Today is Earth Day, the day to think about and take action for environmental issues.
My this year's action is spreading the word. I have wanted to do this for a while, but I haven't had the courage to do so since I was too worried about what others may think of me especially in Japan.
I would be categorized in Japan as "Ishiki takai kei" translate to highly/overly conscious people and basically seen as a snob or person trying to act like a celebrity for having an interest in sustainable living. I couldn't stand the thought of being categorized as that, so I have only mentioned this to close friends about my passion for sustainable living. But I care way too much about the environment than what others think of me, so here I go.
I want to save the oceans that I have swum in, the mountains that I climbed, people that I have met, culture and food that I have enjoyed, animals that brought me to smile, the air that I breathe by changing my action and spreading the message to the others.
I hope you would join and take part as well because we only have 12years until it's too late. It’s too beautiful to let it go.
