I’m back!! I took quite a long blog break and now, I am recharged =)
On this post, I want to talk about being O.C. about green living. Before, the definition of being O.C. (well, my definition) was just about staying away from viruses and germs and using whatever product promised such a claim. Now, though, we find out that it is actually these harmful chemicals that possibly cause our problems in the first place. Being O.C. is also about looking at the big picture and seeing that everything you do affects other aspects of, not just your life, but other people’s lives as well. Let’s take an example:
- That bottle of mineral water you drink contains harmful chemicals like BPA that affect your health.
- Once you throw it away, it goes into a landfill.
- A landfill that has millions of other plastic bottles and trash that will leach other harmful chemicals into the ground water or go into our fresh water systems.
- The ground water or rain water becomes polluted and we bathe in it and drink it
- And again, it affects our health.
It’s a vicious cycle that people have been warning us about for years. Some people call it environmentalism, being green, sustainability. To me, it’s a simple line of thinking — everything is connected — and we have to be O.C. in thinking about the positive effects or the negative consequences of our actions.
Generally, people find it hard to start a sustainable lifestyle because it can be overwhelming. There are various sources though which can give us very practical and easy tips. One of them is Green Living. It’s a new show on living a sustainable lifestyle. Hosted by my friend, Paolo Abrera, who co-owns Tripleshot Media (the company producing this show for ANC) with Jake de Guzman, Green Living aims to make sustainable living more understandable and practical.

My aim is to really live more sustainably because what goes around does come around. I hope shows like these can slowly help everyone live sustainably also.
