But What Can I Do?

*This is a Sponsored Post*

I have always been concerned with the environment. It may have had to do with that commercial where the Indian stands alongside the road and cries a single tear; it may have had to do with reading about the problems involved in mining and processing coal and uranium; it may have had to do with reading up on Shamanism. Whatever the actual reasoning behind why I care so much for the environment is not exactly clear, but it is a real feeling. I’m not going to go all Al Gore on you or anything - and never have - I mean, I’m as guilty of pollution as anyone else, but I’m glad to see that more and more people are becoming aware. Of course, there is a long way to go, and I would love to see more people take the reigns and seek to educate others as to how to be more mindful of the environment and why it is so important.
