It's no secret that our earth is in a bad way.  Global warming, climate change, a precarious food industry, pollution, and dwindling fuels are just the tip of the iceberg.  But if you're anything like me, the prospect of "saving the planet" is, um, a little daunting. Especially when you consider that, although we in the western world have the majority of the ability to make a difference, our lawmakers and leaders seem bent on ignoring the copious warning signs -- and we have been left with little recourse or response, other than how we spend our money.

What's a lone westerner to do?

Obviously, one person is not going to be able to make a lot of difference, no matter how hard he or she works. But what if a bunch of us, a big bunch of us, made small, sustainable, and collectively impactful choices? It's my belief that, in this way, we really might be able to (gulp) "save the planet."

That is what Act Small, Think Big is all about -- providing bite-sized tips to help you make changes that will not only make a positive, healing impact on the world, but also often save you some money or improve your health to boot. How's that for a win win?

Also -- please note that these tips are not intended to provoke undue guilt or perfectionism or anything of the sort. It's about doing our best to make a positive difference for ourselves, our children, and generations to come. Progress, not perfection, okay?  We really can make a difference -- together.
