Do you enjoy breathing pure air and drinking clean water? Us too! If you don’t like living in a toxic wasteland, maybe it’s a bit overdue to show Mother Earth some love.
Before telling yourself, “my participation won’t make a difference,” it is crucial to understand that humanity is directly affected by this. Without a sustainable world to live in, humans will inevitably go extinct long before the planet has perished (or you can move to Mars😉). Back in 2014, scientists predicted the earth to last over seven billion more years, but as of 2022, the Earth is predicted to last less than one billion years. How did we lose over six billion years of life expectancy in eight years? Scientists have concluded that we are taking unconstrained amounts of resources from the Earth’s structure and doing nothing to countervail the damage. Although some of the damage is considered to be irreversible, making a difference starts with you. It’s time to do your part! Kosmik Brands is ready to help you explore dope ways you can live a sustainable life that supports our Earth and the environment we live in.
