A radical shift in our decision making process is necessary for us to leave the world in good condition for future generations. One example of this thinking come from the Great Law of The Iroquois Confederacy... "In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations."
Rather than making quick "feel good" decisions to meet our immediate desires, we can develop a new paradigm in our decision making process, considering seven generations down the line. I'm guessing we just might buy a whole lot less junk, make fewer trips in our vehicles and by so doing, leave the world a much better place.
I was heartened to learn from an article in the SunPost that the Three Rivers Park District has received positive feedback from park guests for its decision to quit selling water in disposable water bottles. They now sell water in reusable bottles.
Interested in doing something more about this? Join the campaign, Ban the Bottle, Stay Hydrated, to reduce the consumption of water from disposable bottles.
We can be the change.
