For the Planet

“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.” –Mahatma Gandhi

It might sound obvious, but we only get one planet. If we screw this one up, we don’t get to hit reset. We can’t order a replacement. Damage that can be done in an instant can take a lifetime to repair. That’s why now is the time to step up and protect the most valuable resource we have. We’re making progress, but there’s more to be done. We don’t have to deprive ourselves, but we do have to live within our means. What good are gadgets and glamor when you don’t have a safe planet to keep them on? Join me as I try my best to reduce my carbon footprint and live a life that is good for the planet.
