Yes, I’ve heard all of the criticisms of /r/ZeroWaste. That it’s not doing enough, that it’s focusing on the wrong things, that lifestyle emissions aren’t the main source of our problems, etc.
How can it do more, focus on the correct things, and make a bigger impact on non-personal emissions?
I focused on growing it when other subreddits weren’t providing much of an outlet for personal involvement beyond voting. Not that it isn’t important but people need more engagement than just around election times.
Now that it’s much larger, how would you envision a community being more productive that is passionate about climate change mitigation/adaptation, general environmental awareness, and that is comprised of people willing to put in extra effort/make sacrifices to help the environment?
Does its message need to evolve?
How can the community be better organized?
What would be good things to get the community to start doing or do more of?
What else would you recommend?
Thanks for reading. I wanted to step out of the echo-chamber and ideally get constructive and productive suggestions for improvement.
