We should eat local and organic as much as possible, it is better for us and better for the environment. We eat wat too much in North America, so it is better to reduce quantity and concentrate on quality. Plus, notice that most of the food mentioned are bad for us anyway: hight fructose corn syrup, genetically modified food, food with palm oil, fast food, white bread, packaged and processed food (with too much salt, bad fat and sugar), meat (hormones, antibiotic and fat), sugar.

It is easier to deny that climate change is happening and to continue living in our own little selfish bubble. We have to recognize that our actions influence the whole world. For example, because we want exotic wood for our furniture, the forrest in the Amazon is being destroyed, whcih affects both the lives of the natives and the environment. Globl overconsumption causes abuse of the resources. The UN has sent a warning that we are depleting natural resources and by 2050 it will all be used up. It is not difficult to make small changes. I have started using reusable bags for my groceries 6 years ago; for a family of 5, it's at least 25 plastic bags saved a week, 52 weeks a year, for 6 years. Just do the maths. If everybody takes the same step, how many bags are not used: not only they don't end up in the dump, but less oil used to make them! There are lots of these little steps we can take that are not difficult. It is a mattter of bursting the bubble and see the whole world as belonging to us and our children.
