Be an Asset and Depict Your Purpose in This World

At some point in our lives, we think of the purpose of our existence and most people believe that we live because we need to fulfill our mission here on earth. We hear a lot of bad news every day and we feel that the world is scarier and unsafe. Poverty, crime, religious war, unemployment, domestic violence, and pessimism are increasing in different parts of the world, and these things threaten our existence, our future, and our children’s future. Because of all the negative things going on around, we feel like we can’t do anything to change the reality. As parents of the next generation, it is our duty and responsibility to act now and do the right thing, be a good example to others and teach our children to become good citizens.

Let us begin the change in our homes before we reach outside and influence others to make this world a better place to live in, happy and safe. It is not always easy to change our shopping habits but we can help the world by patronizing our local products and purchasing items from ethical companies. By buying goods from local suppliers, you are already helping your local community instead of big businesses and you are also reducing your carbon footprint because they don’t undergo the process of being shipped around the world. Use eco-friendly products or those using natural materials such as Il Gufo Clothing, a great option for children’s clothing. Take part and do your bit for a better world by volunteering yourself in a charity event, a health mission or a disaster relief, and you will realize how it feels good to be of help to others. Being a volunteer comes in different forms and sizes, and activities you can engage with include planting trees, helping in your local soup kitchen or spending time with the elderly, and you don’t have to spend too much time especially if you’re busy, just find time and make the most out of it.

Without flying or driving a lot, there are other means of still enjoying your time with your family in order to offset or reduce your carbon emissions. Whether you’re a private individual or an entrepreneur with small, medium or large business, you can check and calculate your carbon emissions by visiting websites such as cotap.org or carbonfootprint.com. These websites are helpful in providing sound pieces of advice about offsetting your carbon emissions like tree planting or giving your contribution towards sustainability projects. One of the most rewarding methods to give back to your community and to the world is by donating your blood. With blood transfusion, you are helping directly other people to extend their lives, most especially for those who are injured, who will be undergoing surgery and those requiring a blood transfusion because of a chronic disease.
