If you give to environmental organizations like Earth Justice, Audibon Society, Environmental Defense Fund, etc. that’s great. Congrats and keep it up.
But if that is all you do for the environment you are merely a “Wallet Environmentalist”.
Please be an ACTIVIST Environmentalist. Camaign for candidates who will fight for the environment, Donate to their campaigns too. Demonstrate for the environment. Join in environmental clean-up work. Send “constituent” emails to your local, state and federal elected representatives.
And VOTE for a cleaner, cooler earth.Mar 15, 2019 at 9:05 pm #3583744

and if i may add something: BE environmentally conscious. just worked on a survey of some colleges, asking a bunch of questions about sustainability and eco-conscious behavior, and the incidence of people thinking ‘recycled’ or ‘recyclable’ or biodegradable or whatever nonsense on the labels of single-use items, especially plastics, was good/great for the environment was sickening. ‘wallet environmentalism’ is something that green-washing market actors look to take advantage of. be wary.Mar 15, 2019 at 10:58 pm #3583767
