Go Green: Trash: Looks Like Another Issue We Must Tackle Ourselves
Every time I see or hear about a least-devloped country or any area, there is always an area where trash is everywhere. There are poor and poverty-stricken people living in an area where trash is all over the ground. People are sleeping in and around heaps of trash.
I used to say that adults are adults, the children matter the most. Children definitely do in all cases, but adults and young adults do also. They are the mothers and fathers that need to be offered a good life in order to maintain the health of their children.
What is wrong with incineration? What is wrong with metal drums and burning trash? What action do you think will be more harmful to people's health and the environment; letting the trash stay or burning it?
When I see trash near water bodies, it is too dangerous to all our health because of all the chemical components of trash and waste in general.
Poverty is common, too common in places, but when there are lowly developed areas, abandoned areas, and neglected poverty-stricken areas where people live in squalors with trash everywhere, that is something that should not be tolerated.
This is shameful in all societies. This lack of serious control upon all waste everywhere is something that puts us all in danger or at risk of disease. We share the same air, the same water, and the same earth.
If there is no waste disposal system that picks up and transports trash to be destroyed, then there needs to be a metal drum in every backyard at least. I hope that these countries, all countries, are considerate enough to at least provide this.
This problem can reach all of us because water, land, and air are all shared regardless of wherever we live. No one is exempt from this problem.
The change to a clean and controlled environment needs to happen on an individual level. This doesn't need to be a group-led effort. The change is more successful when it begins with the individual.
This blog post is for everyone that may live in these situations anywhere in the world. All my blog posts are for the individual in the world. We can take care of our community on our own. This is the way it should be. In this life, this is the way it has to be.
