With your busy schedule and overwhelming family life, you may be thinking that you don’t have time to take action for the environment! Indeed, some actions take time. But others are very easily within your reach, without any particular effort. Want to know which ones?
” I don’t have time to act for the environment! »: this is a phrase that I hear a lot lately. And it’s not the only…
What takes time…
In the same genre, I also hear these two great classics:
- “I work and I have children, tell me when I can find time to care about ecology. »
- ” Zero waste is good but you need time to go shopping in bulk then time to cook, I don’t want to spend my free time on that. »
And sincerely, I understand.
Indeed, some actions take time. Do your shopping in bulk is a real example. It’s less simple than the drive, you have to go to the store, queue to tare your containers, take the time to help yourself, queue again to pay, and back home transfer to storage.
This requires a minimum investment of time.
Likewise, if you decide to grow your own vegetables to eat without pesticides, again, it will take time.
But not all stocks do.
Do small gestures count too?
Some small gestures seem, a priori, within everyone’s reach:
- Sharply reduce its beef consumption does not take time. For example, in the canteen you can take the other dish rather than the ground beef thawed in sole mode. At home, we choose to take another meat.
- Lower your heating by one degree does not take time. Yes, come on, time to put on a sweater!
- not not replace cell phone, does it take a long time? No, it’s the opposite. There is no action to do, we even save time!
What I want to illustrate through these few examples is that there is lots of action who may have a favorable impact on the environment, which do not take time.

Zero Waste: 3 simple tips to get started
What if we stopped the clichés about ecology?
How to act for the environment concretely ?
What takes time is to get to identify actions that will have an impact on the cause we defend, like climate change for me.
And among the actions that have an impact, what will then take time is to identify the actions and see how you are going to be able to concretely put them in placein your everyday life.
In conclusion, what takes time is to research to find the actions that have an impact and to easily integrate them into our way of life.
But the good news is that it’s doable !
