Final Blog Post

Well, as we wrap up with Stay Green Golf, there is much retrospection to consider. At the beginning of the summer, I thought that this project would require large changes for marginal differences in my environmental impact. However, as I researched more and more, I found that being environmentally conscious should not be perceived as a chore. Rather, I now firmly believe that it is our duty to take care of the Earth we live on. From interviews to product changes, the changes I’ve made have been very easy to do. Unfortunately, one cannot be content with simply changing our own actions. In a broader context, making product changes and habit changes embraces the individualization of responsibility that corporations and institutions impose on us consumers. Although we should continue to do our part in helping out the environment, we really should additionally advocate for large-scale institutional changes. Institutions and businesses alike can make a massive difference since their changes will be affecting a whole market as opposed to an individual. All in all, though, Stay Green Golf has been a blast to create and manage. My goal from day one was to improve my game and environmental impact at the same time and I am happy to say that I met that goal.
