“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” – Jane Goodall
We all have the power to make a difference in the lives of animals and the environment every day. From small, everyday choices like opting for paper instead of plastic to supporting candidates that make animal welfare a priority. Here are a few ideas for how you can make a difference every day, in your own life.
Reduce, reuse, recycle
Avoid single-use plastic and opt for reusable or sustainable products.
Adopt don't shop
Adopt your next furry friend from a shelter or local rescue. Consider an older or special needs animal.
Avoid circuses, roadside zoos, photo ops with baby animals, carriage rides or any venue that profits from animals.
Use your voice on social media. Share news and information about animals and the environment.
Don't wear animals
There are so many stylish (and often less expensive) alternatives to leather, wool and fur.
