When I was in Roatan a year ago, there were no recycling facilities that I could see. The people living here even told me that there was no where to recycle cans and bottles. If you’ve read my book, I talk about how cans are simply burned or just thrown into the ocean here! My husband and I did discover by asking around that the stores would take the bottles and cans and return them, so we started dropping them off there. One year later, I am so pleased to report that there are now bottle and can containers located all over the island. Woo Hoo! What a difference a year can make. Someone here was thinking, and wanted to help make a change for this island, and for the world. A small thought followed by a small action by one person created a huge change in how things are handled on this island.
You may think that the little things you do don’t add up to much. But, if the little things you do stimulate others to change their thinking, and then they start doing little things also, eventually we can all change the world just by doing something small. And that is the way to make change, and save the planet that has been so good to us. Small actions and small changes in thinking create huge results. So get out there and do something small today! Namaste.
