FROM RETWEETS TO QUICK EATS: YOUR CHOICES MATTER


It's tempting to tell yourself that your choices don't matter. A plastic bag here, a light left on there. The most common reason George and I hear for not adopting an eco-friendly lifestyle is the criticism: “one person won’t make a difference anyway.”

This mindset is highly comparable to the "my vote doesn't matter" excuse people adopt around the time of an election. The fact is, if every single person thought that their vote did not matter, nobody would vote; nothing would change. We would live in a static society. Of course, you can't change the world alone. But, there is power in numbers, and that's why it has to start with you.

When I was 13, I tagged along with my step-mum and step-sister (both of whom are generously proportioned in the chest department) to Bravissimo. I was always quite a skinny child, so when the lady asked if I wanted to have a bra fitting, I politely refused – Bravissimo only offers sizes DD+. The lady assured me that they could find something, so reluctantly, I let her measure me.
