Before I do anything, I think.

Before I eat something, I think. That’s why I’m a vegetarian, because I think of all the suffering animals around the world and all the rain forest that’s been cut down to graze cattle for hamburgers.

Before I buy something, I think. That’s why I choose environmentally responsible products, to support sustainable companies that are part of the solution, not the problem.

Before I swat at a scary bug in my house, I think. That’s why I always catch the bug and put him outside, because I have no right to take any life away, even the life of a bug. He has as much right to be here as I do.

Before I drive my race car, I think. That’s why I adopt an acre of rainforest for every race I enter, because I want to give back in exchange for the fuel I burn in my job.

Before I go scuba diving, I think. That’s why I don’t touch any living thing in the ocean. I’m there only to observe.

Before I go into the grocery store, I think. That’s why I take along my own reusable bags, because I don’t want to use a plastic bag that could end up in the ocean, killing wildlife that accidentally ingests the plastic.

Before I get out of bed in the morning, I think. That’s why I fill my day doing my small part to make the world a better place. I want to be kind, to be good, to be green.

Before I go to bed at night, I think. I think about what a wonderful place the world would be if all of us thought for just a moment before we made a decision.

What if, rather than making a decision based on selfish gain, we all chose instead to make the right choice for the Earth and all its inhabitants?

When faced with the enormity of humanity’s overwhelming problems in the world, when you think to yourself, What difference can I really make? What difference does it make if I – only one person among billions – recycle an aluminum can or don’t use plastic bags or stop eating meat? … just remember: small changes, multiplied by billions, make a big difference.
