The world is speaking to us! It's all about collective efforts
by Jason Hyde on Jul 13, 2021
In the past few weeks, things have been getting hot. Or so it seems. And no, this time is not about the summer temperatures. It’s about the actual health of our planet and in turn, our own.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, we’ve witnessed a few environmental disasters in the past few weeks. We cannot talk about unprecedented incidents without extending our deepest condolences and prayers to the families affected by the tragedy in Surfside, Florida. Although the causes of the building collapse are still being investigated, this event hurts deeply in a collective sense which is what we’re here for, today.
The world seems to be hurting more than usual in the public eye. The Gulf of Mexico has been compared to a hell hole, after catching fire when an underground gas pipe leaked, and sea animals as big as dolphins washed up on Sri Lanka beaches after a cargo ship carrying toxins sank in the Indian Ocean. Thankfully, Hurricane Elsa slowed down and lost strength before hitting Florida, otherwise, these together could look like signs of something anxiety-inducing.
All of this goes to show us how little control we have over large-scale events. And when faced with these events, those left standing fit mostly into two categories.
I like to call this, the Coca-cola predicament. It’s 2021, and we all know what carbonated sodas are made of and what they do to our bodies. If you want to know where you stand, ask yourself this: life is short so I might as well drink that soda, or life is short so I choose to cut or limit soda as much as I can.
We know those choices go for almost everything we consume daily, which is why every week we bring you news and advice to help keep both the planet and yourself safe and thriving.
We live in a globalized world where you can buy out-of-season avocados from one part of the world, on the other side of it. And every product you purchase is an endorsement for that product and brand. Each step you take towards true health makes the collective healthier.
You are a part of this world, you are a part of the food chain, and we will all eventually play our part in the circle of life. Take matters into your own hands and act to create change.
