“Use the hashtag #SaveThePlanet to help save the planet!”
OMG you guys! Who knew that saving the planet was so easy!?
Why aren’t you doing this, guys!?
Guys? Guys? Guys? The planet!
We gotta save the planet!
Use the hashtag, guys!
Save the planet! Save the planet!
*Pretty sure likes and hashtags are going to have no noticeable impact on the planet. All that relying on them does is give someone the false belief they’ve actually done something.
“Welp, I used the hashtag #SaveThePlanet today. I’ve done my part! Looks like my job here is done.”
This isn’t activism.
If you want to make a difference, develop good habits that represent your beliefs, be thoughtful of your environment, educate yourself on the cause(s) you wish to support, help educate others if you so desire, and take action to support those causes.
If it feels a little too easy and like you didn’t actually do anything, you probably didn’t.
Take action. Be the change.
Don’t rely on likes and hashtags to do it for you.
