Here’s a bit of a rant, but, keep with me.
So, we started this company to help people. We wanted to offer a healthy alternative to skin care for men, but that’s not our end game. We want to work towards a better world. So, we leave the smallest footprint we can put on the planet we live in. How can you do that in a modern world, though? It’s a hard question. Well, here’s my half-cocked answer… BE NICE!
Now, I know that doesn’t sound like anything that will help the environment. You know what, it won’t. But, it’s a start. Here’s why. If you start to care about the people around you, you might start to care about the environment they live in. It’s about caring for your fellow MAN, and I use that term loosely. By MAN, I mean people in general. Here’s the thing, we all think about ourselves first. It’s time for a change and what better time than the holidays I say. It always brings out some ‘nice-ness’ in the meanest, even if once a season.
Last week, I was on the subway. There were these kids, (I’m gonna say around 15 yrs. Old), who would not give up their seat for an older woman. I automatically stood up, and gave away my seat, because that’s what my mother taught me (Be more mindful toward others). I didn’t do it to get any gratification, it’s a value what I was taught. The woman in question was very happy, and was gracious. After that, those same kids were visibly uncomfortable. They learned from that. One simple act of kindness, taught a group of people what it might mean to be a gentleman, not entirely, but a bit.
That’s the sentiment. Being a gentleman is not about acts of kindness, it’s about altruism. Being a proper MAN is about sticking to your moral guns. Living by your principals, is vital. Consider it a code, in which you need to follow, otherwise you falter!
If you can live like that, as a MAN then you can understand the importance of the surrounding environment. Then, you can really start to care.
P.S. Show someone you care this Holiday by letting them know about The 3Pete face, beard and aftershave in one! Offer them a healthier alternative, that starts from what you put on your body (That goes into your body) Be nice.
