The state of our planet is a little spooky right now. Human activity and modern conveniences are taking a significant toll on the plants, animals, and natural resources we rely on. Climate change, species extinction, and other urgent environmental issues threaten all life on Earth, including us.
The scariest part of it all? We could witness waves of extinctions in as few as 50 years, and there doesn�t seem to be an easy way to prevent them.
If each of us — billions of individuals worldwide — made modest changes in our everyday lives, we could protect the planet and its resources for ourselves, our kids, and for future generations.
I know it�s unlikely that billions of people will sign up today to alter their lifestyles.. But what if 2,000 people over the next few weeks pledged to make one small change? What if those 2,000 people encouraged 2,000 more to do the same? And what if it were simple, like trying something new this Halloween?
