How We Can Make Positive Change!


Recommended Posts

I know everyone is talking about change and I think it's very important to make concrete goals and not just use the word as a mantra. All of us working together can make some awesome changes in a good way... I would love to share some of the ideas I have and for you guys to share some of your ideas! This way we can think about things we can do to help those around us and help ourselves.


1. Support your local businesses. This can't be said enough! Buying from farmers in your area will save you money! The less our food has to be transported, the less expensive it is... and you know your local farmers will appreciate the extra money! Also, shopping at your local music store, for instance, keeps music artful and expressive. If everyone only shops at Wal-Mart, Wal-Mart will put everyone else out of business and control the music you can listen to and the things you're allowed to buy. I don't want that and I know you don't! Also, keeping local businesses going creates more jobs!


2. be more responsible with our natural resources. Plan ahead of time so you can cut back on trips you have to make, so you can carpool, etc. Do little things like turning off the water when you're not using it! Educate yourself so you can do better with those things.


3. Donate, give, support, share. With those poorer than you, with your library, etc.

Think, get creative about how you can do something good for someone else around you.


I might add more later but I'm looking forward to what you guys have to say! We all need to work together and take responsibility for our own actions... not just expect people in Washington to! ;)
