This is probably our last post. We have now learned more about the environment and how our “carbon footstep” affects the nature. So we have decided to cancel our trip to Asia because it ain’t worth it, instead are we going to go on a weekend in Gothenburg. We shouldn’t put the our interest in front the environment.
We have realized that the decisions we make in our daily life actually makes a difference. Therefore when Jonas bought the fruits for our fruit salad, it was a lot of different alternatives. So he did some research about what affects the environment the most and what you’re supposed to buy instead, or if there is any better choices. He made the conclusion that it’s a lot better to buy organic, because there is no toxic chemicals that will ruin the environment. The chemicals that is being used also affects your health negative, so there is not really anything positive about not buying organic. Except that it is a lot cheaper, but we can afford it so we’ll rather spend a little more money to help the environment.
And sorry for telling you guys so much about the trip and getting you excited, but it came to our knowledge that the emissions that the airplane does, affects a lot and if we choose to not travel with plane it means the “demand/request” will lower and if more individual people do this it will make a big difference. Before we thought it doesn’t matter what we do, the plane will take off even if we are on it or not. But we have now realized that in the reality it does matter. Together and in the whole picture it actually does.
Things that we will change in our lifestyle is the small things, like look what country the product is from, recycle, buy second hand instead of new products, it’s cheaper and better for the environment. We will search for more information about how our daily life affects the environment, so we can learn to treat it better.
Thank you for following us through these couple of weeks. It has been a pleasure, but during the time we’ve learned so much new important things and we have tried to spread the message to our readers. We hope you keep telling the word.
Together we can change the world.
Mika and Jonas
