#246: If your day to day responsibilities were taken care of and you could throw yourself completely behind a cause, what would it be?
That’s a tricky one! My first thought was that I’d throw myself into stopping the use and production of Palm Oil, and help conservation efforts protect endangered primates, such as orangutans, chimps and gorillas. For anyone who hasn’t been following my blog, this is something I’m fairly passionate about as I think primates are absolutely fascinating, but unfortunately the awareness of Palm Oil is still rather low. When you really look into it, it’s terrifying to see how many products contain this killer oil. To make everyone’s life easier however, the Rainforest Foundation have kindly put a database together, clearly indicating which products we should be avoiding! What are you waiting for… it couldn’t be easier!
However, the more I think about it, if all of my responsibilities were taken care of I’d put all my efforts into stopping terrorist organisations such as ISIS from killing more innocent people and journalists, finding the hundreds of school girls Boko Haram kidnapped five months ago and just putting a stop to extremists in general. How many more people need to be killed before these groups realise – war achieves nothing and never will.
