Due to an increase in the amount of pollutants entering our water ways, impacting - not just the overall water quality - but the environment and wildlife which reside there, there has been an alarming drop in local endemic wildlife. Micro-plastics, fertilizers, herbicides and other foreign substances have wound their way into our oceans, wetlands, rivers and estuaries, permeating each layer of the ecosystem. This has a deadly drop-down effect; ultimately effecting each member of the food chain – including humans. But it’s not just literal trash we’re talking about. The time has come to address the sheer over-consumption of some of us. Wastage is present through every area of existence – food, energy, purchasing and so on. We cannot afford to live like this any longer. In a world of finite resources – it is time we reign in our infinite desires and take only what we need.
