Small Changes

“In Western society, such every day actions as turning on the light or setting out for work are performed without thought for their consequences.  If it were possible to understand the consequences of these actions in terms of their impact on the environment, it might also be possible to conceive of less harmful ways to achieve the same ends.  Heating and lighting, discarding materials or even buildings, and moving between home and work, all have grave consequences.  Yet even quite small changes in the way such actions are performed could be enough to bring a sustainable future.”
