As we become wealthier and consume more, we are proceeding quantities of rubbish. Our largest cities produce on average 760 000 tons of solid waste per day. It is predicted that there will be a two- fold increase -1.8 million tons by 2025. Have you ever enjoyed the sky from an open field? Believe me, enjoying an open view of the sky from Finland’s remote areas is one of the most amazing views you can witness. Or have you enjoyed the sky from a desert? Legend says, one who enjoyed a full night gazing into the sky from a desert, will not ever forget in his life. I talked about how light pollution is distracting us lately. These virtual boundaries like phones, lights, sounds etc really hinder us from enjoying the great mother nature!
Start Recycling For The Future Generation
As you know, all countries are very interested towards reusable energy like solar energy. Have you ever wondered why? Because at the rate we are using our natural resources and polluting the environment in a large scale, soon we will find ourselves in a unliveable world. That is why we need to start practicing good acts to save the earth. If you saw Wall-E, you know what I am talking about. Do not wonder if something like Wall-E happens in near future. We need to ensure a safe environment for our coming generations and we have to leave an exemplary world so that they can build upon it.
It seems almost too much to handle. And it is. Much of Asia is literally wasting away. The growing volume of toxicity of waste is simply threatening to overwhelm our cities. The proper recovery, treatment or disposal of garbage is beyond the financial resources of many national and municipal governments. Some municipalities are spending as much as half their budgets dealing with garbage. And even so, it is common that half of all the waste goes uncollected. Much of the added burden is packaging from consumer products and the products themselves-all of which need years, even centuries, to decompose. Four of every five products we buy are discarded after a single use. It all makes the handling of solid wastes much more complicated and expensive. No one can avoid the consequences of the uncontrolled garbage glut. When an environment is being populated, everyone regardless of his or her economic status or functions suffers. Contamination does not differentiate between rich and poor. The garbage crisis more than just an environmental issue as it also threatens national economics by impairing competitiveness on world markets discouraging tourism and hindering industrial development.
The failure to act decisively now will be an environmental and financial disaster. Where garbage is not properly treated, soil contamination and groundwater and surface water pollution are inevitable. Repairing this damage can cost a hundred times more than properly disposing of garbage in the first place.
And it’s not too late to start doing the right thing. Everyone can do their part. It is not difficult to put recyclable items into plastic bags or to put them into recycling bins near our homes. It is not too late to avoide garbage calamity. Thus, we should be cautious about disposing our wastes and help to clean up the world.
