Eyeing the environment through the lens of the Ten Commandments

I had been hired to work on creating a major traveling exhibition about the environment. My expertise was in education and developing museum exhibitions, not in the sciences or ecology. A nationally recognized environmentalist joined us as a consultant, and although we were relying heavily on her expertise, I was also doing some research on my own.

Some of what I learned alerted me to the need for more committed action of my own to benefit the environment. Yes, I was aware of the familiar call to reduce, reuse, and recycle, but I can't say I was truly contributing to any solutions. It wasn't until I started working on the exhibit, getting a deeper picture of the issues and the environmental abuse, that I felt I needed to become more active.
