The problem of waste or garbage is mushrooming everywhere in the world. The inventors of garbage are not unknown to you because ‘you’ yourself are the inventors of garbage. But only being the inventors of garbage is not enough, you should also know the correct way to deal and dispose your garbage. The correct way to dispose the garbage is very important because it will also help reduce the pollution and save our mother Earth. In the past, our land used to be weaved with soft green natural carpet which was a pleasing as well as a healthful sight for all living beings. But now with the advancement of technology, changing lifestyles as well as the birth of non biodegradable substances like plastic as well as other toxic substances created by us ; now as far as one’s eyes can see , there is garbage peppered over the roads, water bodies , public places etc. That’s so unhygienic isn’t it ? I know we don’t like to view such unpleasing sight but we all should remember that such a sight is a result of our own careless attitude of disposing our own waste/garbage inspite of ( only some of )us being literate.
When you buy and use certain biodegradable and non biodegradable substances, you should know that waste will be generated but if you don’t dispose it in a correct manner then you yourself will attract the death of humans like you as well as numerous other living creatures, some of the species which might even vanish from the surface of the earth and will also affect our environment. Improper disposal of your garbage/waste can make you murders of some innocent lives (humans as well as the lives of other living beings) on this planet and God alone knows how many such crimes you and I have committed till today. And I don’t think anyone of us will like to continue all this inspite of knowing its repercussions. Isn’t it ? I believe that all of us are alive now because of the nature and the environment. And I don’t think anyone of us , want to leave this earth very soon but sometimes the way in which I view myself as well as my fellow human beings disposing their waste incorrectly makes me think as if we all want to die tomorrow. Just as today ,humans are suffering from numerous diseases in the same manner I can feel our natural environment suffering from a dreadful sickness, just because of the negligence of humans. I know that we are humans and can approach the doctor whenever we are sick and gobble down the prescribed medicines to get well. But what about our natural environment who generously gives us in abundance but is unable to visit any doctor and take medicines on its own ? Our simple change in attitude of protecting the environment can act as a priceless medicine to cure and protect our sick environment.
Some helpful ways to deal with your waste according to me are:
1 In my opinion, I feel that inspite of using plastic bags for shopping whenever it is unnecessary we can stich and use cloth bag as it is an alternative which is eco friendly and will reduce the risk of pollution.
2 The wet garbage which we generate in our homes which comprises of fruit and vegetable peels along with fish waste etc can be turned into a useful manure by digging a hole in the ground and burying the wet waste with soil.
3 I believe that the government should create more awareness through media and workshops about about how we can tackle with garbage.
4 We can make use , as well as tell our neighbours to make use of the 3 R’s i.e. recycle, reduce and reuse to solve the problem of waste/garbage.
5 I feel that some garbage can be used to create mind blowing wealth out of waste items which can help us earn some money by selling it.
6 We must segregate our waste into dry and wet waste, before dumping it into garbage bags , as we should also help and think about the people working in this industry.
We must not throw our waste into somebody else’s property as this is not fair and might result in a conflict and cause social disharmony. Medical waste , sanitary pads , diapers etc should be carefully disposed in proper places. We must not discriminate( but treat them with respect,) and encourage the people collecting and segregating the waste , as they work for all of us , help to keep our environment clean and some what contribute in solving the threat of garbage. The government must also increase employment in the waste management sector and this will also help us achieve Swachh Bharat Mission. The manure generated from wet waste at home can be use in our kitchen garden to grow healthy organic vegetables and fruits. We all must know that our waste/garbage is our own responsibility and we should take care of it and dispose it in a proper way which will also contribute in protecting our environment and mother earth.
We should care for the environment just like how a mother cares for her child, as our environment too cares for us in the same way. We must not be ashamed to segregate our garbage/waste or even pick up the garbage from the road and throw it in the dustbin as it’s not a shame to do so but it will give you a feeling of satisfaction. But you must be ashamed if till now you are disposing your garbage at an undesirable place. I will pray to God and say sorry to him on behalf of all the humans for creating and destroying the environment made by him . And will ask God to change our minds and help us adopt better ways to vanish the problem of garbage from the earth by helping all of us act responsibly. I would be elated if this piece of writing of mine , will have a lasting imprint on your mind and if it would help you change for better and save our mother earth together!
So let’s all of us, act responsibly towards our waste and the environment. So let’s begin to act now!
