10 Apr THIS WEEK: DIVIDE BY TWO
We are perplexed. How is it that every year over 700 million people in the world are chronically malnourished, yet one-third of all the food produced in the world is lost or wasted? How is it that we are using our planet’s natural resources at an alarming rate; yet only one of the lanes on the freeway is for carpooling? What if it was the other way around? Think more of us would become carpoolers if there was only one lane for non-carpooling? Taking care of our environment is, in some ways, simply a matter of math. So this week, we want you to DIVIDE BY TWO. Two people sharing a car just divided their car usage in half. Watering your lawn every other day just cut that water use in half. Using your bathroom towel twice just cut your towel laundry in half. We can keep going but think you get the point. So what can you cut in half? We want to challenge you to make that list and go for it. Sometimes “saving the environment” seems like a big job and it’s hard to know where to start; but, with a little bit of awareness and cutting our usage in half, it quickly becomes attainable. After all, dividing by two can literally double the positive impact we can make. Dividing by two matters.
