Wow, time flies and I realise that I not only negelected this newsletter for a long time but since I started the draft for this edition, nearly two months of life happened. I’ll have to see how often I can write this again but the goal is to just publish it when I write the draft and not let it wait in the queue for such a long time. If you want to know what happened recently in my life, at least a part of it can be seen here and there are some notes on my Garden (in German only for now). My own blog has been neglected as well but maybe I’ll find more time over the next weeks to give back some life to it. Now over to this weeks topic:

It’s our money that rules the world. We together still own more money than anyone else on the planet. What we spend our money on is going to shape the direction where we as society go. We influence whether there will be a war, how many cars are produced, how many pesticides are sprayed across our planet, how many trees in the rainforests are cut, how many planes are polluting the air we breathe. Every single cent is spent either to a good cause or a bad cause and if we’d bear that in mind every day, we probably would change our shopping behaviour.

We can opt for renewable energy in our homes, at the workplace, we can buy natural, organic, non processed food. We don’t need to buy a new iPhone every year, a new car every two or five years, we don’t need to fly to far away destinations just for vacation. We don’t need to buy cheap meat, plastics, a pair of Jeans manufactured by poor children who breath chemicals and colors every day because of what we buy.

We’re a small dot in evolution but we can change where we are on the line. More importantly, we, and only we or maximum our children will decide whether the line continues or whether humans go extinct. Like dinosaurs in the past.
