30 Things You Can Do To Save the Planet: STOP Changing the World!

Share this:

The well-intentioned rallying cry to “change the world” becomes louder and more hashtag-worthy, especially as Earth Day approaches. A search on Google garners millions of results for articles to help people make a difference:

*10 Things That Even YOU Can Do to Change the World

*30 Things You Can Do to Change the World in 30 Seconds

*50 Ways YOU Can Change the World without Leaving Your Favorite Chair.

The problem is that we’re asking the wrong thing of people. It’s not that we CAN change the world. It’s that we ARE changing the world. What we need to do is STOP changing the world — and change ourselves instead.

About Colleen

Hello, and welcome. I’m Colleen, aka The Joyful Vegan, and I’m here to give you the tools and resources you need to eat, cook, travel, and live compassionately and healthfully. 

Donating = Loving

For over twenty years, my work and podcast have remained free (and ad-free) and vibrant thanks to support from listeners, followers, and readers. I have no staff, no interns, and no assistant. What you see (and hear and watch) is a one-woman labor of love that is also my life and my livelihood. If this labor has impacted your life in the past year (or the past decades), please consider aiding its sustenance by becoming a patron or by making a one-time donation. Your support makes all the difference.
