Growing up, "reduce, reuse, recycle" seemed to be the key to sustainability. I was led to believe that if everyone limited their own consumption, the climate change crisis would halt.
I envision a future where awareness prevails, recognizing that the crises largely stem from policies and politics, something beyond our own self-control. Real change requires pressure to be placed on these large companies that we cannot mitigate the effects of. My values around this center around the manipulation of policies that put blame onto us as consumers. For example, with the 25-cent fee for cups, the money collected often went straight into the company's profits with no improvements in their sustainability choices.
My first step is to learn more, I still have a lot of questions about the root of the crisis.
