You are a global citizen.
Whether or not you choose to keep that in mind, that’s a choice you make, dozens of times every day. With every meal you eat, you cast a vote. With every plastic bottle you buy, you cast a vote. Smoke cigarettes? You cast a vote. If you model empathy to your friends, you cast a vote. If you use your wealth to support those less fortunate, you cast a vote.
Think it unfair to suggest you forfeit comfort for the environment? That could be your choice.
But, it isn’t the only choice.
How to make your vote count:

- Why do you need to start using a reusable water bottle? Think more about it here.
