This is our final post for the semester and even though I would love to continue my blog once the course is completed, I wanted to leave everyone with a take-away I discovered after creating and developing this theme. I think the most important component of living sustainably is being consistent and sticking to it. It is easy to get caught up in fads and trends that influence you to make a change, but sometimes that change is only temporary. Everyone has the potential to get excited about saving the environment, but over time they might grow weary of taking a few extra minutes each day to make responsible decisions regarding the well-being of the Earth.
I have mentioned in previous posts how it is sometimes harder for others to make the first step in living sustainably because they may think, “Well, it’s just one piece of plastic I am recycling,” or, “It’s just one light I’m turning off, how could that really make a difference?” You’d be surprised! Those little things are actually the most important because they all add up to make one, true difference in the world. I have been conducting my own sustainable living experiment this semester as I have written about it, and I can tell you that there’s a lot of satisfaction that comes with being good to the Earth. At first it’s definitely an adjustment period but, as long as you stick to it, living sustainably will become a part of your everyday routine and the choices you make to do so will become so blissfully normal. ☮ ૐ ☽ ☯
