Every interaction is a Teaching Opportunity.

Whenever I share articles or videos related to sustainability, climate change, or plastic pollution, people often ask me this question- “What is the solution to these problems?”

I understand that at times, these problems seem too huge to handle.

But the exciting part of living a sustainable life is that it’s a never-ending journey. We can only be a little better than we were yesterday, and before we know it, we would have traveled a long path forward.

My partner and I recently attended a Baby shower.

I found it to be an excellent opportunity to share one such solution to be better. Here’s a glimpse of the gift I shared with the new to-be parents.

Writing (grammatical and spelling errors corrected):

Dearest New Soul,

We are excited to receive you in this world. I hope that when you are born and during your entire childhood & adulthood, we keep this beautiful earth as beautiful as you are.

We promise you that we are doing everything in our hands to keep this planet flourishing.

And with this promise, we have gifted your parents with Reusable diapers.

Every year, 20 billion disposable diapers are added to the landfills, and we do not want to leave a trash-filled world for you.

You deserve better.

You deserve a green, fresh, clean planet.

Lots of Love,

As I wrote this card, I couldn’t hold back my tears.

When I think about the future of a child who is born today, it’s hard to see hope. But hope is the only thing that can keep us going.

We have a responsibility towards future generations.

So, let’s grow up and be accountable for our actions to keep this planet livable.
