Small Ways to Make a Big Difference Cover

Introduction

This ebook is a plea for help. It's a voice in a room full of people who care about exactly the same thing but who are entirely oblivious to each other. It's a calling for everyone living on Earth to recognize a new responsibility that we've brought upon ourselves, a responsibility that we created by quenching our thirst for abundance and feeding our lust for social and economic development. It's a responsibility to be responsible.

But what can we do? What changes can we make to our daily lives that will have a positive effect on the rest of the planet? This ebook exists to answer those questions. This ebook is a place to start, a place to get ideas and inspiration for small ways to make a big difference.

Over 40 bloggers contributed more than 100 ways to live more sustainable, to live happier and healthier, to get more out of life, to inspire and share, to reconnect with our true selves, to be a leader, to exist more intelligently.

More than 100 ways that to begin setting an example to be the change we wish to see in the world.
