Me and the environment
When asked to think about my personal impact on the environment, I think about my day to day action. What am I really doing and how am I affecting the environment? Honestly, I don’t really think about my actions on the environment much on a day to day basis. There is so much to do that I find it hard to find the time to think about how my actions are affecting the environment. I think the way that American culture/society works makes it hard for many people to think about their actions on the environment. Life is so busy and success-driven it’s often hard to think outside the box. Again to my behavior, I try to do little things such as recycle, I don’t litter, car pool if possible, ride the bus, turn lights off. Etc. If something is simple enough, I would go the other route to help the environment. I think most people would be willing to make small changes to their daily tasks to help the environment. However, I don’t think many people are sure on what they can all do to be more environmentally safe. As for products I consume, I’m not even sure which products would/would not be environmentally safe. I think if more information was put out there so it is more commonly know what is harmful to the environment, more changes would be possible. The web site in the blog prompt gives some interesting information, and I think if more information like this was advertised and known to the general public, people would be more susceptible to making little changes to help the environment.
