Going to be honest but I struggle with the whole eco side of things. Not because I think its bollocks or that we dont need to do anything. But I cant see how me changing my habits changes anything in the scheme of things.
I know the idea is that we all change a little bit and that adds up to a big change. But I’m quite self centred and think I’ll change when the other buggers do. If its easy and doesnt impact me greatly I’ll do it, but I’m not going to put myself out. I also frown at the virtue signalling done by a lot of companies. Prime example is McDonalds changing the straws to paper, which dont fucking work. Yet their drinks still have a plastic lid, the Mcflurys come with a pointless plastic hat which everyone bins the second they get near it.
Haiti has so many problems it cant handle municipal waste so it bulldozers it into the sea, but I used soap instead of a plastic bottle shower gel so the world is saved.
Sorry I know that makes me sound like a right wing selfish loon.
I do have some eco credentials though. I sold my Audi S6 nearly 2 years ago and have cycled to work ever since, although that was just because it was a money pit.
