One thing that worries me the most is global warming. I am concerned about how we treat this world and in what state we leave it to our children. I look at my little love and wonder if the place he will inhabit shall be safe. The way our beautiful earth is heating up, in such a fast pace, is not normal. I sometimes feel helpless, as governments and big corporations are so slow to make important changes for the better.
I have always had the need for my work to have a positive impact on the people around me. That is why for many years I filmed and created films for charities like The Salvation Army and Endometriosis UK. Now that I have my own business, I want to continue to support projects that make this world a better place. And this is how I am doing that:
A Green Business
I desperately want to leave a better world for the next generation, so I registered my business with Ecologi. So far, my donation has planted 250 trees and has supported a clean energy project in Uganda. I know this will not stop this climate crisis. However, doing something makes me feel a whole lot better and a lot less helpless.
I also have a feeling that the people who will hire me as their photographer or filmmaker will appreciate this about my business. That it will make them happy that by hiring me they support a business that tries to leave a positive impact and has a greener footprint.
A Greener Personal Footprint
On a personal level me and my family try to be conscious as much as we can. Our household gets green energy from Bulb. We do not buy cows meat; hang dry our clothing and we are saving up for a hybrid car. I do feel like there is so much more I can and should be doing. So, I would really love to hear what ways you try to reduce your impact on this world!
