How Can I Be An Agent of Change In My Environment? I remember before I use to throw thing anywhere, I throw anywhere I want whenever I want. Maybe its because of laziness, tired of throwing our trashes in the right place because its far or we are Just not used to carrying the trash with us to throw it in the right place. Now I realize its an immature thing to do. So aside from not throwing the garbage or trash in some place else I should also help make a change and help clean up our environment.
How do I do it? Well its not easy if you don’t care about anything t all, because all of us are affected by the calamities we are experiencing today, like the typhoons that destroyed a lot of houses places and families in many parts of our country, the example is the typhoon Ondoy, it affected us all, I know it sucked so bad because the killed a lot of people and destroyed a lot properties of the people.
Then I asked myself why did this happen? How did this happen? I remember my grandmother told me when she was still alive that during their time there were no flood before, and if there is it wouldn’t kill a person and it would not destroy a lot of hings. Then I started thinking what the difference between before and today?
Then I looked around, what is happening to our nature, in our society, there is no discipline and respect to our mother nature, we Just throw garbage anywhere we want to, the agricultural land has been changed and constructed for business plan and other buildings or houses, causing the typhoons to flood our cities, the cutting of trees in many forest that also cause the typhoon to flood our cities, the factories that produces chemicals and other gases that affects our ozone layer, the vehicles that roduce dark gases that also affects the ozone layer and eve the way of burning the wastes, it also affects the ozone layer big time, could you imagine how does our ozone look like buy 2012? This is a disaster if we don’t act and controls this things or prevent it from happening. We don’t see our mistakes at first but when we are experiencing its effect we realize that its everything that are happening to us today are because of us. How do we help clean up our environment? Each of us can help even in our own little way. How?
Well if we don’t throw our waste anywhere and we put it to the right lace or we dispose it properly that could help our environment clean, even recycling, we should separate the trashes that can be used to the trashes that should be thrown away. We can also help by Joining to other communities in their organization like “help save our trees”, “help save mother earth”, or even the “clean and green” organization, this will help us revive our dying mother nature. And also we can help our environment with the plastic bags, the plastic bags can be used for other things so we don’t have to throw them when we are not using them anymore, because this is ne of the reasons of flood in our cities.
I used to watch news on tv or even read news in the newspaper and I watched and read a lot of calamities and tragedies that are affecting us, well actually they said it’s the revenge of nature or the punishment of God, because of our failure of protecting our mother earth, or even our failure in for its not a revenge of nature, but who knows what could happen and why it would it happen, besides we are responsible of the things that are happening in our world. As I remember god created us to watch over his creation not to destroy his creation. In our own little way we can help save our environment our mother earth, even in our own little way, and with our little way we can attract other people and even influence them to help us save our environment, because by now our environment is critical because of the things that had destroy it.
We can influence other by making them join with the organization that helps heal our mother nature, and eve show them that in our simple ways we can clean our society and make it a better and clean place. And if we see other people throwing their trash anywhere we could give them an dvice or we can Just get it and throw it for them to make them realize their mistake. Even with our friends we can help our environment by influencing our friends to recycle and not to throw their waste anywhere but in the right place. Also we can save mother earth by reducing the consume of water and electricity. Also the sound technology can help us reduce our consume of electricity.
Imagine us using our electricity with a low consume of it and a low bill of electricity when our nation because of the environmental sound technology. It can help us with our electricity nd a less consume of it. Environmentally sound technologies protect the environment, are less polluting, use all resources in a more sustainable manner, recycle more of their wastes and products, and handle residual wastes in a more acceptable manner than the technologies for which they were substitutes. Environmentally sound technologies in the context of pollution are “process and product technologies” that generate low or no waste, for the prevention of pollution.
They also cover “end of the pipe” technologies for treatment of pollution after it has been generated. Environmentally sound technologies are not Just individual technologies, but total systems which include know-how, procedures, goods and services, and equipment as well as organizational and managerial procedures. This implies that when discussing transfer of technologies, the human resource development and local capacity-building aspects of technology choices, including gender-relevant aspects, should also be addressed. Environmentally sound technologies should be compatible with nationally determined socio-economic, cultural and environmental priorities.
