With social issues, often the biggest hurdle you face is that the benefit of what you are asking people to do is not immediately apparent.

An office-goer who begins to recycle his plastic bottles won’t notice any significant difference in the size of the plastic patch in the oceans.

A smoker who quits is unlikely to notice any change in his lungs right away.
