No More Good Cop / Bad Cop
Sustainability Will Only Be Possible If We Design The Future Together
Let's Rewrite The Playbook!
The good cop / bad cop routine is a terrible way to spark change in someone. A reaction, sure. Or a confession. But it's got a really poor success rate when it comes to lasting change, motivation to change, or anything change related.
Change is up to us. Simple as that. And we're not going to get there quickly enough if we hold each other back by policing each other over sustainable living practices. We've stopped mixing with any of that good cop / bad cop hullaballoo — coming from just about every message board, Twitter feed or IG you care to mention.
We're determined to move beyond black / white, left / right solutions and make real progress. Starting yesterday. And in lots of different directions, too. Not the same ooooold things that we've all tried before. You know the ones. The ones we know stopped working long ago, but do them anyway because we're all so busy and we don't know what else to do. Isn't that one of the worst feelings in the world? Knowing something could be better but having to do it the broken way because it's too big for you to fix.
And how do some folk try to fix it online? Good cop / bad cop routines designed to educate and... what, exactly? Half-shame people into doing the right thing? Do they actually think anyone will blend a good habit into their lives because someone's treated them like a suspect?
Seriously, we don't get it. We don't understand and we don't care. We're done with that loop. For good.
You won't catch us pull any holier than thou stuff.
Or thrash out any standover tactics in a Twitter rage.
Not. Our. Style.
It's time to rethink the way we approach sustainability. Make it easier, more fun—even couture!
We'll get there so much faster and keep to our commitments a helluva lot longer if we get there together. Making the time to solve things in the simplest ways that work for most people, so they can take action easily and make impacts quickly. Always trusting that we'll kick another goal in the next upgrade, too. Staying focused on the best we can do here and now, one intention at a time...
All aboard — let's get wanderlost!
P.S. We know of many wonderful, dedicated, and heroic people in the police force
