Everyone is accountable - YOU can do more

In any situation - no matter who you are or where you're from there is always something that you can do.

Have a think about any situation you've been in before.  There were times when you took action to get involved, there are other times when you supported the people that were involved & there are other times when you did nothing to get involved.

As you can see, you've got 3 options to try to make things better.

You might not think your contribution does not add too much - but be assured that no matter what you do, your input it valued & is valuable.

An individual is always going to be part of the whole & what you do as an individual can have an effect on everyone.

As an individual, you are part of the multiplier & your contribution DOES COUNT.

Let's do some simple maths for a years worth of Plastic Bags by imagining you make 2 trips to the store each week & you take 5 Plastic Bags per visit, that's 520 Bags per year for your household.

Now multiply 520 by the number of people in your community.  Let's say there's 1,100 households that use your local supermarket.

572,000 Plastic Bags going in to the community per year.

It's does not take much to get involved.  It might not be sexy, nor something you'll talk about at dinner with your friends, but it all adds up.

In fact - no... let's talk about it at dinner next time.  Make sure you hold other people to account for the future of your planet.

There's no need to hide away & not talk about it - everyone is accountable.

Make sure you're doing your bit.
