On LinkedIn I'm having a really interesting and proactive discussion about sustainability and I've decided to share with you one of my comments.
Why? Because I agree with this beautiful quotation from Camus and because I say 'no'. Very often. Every day. Everywhere. To everyone. No matter what. When I think that something is wrong, I simply say 'no'. Without fear. Life is too short.
I badly believe in boycotting and in ethical consumerism. I'm Vegan. I don't have a car or a television. I boycott Corporations. I have a bank account in an ethical bank. I renew, recycle, reuse. I don't take medicines. And so on.
I think that I have a very big power because I can choose how to invest and manage my money and that I can choose to spend less, to waste less, to pollute less, to not support 'mainstream' systems.
To share with people what I know and what I believe. To try to change the world around me. To search for other people who share my ideas and to do something practical with these people to change what I believe is wrong.
And now I add 'Because I say 'no' when I feel it'.
