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. Ā With every meal you eat, you cast a vote. With every plastic bottle you buy, you cast a vote. Ā Smoke cigarettes? Ā You cast a vote. Ā If you model empathy to your friends, you cast a vote. Ā 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:
