Today I am joining the bookstagram tour for Feasible Planet by Ken Kroes, a book highlighting concerns about the sustainability of our planet.
This is a book written around a number of talk points to help to make us more knowledgeable about sustainable living.
I particularly enjoyed the chapter about Getting Around as this covers the differences between Petrol v Hybrid v Electric cars. It discusses the the pros and cons of second hand cars compared to brand new cars and considerations to think about prior to purchase. It is informative and gives stats as well as explanations to help people grow in their understanding of how they can contribute to a sustainable lifestyle.
This is a book that educates people who have no idea what sustainable living involves whilst offering information to help increase knowledge to those who have an interest but are looking for further ideas through the subjects that it covers. I loved the style in which it was written as the format is clear and the language is designed to be understandable. I found the stays interesting as I was reading as it helped me with the perspective and turned it into just more than theory for some of the chapters.
A recommended read to help everyone acknowledge where they can make a difference and help create a more sustainable lifestyle.
Are we doing enough?
Are you concerned about the state of our planet and hope that governments and corporations will find a sustainable way for us to live? If you do not think about it too hard, that may work, but will it? Left on their own, with drivers of popularity and profits, I am not too convinced that it will.
The missing part of this equation is you and me. Individuals who believe that corporations and governments can do better. Individuals who believe that through action, we can buy a bit more time to develop and implement solutions to our critical issues.
Did I hear a groan out there when you read the word ‘actions’? Do not worry! Most of the actions that I am referring to will not only help save the planet, but will benefit you right away through saving money, time, better health, and having a happier life in general.
Sustainability goes beyond controlling our consumption and pollution. There are key social, political, and economic areas that need to be addressed as well, and there are several steps that individuals can take to help in these areas.
For those of you who feel we could do more, this book is for you and is loaded with actionable activities, the reasons for doing them, and explores why we are not doing them already.
Every journey starts with a first step. Hopefully, this book will lead to those first sustainable steps and that will change the world.
