New Yorkers are pioneers, so it’s no surprise that they have taken the lead in choosing to live healthy and responsible lifestyles. Making choices that are good for you and the environment have never been easier.
What we put in our environment is what we put in our bodies. The organic and healthy eating movement has spread through many New York communities because people have become informed and want to live longer and happier (as studies have shown that health is often linked to happiness) lives. So why should the air we breathe be any less of a health concern? When we choose to buy organic, or locally sourced produce, we are acting environmentally responsibly, which benefits the individual, the community and the planet. Similarly, the clean energy movement benefits increase exponentially as the number of participants grows.
It’s a collective effort comprised of individual commitment. “Strength in numbers” isn’t just some cliché to motivate consumers. In the clean energy space the increased number of participants have a direct and significant effect on the cost (driving it down) of renewables and consequently making it even more accessible to the public.
