We can accomplish this by talking to each other. While picking up your kids, grocery shopping, or walking on the treadmill at the gym you can mention how reusable bottles help decrease the amount of plastic in the ocean, that fertilizer runs off into the water and leads to low oxygen, or that there really isn’t enough oil off the Atlantic coast to lower our gas prices so we shouldn’t risk drilling. This is how behavior starts to change. You can write a blog or a letter-to-the-editor or even post on your Facebook account to help spread the word.
People working together can make a difference and can change laws. So embrace advocacy and use it in your everyday life. We do and we see just how effective it can be!
