Climate conversation with Mascha Bongenaar
8 billion drops in the ocean.
Somewhere in 2020, I started to panic about the state of our planet. I wanted to do something about climate change, but had no idea where to start.
When I talked to people about this, I discovered there are many others who have felt the way I did, but have found their footing in climate actions. Through these comics, I want to show there are many different things you can do and they all matter.
In case you missed it, here’s the first one.
The second comic in this series is about Mascha Bongenaar, who runs a Dutch blog and Instagram account called ‘Duurzame Keuzes’ (Sustainable Choices).

I loved this comic! It really can get so overwhelming. I've had conversation with friends about the 'it's only the big companies and governments that can make a real difference' thing.
Some of them end up deciding that what they do doesn't matter. And some think yes, companies and governments can make the biggest impact - but they still want to make responsible choices on a personal level. I fluctuate depending on how overwhelmed I feel in the moment. But ultimately I'm a big fan of personal responsibility. So I think that is my path with it.
