In honor of Black History month, I will share earth-focused quotes by known Black environmentalists each Monday. My way of thanks and appreciation for my ancestors/peers that are making an environmental difference. Check out the medium article in my references to see a list of 28 Black environmentalists.
Today’s quote is by Jerome Ringo the founder of renewable energy firm – Zoetic Global. Jerome’s background in Louisiana’s petrochemical industry aided in him becoming an international and community-focused environmental activist.
The quote reminds me that everyone doesn’t value the environment nor it’s inhabitants – which quite honestly boggles my brain. I personally want my children and future generations to have an environment to admire and live within. It’s one of the reasons why I daily make sustainable actions. Can you imagine how our environment and Mother Earth would be if EVERY person performed an earth-focused action?
