Action: Remember....

Every tiny change has an impact. If you make one decision to buy Tesco own brand chocolate rather than a bar of Cadbury's you have made one decision for the better. Every ethical decision you make is one that wasn't made before so congratulate yourself on that rather than worry if you slip up.

Correctly executed petitions can have a huge impact, be they political or social. Political ones (like writing to your representative) have helped put pressure on the EU to make it compulsory to label palm oil in products. Social ones (like writing to YouTube or Unilever) have helped get videos removed from YouTube and get companies to agree to taking ethical steps to improve their corporate behaviour. Just by adding your voice to a list can help.

With everything you are not alone fighting for the good of the planet. One person can do a lot but they cannot stand against power, corruption and money alone. Together people can make a real differece, just look at the number of people who sign petitions, that shows how many people out there care.

Being informed is one of the most important things that you can do. If you want any more information about any of the issues we teach about, feel free to contact us with your questions, we'll try to respond as soon as we can.
