Watch What Happens When Humanity Ignores Garbage
Here is a video Raising awareness to pollution. When i arrive to the beach, the first thing i do is look around and pick up any garbage that there might be. Anything going into the ocean or anything that can be blown by the wind into the ocean, cups, bags.
It is our responsibility to take action and keep our world clean. Whatever we can do, no matter how small. It still makes an impact and we have to be the collective dents to make a big enough impact and that can only happen if we all work together. Work towards bettering our world.
I see many people ignore the garbage. They just walk by it or sit next to it. They figure it’s not theirs so why should they pick it up and that is the problem with our world. We turn a blind eye to shit that matters. We go on with that mentality, that mentality of well let someone else do that and that just continues and it’s why we have this constant pollution piling up.
Instead of picking up we just continue to contribute, instead of being the solution we continue to be the problem. We pass this on to the next generation and this is what we teach them by ignoring that garbage. The cycle just continues and it has come to the point that all the garbage is now an afterthought. So much garbage, that it has now blended itself into the beautiful scenery, into the paradise that we have forgotten that our world is and truly could be.
Here is a video made by a group called sea shepherd from Uruguay. This video depicts what I have been protesting for in various beaches where I currently reside in the island of Puerto Rico. People leaving the beach often see me with my sign and tell me that they cleaned up “their” garbage, but that other garbage around them is not theirs. In which I remind them that the garbage is everyone’s responsibility, no matter if it is not yours. I tell them that the garbage you leave behind is the inheritance you leave for your children. Not only what they leave for their children, but the other species that inhabit this world that also call this home, as we go on thinking that we are the only species. I have a similar protest where I put a garbage bag over my head which can be seen by clicking here.
But first enjoy this video by that group and
Please share this post so that together we can all raise awareness since the world seems to be sleeping through all this garbage.. Let’s make our world a paradise. peace!
