Happy Friday, Food Rebels!
Just a quickie this Friday, and I’d like to talk about something that’s been on my mind for a couple of weeks.
I’m talking about Fault and Responsibility. After recently reading ‘The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck’ (amazon link), one particular topic has stuck with me when it comes to food and the environment.
Just to mention – I found the book itself a very interesting read. I can see why it’s not for everyone, though it gave me plenty to think about and for that I’m happy with the investment.
Right, back to the topic – Fault and Responsibility.
If we look around us, and the environmental damage that has been caused, it’s easy to point fingers. In fact, we can often say clearly who’s fault it was.
It’s flights, it’s deforestation, it’s overpopulation. It’s one-use plastic and poor recycling.
It’s all of these.
And actually, that’s kind of the point. Although we certainly need to look at the causes, and make sure they don’t happen again – it doesn’t really matter who’s fault it is.
We’re in this situation whether we like it or not. And it’s our responsibility to get ourselves out of it. Whether we like it or not.
And you may or may not agree with these thoughts about fault and responsibility. Either is fine.
The outcome is still the same. We have the power to change things. So let’s do something about it.
Even just reducing our meat and dairy can and will have a massive effect on the environment. Even if it’s just one day at a time.
Let’s take today. Why don’t we try some more environmentally-friendly recipes – just one for one day?
We’ve got this.
