” We are the first generation to know we’ re destroying the world, and we could be the last that can do anything about it.”
This is what WWF said aiming to influence more people to start taking care of our home, our planet. They also said that people nowadays are getting more and more familiar with the environmental issues which is considered very hopeful. Is this enough? No
People although they do have the knowledge they don’t seem like taking the action.
Older generation from us didn’t know the harm they were doing to the planet, by extension to us, so they couldn’t protect us. But we do know what we are doing now and how much damage it can cause to us, to the environment, to our kids, grandkids and the list goes on and on.
If you have read till this point and you are thinking” just another environmental article” and you are just about to click out, please don’t! Just hear me out, because I m trying to do better but it is not enough. I can’t change the world by myself and you can’t change the world by yourself neither but we can, if we try together.
