Loving this post from @kennaaloha - Compassion or Convenience? What’s more important to you? ⠀ ⠀ If we’re completely honest, convenience tends to have priority over compassion for us sometimes. After all, what ISN’T appealing about everything being super easily accessible to us??...But it’s not sustainable. It’s having detrimental effects on other living things that will come back to bite us, too.⠀ ⠀ If we want to save the planet the best we can for ourselves and for future generations, then we’ll need to go against our natural human instincts that crave convenience and laziness. Instead, we must actively and consciously make better eco-minded decisions, so we can keep shaping the society that we want and need 💙 Reduce plastic, consume consciously, speak up. You vote with your voice and your dollar. Don’t dismiss the power that you have in the world. #livemindfully #savetheocean #itsallconnected #trashtag
