Each person disposes tons of garbage each year. Plastic bottles, paper and common household disposals amount to enormous work for the garbage disposal companies. Although recycling is the way of the future, the output far outweighs the needs that can be coped with by recycling companies. Awareness on the subject of use, and waste of the earths precious commodities will help curb the amount of garbage disposed by each person.
Every commodity purchased comes in a wrapping that can be only thrown into the garbage bin. Plastic bottles holding milk and soft drinks are thrown away as very little use for these commodities can be found. The enormous levels of the earth’s resources are consumed in making theses plastic objects. Crude oil is the basic component used for manufacturing these items. All that remains is heaps of unwanted rubbish ready to be disposed off.
Even those living alone are equally responsible for accumulation of too much garbage. Singles most often eat take aways dan seldom cook a home cooked meal. Paper bags and plastic containers used for holding food accumulates and is thrown into garbage bins. Basically each person contributes to the contamination and littering of the earth.
Once used, all resources are thrown away. The only way forward in this matter is to choose how to live wisely. Soft drink companies and juice outlets spend millions of dollars on manufacturing containers for storing beverages which are sold to the public. Inevitably, the only way to enhance business is to provide some kind of container to hold these liquids. It will be highly impractical to carry your own container each time you wish to buy clean water , juice or even milk for that matter.
While most countries are finding suitable ways to dispose off garbage the output is far greater than expected. Rotting or fermenting garbage can be used to generate gas which serves many purposes. It is up to the public to be conscious of this problem and as far as possible, help the earth preserve its resources. Degradable plastic and biodegradable products have been the only positive way forward for most countries.
Although an inconvenience, one needs to buy just one or two canvass shopping bags and carry this with them, when out shopping. This will reduce the use of paper and plastic bags. Just like the old days, it would be nice to take your own jug or container when buying juice or milk. Although a threat of hygiene and combating illness, new ways need to be devised to sell quantities of any liquid to public, encouraging them to bring in their own containers.
Products will be far cheaper as the cost of the container automatically falls away. Garden waste and waste should be converted into compost instead. The question is ”how long” will the earth be able to sustain the needs of each person?
Loads of plastic shopping bags, paper towels, all things wrapped in plastic needs to be reduced. Large companies using enormous amounts of printing paper, should consider printing on both sides before disposing off this paper. Most often recyclable material gets wasted and thrown into garbage where it can not be recycled.
Once again without any doubt we will soon be buried in our own garbage. Take a look around your immediate environment and realization will finally set in.
