We need to make changes as our mother is crying out, sometimes it’s overwhelming and we feel powerless against these huge corporations but we can each do our own little bit by educating ourselves, making changes in our own lives and our families lives by choosing what we consume and what we buy. If the demand isn’t there, then companies will be forced to do things differently.

The famous saying “After the last tree has been cut down, the last river has been poisoned, the last fish has been caught, will we realise we cannot eat money” is very relevant. Greed, power and ignorance, shall not overcome if we each stand up for what is right, no matter what they threaten us with.
