CONSUMING THE PLANET
In less than eight months, we consume more than our planet produces in a year. That means that we are exhausting their resources and getting less and less.
Our society is like an open wound for our planet. The Earth is bleeding…
We invite you today to investigate the «Ecological Footprint» and think about which one you want to leave behind.
Posting it on your social media will help raise awareness about this problem.
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world and am free.
By Wendell Berry
