I was on Instagram just now and many times I see that there are people who love to say that Christians are flat earthers and are ruining the planet and don’t believe in Science. And these are the same people who have replaced God with Mother Earth goddess worship. I don’t believe in a flat earth and I am very eco-friendly. Maybe even more than others but don’t assume because I am Christian or Conservative that I am ruining the planet. People are more important and you are bashing people with assumptions that we are polluting the earth. Science has different takes from different doctors, scientists and scholars with the same amount of degrees. We don’t have to think the same way. Love people and do good. Bashing people’s views because they aren’t yours is bullying people. It doesn’t accomplish anything. It just divides people.
Do your part and offer better choices and give ideas. Forcing people doesn’t help either. If you want to get rid of plastic straws, offer incentives to food establishments to switch to paper straws, let people provide their reusable straws and give them a discount or a chance for a drawing or don’t even use straws.
If you want people to buy less yarn and stop buying acrylic or stop buying overseas shipments then offer some better choices made in the USA including recycled yarn or upcycled yarn. The largest craft stores don’t even offer American natural yarn or American made craft tools. People buy their yarn from WalMart because it is cheap. If they saw the factory and shipment process and how it does not benefit farmers or small business, maybe they will think twice.
Yarn hoarding is a thing now. I think it is ugly keeping a wall full of dusty yarn in cubbies that you never use plus you’re not a yarn store. Use it or sell it and buy only what you need going forward to get rid of the giant hoard. It’s 2020 and we have a new mindset than we did 10 years ago. It’s time to phase out the acrylic and polyester yarn and use yarns that will compost and have less harmful chemicals.
I didn’t do it all at once and everyone is different so let’s cut each other some slack on the matter. I am not forcing anyone and I actually get happy when someone makes a small change so lovingly encourage each other and don’t bash people with climate alarmism that says, “You’re ruining the planet! You don’t believe in science!”
