I, not long ago, watched a Netflix documentary called “Chasing Coral.”
I highly recommend it. Not only does it show the beauty this world holds, but also the beauty we are letting go. As humans, myself included, we too often get wrapped up in our own lives. Even the most selfless of us do it. What we forget is we would be nothing without the natural world that surrounds us.
I won’t go into all the details but the documentary goes into interesting and depressing facts of how our ocean water is lowering. With this, the coral reef is bleaching and dying. This beautiful life is diminishing, and the coral is just one of many problems our world is having.
Think about all the unnatural things that we now have in this world. How long our world has been around, what these things could be impacting. The amount of people with electricity, vehicles, trash, excess clothing, cleaners, excessive water use, plastic, electronics, the list could go on.
A lot of this we have heard growing up. We need to reuse, reduce, recycle. Save our environment. What are we going to do about it?
So my question is, what matters to you? What in this world is something that is worth saving? What are some things we can do to help? What can we as a “be a murwoman” community bring awareness to?
Also, I would love to know of some blogs that are dedicated to this sort of thing, helping our world, the issues we face, and how we, as individuals and groups, can help?
