Dear Reader, as I take steps to launch a green lifestyle business where I help individuals make healthier, greener choices and, ultimately, make a difference on this planet, I was struck by many questions. How do we, as citizens of the planet, create global change? Why are we still dependent on petroleum and what can we do about that? It seems strange to me that with advanced technologies like the latest smart-phone or the ability to send space probes to Mars or the latest warfare technologies (yikes!), that we still don’t have affordable, completely clean energy vehicles on the market or that conventional gas cars even still exist.
With these questions brewing inside me, I decided ask my Facebook friends, if there were any books or movies they could recommend about” how change is made on a more global scale.” One person recommended, THRIVE: What On Earth Will It Take? I had been recommended that movie before, even though I didn’t know what it was about, so I set out to watch it that evening. It can be seen for free on YouTube.
For me, watching THRIVE was life-changing and the missing puzzle piece, shining a light on the root of many of our world issues, including the environment, while also sharing the solutions, because who wants to be given a lot of problems and feel fearful and helpless? We want to know how we can make a difference.
