    What concerns me most is that many of our behaviors indicate that we are placing the burden of responsibility on "someone  else"... whomever that might be... government, stores, manufacturers, neighbors, the garbage service, etc... We are all the stakeholders when it comes to the health of our planet. Every action, no matter how simple or minor contributes in some way. We need to practice mindful behaviors and consider the consequence of apathy.
