Act to preserve the environment without waiting for someone else to do it first.
It is easy to think that one small, damaging action does not endanger the earth´s future.
In practice, however, such actions are never isolated events! t is the repetition and accumulation of all these small acts that take on dramatic proportions. In the same way, a small, insolated gesture to preserve the environment wil not improve matters on its own. It is all the simple gestures, repeated every day bye millions of people, that will have a significant effect when added together. If the majority adopts them as a new way of life, they will contribute to preserving the planet and its riches for future generations.
Do not way for your neighbor to act. Make the first move. He or she is probably waiting for you to take the first step.
