I have a bit of a problem getting my head around äre you doing anything about....".
Today, my feeling is that it's a mute point. My household does the right thing for the environment. The words climate change do not determine our behaviour.
So, what do we do???
We recycle, don't waste food, have a water tank, have solar panels, have solar hot water, never toss trash irresponsibly, watch for eco friendly packaging,and, just do the right thing. If we had a garden we would compost, but sadly that's not the case for us. We do allow the neighbour, who has a big garden, the full use of our green waste bin though.
To say that individuals are responsible for changing climate change is too broad an expectation. Isn't it better to suggest that every household should, and can, do better for the environment, no matter how small the action may be?
Parents should make it their business to teach by example. Children need to understand why they are doing things in a certain way, and, at the same time learn that all those small positive actions add up.
So, in summary. Climate change is a myriad of many things. Surely it's not a case of being a goodie two shoes, but more about being kind to our planet.
