I strive for a society that treats the earth with respect, that cares for all the species we share our home with, and that respects one another. I work towards a society of people that make decisions based on the greater good of all rather than themselves. Do you dream of this and work for this? If so, this article may be of service to you. This is my guide on how to influence and inspire others to be good to the earth. I hope that it proves to be very beneficial to you!
If you are here, then you are probably a caring human being. You probably would like to make a difference. You’re probably aware of the inequality on Earth, the environmental destruction, and the millions of people who need help.
But you may feel helpless. You may feel un-empowered. You may be scared to do something about your feelings.
These YouTube Channels have been a great part of my transformation from a drunk dude to a dude making a difference. Through them I have learned about many of the pressing environmental and social issues of our time and how I can be a part of the solution. They’ve also given me the inspiration to follow through on the knowledge that I had gained. I share these with you to help you become a leader in your city and your country to lead the way to a happier, healthier existence for us all. I’ve also shared some of my all time favorite YouTube videos from these channels. Enjoy!
A few weeks ago I was contacted by this guy from a website called SoCal Sessions. He wanted to interview me about sustainable living. I said sure come on over and we had a nice morning walking the beach and talking. He was an interesting guy and had a really nice beard. Today I got an email from him and I thought I would share it.
Over the years many people have asked how they can help me with my mission. My answer is usually something along the lines of, the greatest way that you can help me is to simply lead by example and do what you know is right for the earth, your community, and yourself. Be a positive influence on others and inspire the people around you to live a more conscious and earth friendly life. To do this you must educate yourself and then you must take action upon what you learn. Dedicate yourself to whatever it is that you are most passionate about.
Just 600 years ago it would take about 1,000 days to circumnavigate the world and you would most likely die trying. Today most people with a plastic credit card can fly around the entire world in a comfortable seat in just over 2 days. We’ve grown from 1 billion in population in the early 1800’s, just 200 years ago, to over 7 billion today.
Over the last five years I’ve found that living more sustainably goes hand in hand with living a better life for myself. The more I focus on reducing my impact on the earth the happier and healthier that I find myself to be. It seems that being good to the earth is tied directly to being good to ourselves. What we do to our bodies, we do to the earth. Transitioning to a more earth-friendly lifestyle doesn’t have to be a chore or a bore, rather it can be very fun and exciting! Here’s 11 ways to live sustainably and feel great! Oh, and by the way this will save you a lot of money too.
I’m very excited to announce that I was invited to do a TEDx talk at the TEDxTeen event in London in January. At first I was unsure if the environmental impact of the flight was worthy but after some thinking I decided that I can make it worth it. There were no direct flights so I have decided to spend some time in each of the cities I am passing through to pass on some inspiration. In each city I’ll be presenting The Food Waste Fiasco and discussing how you can work to end hunger and food waste in your city. For the entire week l I will be at the service of the people in the cities I visit so please contact me if you’d like to do some good together. I’ll have a little free time in each city and would love to get together.
