Love the Earth - There is only one

Part 3 (of 3 part Earth Day series) - Today humanity uses the equivalent of 1.7 Earths to provide the resources we use and to absorb our waste. https://www.footprintnetwork.org/our-work/ecological-footprint/ This means it now takes Earth one year and six months to regenerate what we use in a year. I did not make a New Year's resolution this year, but I will be making an Earth Day resolution to reduce my Ecological Footprint. I'm already walking, biking and riding the bus (so my transportation impact is low), but I'm resolving to not buy styrofoam and not to buy disposable plastic (I realize cutting out all plastic is probably impossible because lots of good food comes packaged in plastic, and I don't have time to start making my own yogurt or peanut butter or a bunch of other food items that come in plastic jars). I may have to buy some things in plastic, but I won't buy water bottles, and I'm already good about not using plastic bags. There are massive patches of plastic in the oceans around the world (the one between California and Hawaii is the size of the state of Texas). I'm not a vegetarian but I am going to eat less meat and waste less food. I believe that we can change our bad habits if we want to, we just have to try. Also take this quiz if you want to learn the most effective ways to curb climate change https://www.cnn.com/interactive/2019/04/specials/climate-change-solutions-quiz/index.html
