Strive for better but do your best

It can be pretty overwhelming delving into living a more sustainable life or continuing to reduce your impact on the world. We all have an obligation to do so and live alongside millions of other species but it’s certainly not just up to us. We’re in an exceptionally complex system with so many moral dilemmas and choices we can’t reconcile or get out of. Companies and governments are nowhere near pulling their weight. Many individuals are taking far more action in their own lives than our policy-makers are creating.⁠

Do your best, use your voice, influence, call your local politicians, attend protests, write, rally your neighbors, and be kind to yourself. Gather your group of friends (sometimes this means creating a whole new one which can be one of the hardest things as an adult), cry, rant, laugh and keep going. You’ve got this.⁠
