When considering the cosmos one can feel rather small. Here we are on planet Earth, in our little solar system that lies within the Milky Way; which is just a spec in terms of the known universe. Yet our “blue marble” is home to incredible diversity and infinite wonder.
Nature is perfect and sublime. She provides for us and sustains us. She can inspire and thrill us. There is magic in everything; from our Oceans, Forests and Mountains to the myriad of creatures, plants and cultures. Together we co-exist and call Earth our home.
Through evolution, ignorance and even arrogance we, as a species and society, have gotten out of sync with the natural rhythm of the world. This lack of harmony has manifested in many ways such as global warming, climate change and extinctions. Our own ambition and carelessness is coming back to bite us on the bum!

As small as we are, each of us makes an impact. As more and more people become conscious, there is a growing realisation that we have the power to choose what kind of impact we make on the planet and in society; and what kind of legacy we leave behind. Through raised awareness and mindfulness we can experience a fulfilling, meaningful and rewarding life that is of benefit to all on Earth.
The ways of the world are changing to ensure that there are enough resources to go around for everyone. People are getting smarter, asking questions, reading labels and refuse to pay for poor and unethical practices. Innovative green businesses are born everyday, the renewable energy industry is soaring, and ecotourism is booming. Green is the new black; eco-consciousness and sustainability are trending!
As individuals there are many sustainable habits we can incorporate into our daily routines. One easy feel-good thing we can do is to choose eco-friendly accommodation when travelling for business or leisure. Supporting a place that makes an effort to conserve the environment and uplift their community makes a positive difference and reduces your travel footprint. Viva Green Holidays!
Being part of the solution, the revolution and the evolution is where it`s at! Feel the rhythm of nature and move into harmony.
