“Feet And Funds”

The products we use, and the things that we buy,

Imprint this World with the values inside,

If we support firms that damage the planet,

We can’t claim to care, by any means, damn it!

The impact of livestock for human consumption,

Our throwaway culture, and wasteful production,

Earth can’t take much more, we’re treated like fools,

But our choices and money are powerful tools.


Yes, I am indeed donning my Eco-Warrior hat today. An E.W. doesn’t need to be continually vocal, we can say lots with our deeds and decisions alone, but a silent E.W, someone with insight that is beneficial to the planet and it’s inhabitants, who never shares said insight, creates a missed opportunity.

Those with the knowledge of what steps are available, to make sure that there’s a planet and a human population around to welcome in the next Century, should share those gems from time to time, or this ball of rock we call home, will become yet another lifeless sphere within our Galaxy.

I watched a fantastic documentary late last year called “Cowspiracy”, (currently on Netflix) which opened my eyes loads, with a knock on effect I hadn’t even contemplated! It’s well worth a watch! There are also loads of other documentaries, books and audiobooks, all showing us how best to heal our beloved planet.

When we wield this super important knowledge, we soon come across companies who are not looking out for us or the planet at all! Well, these organisations will not receive my custom, I walk away and support ethical businesses instead, and if enough of us do this, it forces other businesses to be more responsible if they wish to stay afloat!

That is the positive power of a “Feet And Funds” movement! What other ways can we help to reverse the damage humanity is causing? Let us know your thoughts …sharing is caring! 😉

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have two books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Confront The Shadows". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared here, after which, why not grab a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
