Be an Asset and Depict Your Purpose in This World
At some point in our lives, we think of the purpose of our existence and most people believe that we live because we need to fulfill our mission here on earth. We hear a lot of bad news every day and we feel that the world is scarier and unsafe. Crime, religious war, pessimism, unemployment, and poverty are increasing in all parts of the world, and all of these things threaten our existence and the future of our children. It is easy to underestimate ourselves, thinking that we cannot do anything and we just accept the reality that these are all part of the world we live in. As parents of the next generation, it is our responsibility to act as early as now and do the right thing, being a good role model to others and teaching our children to be good citizens.
Let us start the change in our homes, with our family because if we are able to do it, then we are confident that we can also extend and do it with our neighbors and the larger society, making our world happier, safer and a better place to live in. In reality, it is hard to change our shopping habits but we can make this world better by patronizing our own local products and only shopping from ethical and reputable companies. You are reducing your carbon footprint if purchase products from local suppliers because they don’t undergo the process of being shipped around the world and you also get to help your local community instead of your money going to the pockets of big companies. Use eco-friendly products or those using natural materials such as Il Gufo Clothing, a great option for children’s clothing. Take part and do your bit for a better world by volunteering yourself in a charity event, a health mission or a disaster relief, and you will realize how it feels good to be of help to others. Volunteering comes in different forms and sizes and you don’t have to spend too much time especially if you’re busy, just find time and make the most out of it.
You can offset or reduce your carbon emissions by finding other means to enjoy spending your time with your family. Whether you’re a private individual or an entrepreneur with small, medium or large business, you can check and calculate your carbon emissions by visiting websites such as cotap.org or carbonfootprint.com. These websites are good sources of some ways you can do to offset your carbon emissions such as tree planting or giving your contribution towards sustainability projects. One of the most rewarding methods to give back to your community and to the world is by donating your blood. With blood transfusion, you are helping directly other people to extend their lives, most especially for those who are injured, who will be undergoing surgery and those requiring a blood transfusion because of a chronic disease.
