To be environmentally conscious is not all about plastic bags; it’s about making everyday choices that will — quite literally — determine our success or failure as a species. We can be more conscious about reducing pollution, protecting wildlife, conserving natural resources and take other actions that can help slow the rate of climate change.
Everyone can make a difference, particularly when smart environmental choices become a habit and perhaps even begin influencing others into taking similar actions. Doing the right thing for the future of life on Earth can even have immediate personal benefits. It can tap into your creativity, can get you more engaged with your community and the world, and may contribute to a healthier lifestyle.
We need to reduce the amount of trash we create, and to reuse or repurpose consumer goods rather than throwing them away. The aim of showcasing the best practices adopted by a property which was constructed 200 years ago, is to encourage everybody to become conscious human beings living in this planet and contribute towards preserving a future for the next generation.
