The dollar bills in your pocket don’t have to be the only thing going green.
If you’re someone who cares about the environment, it’s time to take a step beyond simply recycling the materials you’ve always been buying. To save our planet, we have to be eco-friendly on a larger scale.
The truth is while recycling and turning off your light switches are very important, those actions make up a very small puzzle piece in the grander environmental scheme. The sad reality is that just 100 companies are responsible for an unbelievable 71% of all global emissions.
Due to the monopoly that corporations have on our air quality and ecosystem, we have to vote with our dollar bills. Just how you cast your ballot on election day to voice your opinion on how your nation should be run, each time you make a purchase, you’re deciding which companies are worth funding. When you shop from environmentally friendly companies that use green energy, such as those listed in this infographic, you’re casting your monetary vote on how you want our planet to be run.
It’s easy to feel helpless as temperatures and sea levels continue to rise, but I urge you not to give up hope. You can make a huge difference by simply researching the companies that you shop at, and offering your support to those powered by green energy.
