Do you feel that there is nothing you can do to make a difference?
You want to, but what can one person do?
One person can do a lot when they join with others who are already voting for sustainability.
Taking action is like voting for what you want to see happen in the world.
I just took action to tell the EPA to protect our waters from harmful nitrogen and phosphorus pollution.

These are the kinds of simple things we can do to make a difference. After we take action it is important to let others know about it (that is what I am doing right now). The more people who hear about it the better.
Another way to vote for sustainability is with your money. If you purchase items derived from sustainable sources you are choosing/voting for what you want to see more of. Production is driven by what people spend their money on.

Another way to make a difference at the same time as making money is to invest in socially responsible companies. By supporting these companies and avoiding others helps to grow the right kinds of business. You can learn more here.
