It’s for You and Me
Change Started – Harbingers of Hope
“Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.”Vince Lombardi
None of us are quintessential and none of us should be content with it.
Efforts should be made consistently to bring incremental improvements not to reach perfection but to bring about a “change” – to bring about a positive impact on the lives around us.
The environment is not only for placard-wielding activists and sustainability is no longer a buzzword.
Living in harmony with nature, preventing wastage & misuse, encouraging trees & plantation, conserving water, reusing items at home, supporting an eco-friendly lifestyle, and living sustainably – are very very small aspects of lives, where if attention is given, can help benefit to oneself and the society.
All of us know and recognize these aspects and look forward to being a part of this, but we eventually tend to turn a blind eye towards it as no one else seems to be as concerned as you did initially.
One might feel that there is no point in single-handedly doing it but one must also remember that “two wrongs don’t make it right”. On the contrary, if you feel alone, then it is the best time to engage with others and develop a community that can do this together.
Moreover, the transport we used on the way to work, the mobile phone that we’re constantly operating, the clothes we wear, the food we eat, the bottle we had a drink from, everything has environmental costs and the choices we make will define the course of this planet. We have got only one planet and it is our responsibility to take care of it.
The solutions to these problems are very simple and easy to implement, it is just that we need to be open to CHANGE.
There are many institutions, companies, individuals, groups, and celebrities who are contributing to making the world a better place. Whether it is theirs, yours, or ours, with this platform, we want to bring stories, news, research, reports, opinions, suggestions, thoughts, best practices from around the world to you.
Change Started is a forum to share, discuss, and highlight those issues which look trivial but if we as individuals change, can create a huge impact on society.
Together let’s create a healthy planet.
