This week’s feature is about a man trying to build a more sustainable battery. This got me thinking about how people actually perceive environmentalism. It stands to reason that while many support environmental protection and preservation, it doesn’t necessarily mean they are all environmentalist. For instance, I support most causes environmental, but wouldn’t say I’m an environmentalist because I don’t do much that helps nature. Were I some organic cotton-wearing free spirit living off the grid, then I’d be an environmentalist. What determines environmentalism, and do you think you qualify?
