Making the World Better

Aug-21-2015 By Barbara Zak

The earth has faced many challenges throughout the centuries. One challenge is the amount of garbage that is thrown away on a daily basis. While it can be easy to accuse corporations and individuals of error, the reality is that everyone needs to address the problem.

Picking Up
Trash can be a common sight to see when people are in the city or in the country. Trash can be so commonplace that people ignore it. In fact, picking up trash may get more headlines than the amount of trash that are in various communities today. There are numerous ideas and groups that have teamed together in order to pick up trash. While these efforts must not be overlooked, an individual has the tremendous opportunity to help. The reality is that a community is immensely helped when trash is picked up and thrown away. There are some who do not like to touch filthy garbage, and that is understandable. A possible solution is to offer hand sanitizer at various garbage receptacles around a community. Therefore, people can throw away trash and clean their hands without having to worry about germs. Other people prefer to have two bags when out walking. One bag contains the garbage, and the other bag is like a glove and picks up the garbage safely. When people pick up trash, it makes a big difference.

Using Better Designs
In the past, not much thought was given to the amount of plastic that was made for designing water bottles. However, companies have been spending time and resources in order to design water bottles that do not use as much plastic. Although it is a small measure of plastic that is saved, it can add up to a large amount over time. There are plenty of other examples of companies and individuals who choose to go with or create eco-friendly products. Although some products may be pricey, the efforts do help the environment and keep the world looking good. Some groups offer financial incentives to people who create new products that can help the environment, and that can definitely motivate people.

Although the earth is large, each person makes a difference. After all, the earth can get dirtier or cleaner. The choice is up to humanity, and people are certainly giving their best to ensure that it becomes a cleaner and better place to live.
