The reality is it’s governments and big corporations who need to make major changes, and us voters who can influence them to take action, but maybe you’d also like to feel like you have a little more immediate control than you get from firing off emails to your representatives, and waiting for the next election cycle to cast your vote (both of which you should still do). …
