; saving the earth
Earth is not just our home. It has been a learning ground for us, to learn about ourselves, and the universe.
Yet we have time and time again, continuously harm Her. Despite the many warnings such as global warming, we throw our ‘trash’ mindlessly, on ground, in oceans and skies above. And any half-hearted attempt to ‘save the earth’ is ephemeral.
Sometimes we are reminded that the earth is precious, like Earth Hour or like some related videos circulating on social media. And we are all enthusiastic about it for that hour. But afterwards, our efforts are pretty much wasted as we go back to our bad habits.
We grow trees just to chop more down, most of the time, unnecessarily. We pick up our trash at home, but in public, our trash seems to have a mind of its own and crawls out of our hands and onto the floor.
I just feel like the majority of the human race isn’t putting in enough effort to make things right. Certainly, there are activists, ecologists and volunteers etc., who are giving in extra time to try and make up for the others. But it is definitely not enough.
And to those out there who are trying to make a difference, I salute you. And I am slowly adjusting my lifestyle to follow in the footsteps of those who were successful in living a waste free life.
And to those who are struggling to, I would like to encourage you to keep going because you are making a difference even if it’s a teeny weeny tiny bit! 😀
