9: Sustainability with Jonathan Zaidman (1 to 1 Movement)
There’s no denying that together we all need to start taking measures toward sustainability and conservation. It can be a little overwhelming at times. What can one person do about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch? How can I equate my energy use to polar bears thousands of miles away?
It’s hard to. Which is why 1 to 1 Movement is rebranding sustainability.
Rather than taking a large-scale global approach, Jonathan Zaidman is leading his team to drive the impact home. They are connecting with individuals, primarily students, to teach them easy ways to address all 5 of the core issues in their lives.
“Rather than making people feel like they are apart of the problem, make them feel like they are apart of the solution.”
The 5 Core Environmental Issues:
Ways to Reduce Your Footprint
- Keep lights off and energy use down;
- Bike to work;
- Grow your own food;
- Shop at thrift stores.
“Do what works for you. Find a way within your life, your time and your resources that you have to do things that make a difference in your life.”
