There are all sorts of science fiction stories about moving to Mars or living on some other better world that is a currently unknown planet, but as of right now, this world is the only one we have, which is why it’s so important to make sure that we take care of it. Unfortunately unlike most cultures that came before us, most of our generation seems to feel that the earth will always replenish itself, and that we’ll always have ample water and food. This is far from the truth, and is something that we need to recognize. If you want to have a better world, not only for us but also for our children, it’s important that we start taking steps to ensure that it stays healthy.
One of the best ways to get the world to be a better place isn’t to do good and eco-friendly things yourself, even though this is a good thing, but to spread the word to others. If you work on power saving measures, such as shutting off lights when you leave the world and switching to energy efficient bulbs, you’re saving a small piece of the world. Imagine how much you could change if you convinced twenty people to do the same thing, and if those twenty people convinced twenty more people. Before you know it you’ll have an army of people who are trying to create a better world.
But when you’re trying to convince other people to do things like try eco food or trying to teach them how making better terra is important, you have to be careful. If you push too hard they’ll simply think that you’re one of those “crazy” people who wants to change everyone and everything that they see. Instead of being pushy you have to be friendly and suggestive. Show them how much better your life is by doing things that can propagate peace and that can create a better world. Let them see how much your light bill goes down when you put in energy efficient light bulbs or how huge your garden grows when you make your own fertilizer. Once people start to realize how much better your life is, and how much you’re helping the earth, they’ll start to make little changes as well, which can truly make an impact on the world. By simply helping them to see how you’ve made a change, you’ll convince them to create a better world as well.
