How to Overcome the Fear to Live an Earth Friendly Lifestyle

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.

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.
