But 3 years ago, returning to Mexico after several years abroad, I felt that many people recognise that an environmental crisis is imminent (we live the signs of it as daily frustrations: increasing traffic, environmental contingencies, water shortages, flooding etc) and they complain about structural problems but few are congruent in their daily habits. That is to say: they don't know what they could do differently.
Which led me to want to share some of the simple actions that I apply at home and with my family, which I do not think are difficult nor more complicated. And at the same time I wanted to learn more about some options which take a larger investment to install, but can have bigger long term effects like installing dry toilets in the city, recycling grey water in high-rises, solar panels and rain water harvesting.
I seek to share all this with other families so that it can become more commonplace, accessible and so there can be greater understanding that everyone can start to do something.”
