We have heard the phrase global warming and most of us by now know what that means. The goal is not to focus on what or why global warming is happening but rather what the results of not taking steps toward better consumption could have on society. You always hear phrases like “It’s the simple pleasures in life that make it beautiful” and “take time to stop and smell the roses”. Have you ever wondered what would happen if the resources we consume became dependent on us for their survival. We see it all the time with endangered species. Their home torn down to build a new shopping centre or to supply the millions of paper products we consume every day. Humans have to take in the animals and create them habitats so they can merely survive. Life is never the same for those animals when they are the last of their species. What happens when the life that once was able to sustain itself needs us to depend on? Are we going to support the life that gave us those simple pleasures or are we going to let the species take a spot in history and only have the pictures in textbooks and our memories to remind us of how beautiful the world was when flowers existed? Flowers are not only symbolic of life but also of love, joy, sorrow and celebration. The question I asked myself was: what would it look like for nature to be dependent on us? I explored the different ways that nature helps us and thought about what we could offer nature in return.
