This week we have listened to daft excuses from coffee drinkers that they can’t either a) pay an additional 25p for their takeaway hot beverage to accommodate the environmental cost of their “disposable” cups OR b) they don’t want to be carrying a “permanent” cup for filling up repeatedly, for around £3.50 OR c) they won’t take their own flask of coffee with them.
Meanwhile we still have the vast majority of people in the West and increasingly in developing countries, eating up the Earth’s resources, polluting everything in sight for the sake of gorging on animal meat that we don’t even need, unless you live in an Igloo and you have no other recourse than to eat creatures from the sea (which is not the case for most of us!)
What to do, what to do? How about taking a bit of responsibility and investing in equality and social cohesion? How about aiming to live in a cruelty free and heart-full not heart-less society?
How about focusing on a wee bit of common human decency that is humane and moral.
