Many of us know about the problems that plague the environment. Pollution, climate change, exploitation of raw resources, loss of habitat, extinction of species… all of these seem so huge that it sometimes feels like there’s nothing we can do against the slow but inevitable destruction of Planet Earth’s natural beauty. 🙁
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Our actions, no matter how small, matter. Following that belief, the team here at Borneo Eco Tours gathered in solidarity one Friday afternoon to put up their pledges – all in the name of sustainability.
The pledges weren’t anything big or drastically life-changing. Most were just little changes to the stuff we do in everyday life – things that we should or should not be doing for our and the environment’s good anyway! By writing these things down and putting them up on the Pledge Wall, everyone has a chance to contribute to sustainability efforts… while also showcasing their creativity 😉
Let’s have a look, shall we?
Feeling inspired? You don’t need a big ol’ fancy wall to hang your pledge on – you can always write it down on a simple note (go for eco-friendly paper if you’re concerned about the impact these notes can have on the environment!) and post it somewhere you’re likely to see on a daily basis.
The sustainability practices here at Borneo Eco Tours didn’t just come suddenly – it has been a long and sometimes challenging journey, but we’re finally starting to see the principles of eco-living take root in almost everything we do. It will take work, but if you’re willing to uphold your promise in the name of sustainability, you’re already on the path towards a cleaner, greener environment.
Let’s take that first step together, and pledge for a better home for everyone.
