I love litter picking, and it's a must do

Posted by lau zabo on

Since childhood I have been anxious about littering and its effects on our environment. I can’t understand why some people discard rubbish at the side of the road instead of putting it in a bin.
Humans class themselves as the most intelligent species on earth but with 30 million tonnes of litter being collected from UK streets annually, I refuse to agree with this statement. Intelligence should be measured by the way we live and the actions we perform to protect our environment. With a global climate change disaster waiting around the corner how can we regard ourselves as intelligent?
I began litter picking ten years ago in Budapest and have since continued this habit living in Essex and Spain. Whilst I enjoy litter picking, it is not something I should have to do. The more hours spent picking up other peoples’ litter, the more anxious I become for the welfare of our planet. Ask yourselves these questions next time you think of throwing that one crisp packet out of
the car window:
Who taught me that littering was okay?
What will I teach my children?
Do I care about the future of the planet?

I am happy knowing I have done my part yet I cannot possibly take on the responsibility for the rest of the world. Earth protects us with its lush greenery and vibrant wildlife so why can’t we protect her? All it takes is a bit of effort on your part. Pick up your litter and know your contributing to a cleaner planet.

Earth Day is here finally

“The Earth is a fine place and worth fighting for.”

—Ernest Hemingway

Earth Day marks an annual date where people can showcase their support for environmental protection across the globe. Dating from 1970, now a whopping one billion individuals and 190 countries have mobilised to take action against environmental injustices. This year, all events via the ‘earth day’ organisation will be conducted virtually, allowing everyone from all corners of the globe to participate. Events such as the “We Shall Breathe” virtual summit and the “Teach for the Planet: Global Education Summit” will help provide an insight on how different institutions impact climate change and how individuals can do their part. 
In a consumerist world where fossil fuels are being exhausted and greenhouse gases are polluting our atmosphere, it is even more important to take a stance against environmental abuse. Although we should celebrate our world and the beauty it has to offer every day, the 22nd of April marks an occasion where people can gather communally and strike action against world leaders and institutions’ who perpetuate climate change.
Sat at home, you may be thinking: What can I do? Start by consuming less fast fashion and instead supporting local, sustainable businesses. With food production accounting for one-quarter of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions you may want to reconsider your diet; do you really need to consume meat and dairy or has it just become habit? By making these conscious decisions you are effectively contributing to a better planet. On a smaller scale, picking up litter you see on the street and opting for public transport opposed to car journeys will also have a big impact, even if you don’t think it at the time. Respect the gifts Mother Earth has given us and we can all work towards a greener future.
