Welcome to Green Choice Matters
The everyday things that we do impact the world in more ways than most of us can even begin to imagine. But most of us do not think about the world outside of the immediate environment of where we live and work. And who can blame us? After all, many of us lead busy and complicated lives. Regardless, our personal experiences, economics, relationships - our life circumstances as a whole - play a crucial role in our everyday choices. And, these decisions matter.
Everything we do in our daily lives comes with a price, often in the form of an expense that we may not see or feel right away. Instead, these costs are externalized to other areas that impact our world in numerous ways. Air, land, and water pollution, resource extraction, and far more place our environment and ecosystems, our natural resources, and ultimately our health at significant risk. It is unfortunate that it is the externalization of costs combined with government subsidies that keep our economy going. But is the low price we pay upfront for so much of what we (often wastefully) consume worth the long-term environmental, health, and financial burdens that are placed elsewhere?
The fact that you are here reading this says that you know this, at least on some level, and are looking to learn more. For this, I both applaud and thank you for being here. After all, this is a huge first step on your journey towards creating an earth-friendly and sustainable lifestyle.
Before you move on to other pages, please take a few moments to ponder the following questions to help discover your personal "why's." What is it that matters most to you? Is it your health or the health of a loved one? Our depleting natural resources? Rising Sea Levels? Global warming and climate change? An endangered species? Could it be any combination of these or is it a different concern or curiosity? Interestingly, it's all connected! And we will cover how it is all connected over time through many upcoming blog posts.
Regardless of your motivation, you have the power to make a real difference that impacts more than just yourself. Thank you for your interest in Green Choice Matters. If you enjoyed what you read, and would like to grow with us as Environmental Contributors, please be sure to Follow us on Facebook!
