Encouraging us all to do the best we possibly can: Aleks (Natural Bröder; EE)

“Sort your trash, take your own bag to a grocery store, take your own cup to a coffee shop, don’t throw trash around and reuse things as much as you can. Those would be the basics. Also, many new sustainable brands are coming out, but with them many greenwashing brands are coming along too. You should research the brand to know if it really is what it claims to be. And the reason would be to keep the business going while not being too harmful to our planet. Not everything we as species do is bad, we just need to manage our processes better.”

Caring about animals and caring about humans don’t rule each other out: Anna Morozova (the Baltics)

“Social and political movements which have equality and compassion in focus are important to me. Compassion in the widest meaning of it, be it to fellow Earthlings, or to planet Earth in general, or to other races, genders, alternative lifestyles, what not. I might say a strange thing, but I think that tolerance is not enough. You can tolerate and secretly hate something or someone at the same time. Compassion and empathy go a longer way, in my opinion. Of course, veganism and third-wave feminism are important. Extinction Rebellion is important, even if I am not involved too much. Various kind of environmental actions, be it within Let’s Do It! frames or otherwise. Those promoting human rights and creating opportunities.”
