This slogan has been used by different groups, including environmental, conservation, and anti-nuclear testing. Another popular version of the mantra is “Everyone Lives Downstream” and symbolizes the ideal that everything in nature is connected and the actions of one can have a deep impact on many. Oftentimes, homes that are located in neighborhoods downwind from factories or plants sell for less as their location is perceived as undesirable or risky. Environmental groups use this slogan to bring attention to the fact that no matter where facilities dump waste or engage in testing, they will affect the people and wildlife in the surrounding area because toxins will eventually drift toward populated areas.
