The solution



Because I was a hippie in the 1960's (Google it if you don't know what "hippie" means), I understand about

IF YOU'RE NOT PART OF THE SOLUTION, YOU'RE PART OF THE PROBLEM.

See, the deal is, if you don't do anything to get rid of toxic chemicals in your own environment, you are helping make the problem continue. If you keep using fragranced products, you put that toxic junk into the air and you harm yourself and others. That is the problem. So, every tiny step you take, every little bit of toxic chemical you eliminate from your life, every person you influence (even a wee bit), helps make this a cleaner world. It may not seem like much. But it is.

If individuals did not believe they could make any difference in this world, we'd certainly be doomed. Absofuckinglutely.

You are so right, you ol' radical you! Since I think change will come to our consumerist culture, it is indeed significant -- every "wee bit" of influence we manage with our fellow consumers.

It's probably going to get worse before it gets better, but awareness is growing -- 'cause people are suffering.

That's what it takes: people have to get really sick (or die) and THEN something will happen. How very unenlightened that is.

There are so many good things happening, so many people working for change, battling the ginormous evil corporations -- the least we can do is our small part.

Or maybe our large part. Get out there and wave your arms around and make a lot of noise.
