Tinkering

We humans are good at compartmentalising.

We happily shop with a backpack or canvas bag ‘to save plastic’, then collect Disney hero cards or M&S shop miniatures with our groceries.

We install dual flush toilets ‘to save water’, then take 3 showers a day.

We cycle to work ‘to avoid polluting’, then fly abroad for a holiday 4 or 5 times a year.

Compartmentalising allows us to tinker, to make ourselves feel good, when what’s really needed is a paradigm shift.

Good luck to everyone on the Global Climate Strike today.
