2019 is the year to prioritise better10 Jan 2019
2019 is the year of prioritising better. Not better prioritising but "prioritising better"; holding politicians and corporations to account, voting with the dollars in your pocket, slowing down and enjoying your food inside cafés and restaurants rather than ordering take out, appreciating nature, growing food and picking the more sustainable options available to you.
Governments (in Australia anyway) have been, well rubbish at achieving anything really. Globally however there is a lot of good news breaking through. Various municipalities all over are starting to ban single-use plastic items, small businesses are really trying to reduce their waste and are doing what they can to serve up local, ethical, organic, vegetarian and vegan, plastic free meals. Then there is this wonderful generation of youngsters protesting inaction on climate change, making politicians look stupid which isn’t that hard now that I say it. They are not the only ones, inaction by governments builds action in the grass roots and people are driving change.
