It'll only get hotter. Right now 1/3 of the world's population is experiencing extremely high temps that can cause death. Greenhouse gases are a major culprit. And people experiencing poverty are taking the brunt of it. But each of us can do something each day to help stop global warming. Maybe you'll decide to walk instead of drive to work, or eat less meat, which requires a lot of energy to produce. You can also tag a friend and let them know why YOU are fighting climate change.
A photo of one of my favorite customers and also fellow protesters, Bill. When I first started at Starbucks he came in with his reusable cup and got a coffee once or twice, with this same hat on. I remember having conversations about how I appreciated him reusing his cup and reducing waste and also how his hat was sweet. The last time I saw him in store was a few months ago about the time of the Muslim ban and he told me he was on his way to an anti-Trump rally. I was super bummed when he didn't come in for the last couple months but at the people's climate rally I ran into him and we were both stoked to see eachother. It's hard to remember every customer but Bill reminded me of who I want to be as I grow older and that we should always stand up for what we believe in. (and also, he wore a BILLed hat which made it easy to remember his name) #35mm#peoplesclimate#tobeapartner
Too close to home, this mind-blowing statistic is wreaking havoc on T&T's wellbeing. Environmental issues are by no means isolated... they very much affect our personal health, dignity and the economy, as well.
