Do you play with plants you see? Take the leaves and flowers for no reason?
Don’t you participate in the Earth Hour?
Does your family burn your garbage?
Do you sleep with the lights on?
Do you let the TV turned on for a long time though you aren’t really watching?
Do you throw candy wrappers in the streets?
Do you leave your bottles and plastics in buses?
Do you let the water from the faucet flow though you aren’t using it?
Do you use an air conditioner though it isn’t too hot?
Don’t you stop your companion from littering?
If you have a bike, do you use it?
Do you prefer walking or riding vehicles when going someplace near?
Do you smoke?
These are just a few of the many things people do everyday that result to the gradual destruction of the Earth’s environment. Some are ignorant, but what hurts is the fact that most are aware; they just act like idiots, or worse, just completely shrug it off.
A very significant truth that human beings fail to realize is that everyone must contribute: cease from doing such faulty acts and begin to do those that will aid in the conservation of our home. Two heads have always been better than one. There may be 90% of the world’s total population that doesn’t do the actions listed above, but the 10% who does greatly affects the goodness of the former. It’s like a cup of water placed on a straightened palm. Incline it the slightest bit and the water will spill. The palm must be kept straight for the water not to be wasted. 90% is not enough, 100% is what the world needs.
If these don’t stop soon, who knows what will happen? We might wake up one day living in the worst place.. or having nowhere to live. In every little action, the Earth suffers little by little.
