So many programmes and news feeds tell us that in
our lives, almost anything we do has a marked
detrimental effect on the world around us.
Consumption consumes. Waste pollutes. Food has miles. Clothes
sweat. Journeys emit. So we all, collectively,
know this. However. Nothing changes. Mainly, I
think, because we’re largely – individually –
unable to make a difference. We’ve made it
necessary to eat, clothe ourselves, travel to
work. No escaping. Damage is mandatory,
for living in our world. On that score, given we
are helpless but cognisant, are we innocent?
