Many of us are doing our best when it comes to reducing our environmental impact. We’re using less electricity and water then we used to, are opting to buy locally produced goods, and are all-around living in homes that have a smaller carbon footprint than regular homes. Yet while these small changes do make a difference, there is even more that we can do, actions that will make us a bonafide eco-warrior long into the future. Take a read below, and get ready to make a long-lasting difference to the world!
How To Leave A Eco-Warrior Legacy
Teach Your Children
Education is everything. In the years that we’ve been reducing our environmental footprint, we’ve acquired more knowledge than we ever thought we would. It’s imperative that we don’t keep this knowledge to ourselves, however. We should teach everything that we know to our children, nieces, nephews, and so on. They’ll have vast sums of important information on hand. They’re going to keep on learning, which means they’ll have an even greater knowledge bank than we do. Passing down the important information to the younger generation is a crucial aspect of their education. It ensures that our eco-warrior legacy isn’t lost to time.
Gifts To Organizations
You’re going your bit for the environment. Many other individuals are doing their bit, too. But there are also organizations out there who are doing things on a larger scale. They’re trying to influence legislature, are working to protect wildlife and wilderness, and so on. Perhaps you already give some money to these charities, but in any case, why not consider making a bigger contribution? When it comes to your estate planning, set aside a portion of your money for environmental organizations. With the money, they’ll be able to carry on fighting to protect the world.
Join the Front Lines
Of course, you don’t just have to contribute to these organizations financially. You can also roll up your sleeves and get involved in a hands-on way. Take a look at which environment organizations are operating in your area, and get in touch. It may be that you have a set of skills that they need. Even if you don’t have set skills, you can always get involved with lettering, campaigning, talking to people, and so on. Organizations are always in need of people to help out, and it’s one of the best ways to make a lasting difference. And this is a great way to build your eco-warrior legacy too.
Look For New Innovations
If you’re operating a homestead, then it’s likely that your carbon footprint is already pretty low. But there are always innovations popping up, technologies that make a home even more sustainable. Keep an eye out for these, and add them to your property in due course. It’ll make your home earth-friendly in a long-term way.
Be An Inspiration
Finally, don’t discount what an impact you can have just by being you! Continue to fight for the environment, and your actions might have ripple effects that grow and grow and grow. Be the change you want to see in the world!
