16 Apr THIS WEEK: GROW YOUR KNOWLEDGE
We have all heard the saying, “Knowledge is power.” The more we know, the more informed we are, and the better equipped we are to make wise decisions. But then there’s this saying, “Ignorance is bliss.” And, frankly, sometimes, not being in the know, can feel pretty good. The challenge, however, is that when it comes to our environment, we all need to be informed and stop pretending we can’t learn and do more. So, this week, we want you to commit to GROW YOUR KNOWLEDGE. Growing our knowledge about the environment and our positive or negative impact on it used to be the work left to scientists. But now we have the power to calculate our personal carbon footprints with cool, online tools. We can read and see for ourselves, in videos, what’s happening to our oceans. And all of these online resources offer simple and powerful actions we can take. Just check out the Ocean Health Index for example. Yes, we can totally geek out. And when we have the scoop, we can help others learn more too. With more information and understanding, we can all share the responsibility of keeping our earth healthy. And, that is awesome. Growing your knowledge matters.
