Saving the Planet
What are we doing as individuals to save the planet? Emily asked that the other night. We are seeing the havoc we are wreaking on our planet. Water levels are rising, the summers are getting hotter and the winters are getting colder, the icebergs are melting, and much more.
How do we all do our part? Lego just announced that the companies first sustainable blocks will be made from plant-based plastic that comes from sugarcane. Many clothing manufacturers are turning to recycled materials. States are requiring (or allowing) groceries to charge for a bag making consumers think about bringing their own bag to the store. I think we should ban styrofoam as a product but that is another conversation.
What are we doing? We are using solar panels in every single project we are building. In one of the projects, we are using geothermal power for heat and air conditioning. We drive electric cars. We are building a passive building including energy sources that will essentially allow us to be able to use our own electricity. I have invested in companies like Evrnu that transforms textile waste into new fibers.
I am a big believer that the generations of today will figure out ways to fix the faults of the generation before. Change always wins and change is what pushes us forward. When it comes to the environment, we also all need to do our individual part to make sure that our planet is here for every generation to come.
