How to Change the World

How to Change the World

Why shouldn't the Earth be the best possible place it can be? How can we make the Earth that best possible place? How do we change the world?

Brother, can you change a light bulb? says, "If every American home replaced just one light bulb with an ENERGY STAR qualified bulb, we would save enough energy to light more than 3 million homes for a year, more than $600 million in annual energy costs, and prevent greenhouse gases equivalent to the emissions of more than 800,000 cars."

If you change what you value then you change markets and markets change the world.

At its simplest, changing the world is a matter of finding better solutions, making better choices, and "voting" with your pocketbook. What you purchase will increase, and what you reject will decrease.

You have the power to become a conscious consumer. You have the power to say, "No, I don't want that." Or, "No, I want something better." Or, "No, that doesn't work for me anymore."

You have the power to understand the issues, find better solutions, and make better choices. You have the power to control how you live your life and where your money goes.
