I believe even the littlest things make a big difference, especially when we come together as friends with a common purpose like stopping the worst impacts of climate change. I’m a quiet person, so I prefer to lead by example whenever I can. For example, I commit to carrying this reusable mug made of recycled plastic as much as possible. I do this because I know too many kids with pollution-induced asthma from plastic plants and landfills’ off-gas. And dolphins swimming with plastics makes me feel so sad. Oh, and of course the caffeine helps out in the morning after I’m up late nerding out on a conference call talking about clean energy options :)
