There are a lot of people today that are waking up and realizing the negative impact that their lives have on the earth, on the other creatures we share the earth with, as well as on humans in far off lands. Just living out our daily lives causes destruction; from the car we drive, to the food we eat, to the clothes that we wear. Most of our actions have been monetized and are in the hands of companies that put profit over people and the planet. Knowing all of this and actually acting on it are two very different things though. Often it is fear of the unknown and fear of what others will think that stops us from making the changes that we know will cure the pain in our gut. The pain I speak of is that of knowing our life is unfair to other people or animals whose land is being destroyed indirectly by our actions. It’s a pain of knowing that we should make a change but not doing it. I use to feel it a lot, but I decided that I wasn’t going to continue on causing destruction in all of my daily actions. I took a stance and changed my life for the benefit of the earth, other species, the human race, and myself. Today I’m sharing with you my advice on how to overcome the fear to live an earth-friendly lifestyle.
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!
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.
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.
People ask me about health insurance, old age, and death pretty frequently. I think these are extremely important things to talk about but I haven’t had too much to say in the past. It’s a tough thing to talk about, but it’s got to be talked about. So here’s my thoughts.
None of these things require you to have a penny in your pocket but can bring you a great wealth of happiness, health, and freedom! I highly encourage you to incorporate more of this into your life and less of the things that cost money!
Man, do we have a lot of it. Most of us know we’ve got far more than we need but with the abundance of stuff on the market and ridiculously cheap prices it’s a real challenge to keep it at bay. You might know this already but if not, brace yourself. Most stuff causes serious environmental harm and likely harm to fellow humans as well. I never looked at stuff the same after watching The Story of Stuff. I encourage you to watch this before continuing on.
