To My Family,

It is 2019 and climate change, sea level rise, over population, high rates of consumption of natural resources and single use products are major topics of discussion. I have reduced my use of single-use plastics by using silicone, metal and paper straws as a substitution. I have quit buying bottles water and invested in a PURfilter. I am taking small steps in my daily life in an attempt to improve the quality of life for future generations and our Earth. I try to share my opinions and ideas with you all in hopes that you will see the small impact that you can have on reducing the unsustainable ways of the world. I promise to continue taking the small steps that hopefully lead to a big change.
