"The world is changing; and if we do not do anything, it would change for the worst. It seems the majority of the population is waiting for some glaring sign to finally take action. For the rest of the ‘converted’, we have no option but to take lead. Companies have to be active finding solutions, and not only because someone/ organization asked them to. Solutions would have to make business sense; and the public will then have to make sustainable choices in their consumption patterns and make their voices heard. Government should be able to make difficult choices now, for other generations to thrive in the future. It’s not a responsibility of just one, it’s the common responsibility for all to save the only earth we have."
