BE OPEN TO IT
It can be overwhelming trying to work out how to make a difference to, say, the quality of water in our rivers. But open your mind to it all. My kids are great educators for me on this. Children seem to have an intrinsic understanding of the link between our behaviour and our impact on the land and ocean. They also serve as a reminder to do the right thing – it’s essential we embrace sustainability for them as our future generation. When it comes to engaging with this issue, there are some awesome resources around and great organisations doing cool things – such as Sustainable Coastlines and Forest & Bird. Let’s follow their lead!
