Have you ever asked yourself “Is Climate Change Real?” or “Is Global Warming Real?”? If so, you aren’t alone. I know that nothing strikes a nerve more with some greenies that climate change isn’t real. While I know there are changes happening to our climate right now, I’m not sure of what I believe about global warming/climate change. It’s hard for me to believe that we are doomed and life as we know it will be drastically different in the near future.
Here’s what I do believe:
I think that if we all live more “green”, we can conserve our resources, live more simply, and leave this world a better place for the next generation. And, like the cartoon above states, what’s the worst thing that can happen if we actually start living more green?
I like making a lot of my own beauty products because I can use pure, natural ingredients and control what I am putting on my body.
I like eating whole, natural foods (organic when possible) because I believe the more natural the state of food is, the more nourishing it is for your body, the better you feel, and the healthier you are. I also think organic farming practices are much more respectful to our planet.
I like making my own cleaning products from natural ingredients because they cost far less than commercial cleaners, are better for the environment, and don’t cause irritations.
I like living a simple life and being a non-consumer whenever possible because it is less stressful and there is more joy in the small things.
I like thrifting and buying clothes from thrift stores because it not only saves me money, but it also keeps clothes out of the landfill and saves resources because not as many clothes are manufactured.
I don’t base my decisions on living a green life on climate change or global warming. I definitely feel better about things when I live more ‘green’!
What do you think about global warming/climate change? Do you think it’s a hoax?
