Once we've made a commitment to try to make our lives
and our relationships more peaceful, we can start to
look at other daily choices we make. Is there anything
we can do in our daily routines that will help us to
create a better world?
order to have a better world lifestyle, our lives have
to be sustainable - we have to find a balance. Are we
caught in the cycle of not spending time with our families
because we are working too hard to get more things than
we really need?
the things that we buy made by people who work in safe
conditions and are paid a living wage? Were they made
in ways that didn't harm the environment or won't harm
it when we're done with them?
are many things that we can do with our investments
and our purchases that will help change the system rather
than reinforcing it. We can invest our money in socially
responsible banks and funds. We can make a conscious
effort to buy products made by businesses that respect
the environment and treat their employees fairly. We
can use our spending money to purchase renewable energy
products to heat our homes and travel to work.
Our goal is to create a world where citizens, communities,
corporations and nations work together in a responsible
way. Where decisions are not based on how much things
cost or how much profit can be made, but on the value
that it adds to the lives of our citizens and employees,
and its impact on the environment. This sustainable
life begins when we make our own lives more sustainable.
