3 mistakes people make when trying to be more sustainable — 2 Comments

  1. “You won’t be able to change the world alone” – the harsh truth. This is a hidden gem. I never thought someone would actually write a short piece on this topic!
    There’s one more mistake I’d like to suggest; “Don’t show off”. Trust me, I’ve seen a lot of people, especially young couples, trying too hard to live a sustainable life by actually showing off.
    I mean, that sucks. Right? You should make some statement with your actions, and may inspire others to follow a greener lifestyle but showing off is the last thing you should do.
    What do you think?

  2. I’m not sure what you mean by showing off. If anyone has the attitude, “look how much sacrifice I’m making for the sake of the planet,” it will get pretty old pretty fast. It’s not a sustainable attitude if it makes your friends want to avoid you. I don’t remember meeting anyone like that. More often I notice people who act like everyone else is part of the problem if, for example, they eat meat. That’s more judgmental than showing off. Doing any good thing with a bad attitude diminishes the goodness.
