OK, I borrowed this line from my daughter, but it sums up how I feel when I read articles that remind me being environmentally responsible gets even more complex every day like this one about knowing the product’s water footprint.
Now don’t get me wrong, I actually believe that water probably the most important issue that is not being addressed. I am concerned about the human impact, security issues, and the ability to provide potable drinking water to a large percentage of the population in the not-to-distant future. But I worry that the complexity of the issues may have people throwing up their hands in a state of overwhelm. That they will not even start with the small steps because of the enormity.
So I guess what I am really trying to say today is…don’t give up…keep doing whatever you can take on right now…it is good enough! Just acquaint yourself with the issues so you know which to address when you ready.
Let’s remember every step is movement in the right direction!
