Pollution hurts people. I polluted less in the past four or five months than ever before.
Not polluting connects with people and cultures. Why don’t we try more?

What my sustainability leadership will lead to
If you think what I’m doing is pointless or won’t add up, you don’t know how leadership works. At the very least, some people will think “You can do that? I want to try.” And they’ll outperform me.
Living by your values is not sufficient to lead others but it’s necessary. While it becomes easy to live sustainably (with practice), it can be hard to split with mainstream culture, but it’s rewarding when that culture opposes values like Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You, Leave It Better Then You Found It, and Live and Let Live.
It’s worth it. You can unplug your fridge right now. Give it a shot. You won’t die.
