emissions from travel (lower speed limits, regular service stops for electric cars, etc.)
coordinate system between farmers and city customers:for local farmers to sell their produce, eggs, etc. in the inner city regions that have no access to fresh foods
stop building of parking lots, malls, box stores, etc. Put into place new green areas with plants and design that require lowest need for water
each week take one step forward in making your home and life more sensitive to the environment such as: Start using non phosphate clothes detergent; place solar panels on your roof for water heater, write a letter to your congressional representative on environmental topic. After one year and 52 steps forward: enjoy your progress!
