1000 Flowers for the Planet - #311 Clean Up Water Waste
This planet of ours has ‘land’ and it has ‘water’ and we’ve managed to pollute both extremely well. It’s time to reverse our damaging ways and begin the massive cleanup. The water systems give us life. Without our fresh water we do not exist. It is counter-productive to pollute the water systems – in fact it’s dumb. We put all kinds of objects, waste, chemicals, plastic, drugs, dead bodies, poisons and human faeces into our water. How much dumber can we get?
It’s time to start cleaning up our water. The first action to take is to STOP putting stuff into it in the first instance. Our next major action is to physically do something positive about cleaning up the damage that has been done. Do an image search on the Internet for ‘water pollution’ and you’ll find enough inspiration to get you going. Check out your local creeks, lakes, bay, or stretch of beach and see what condition it is in. If you can, get in there (taking all necessary safety precautions) and pull out any hard rubbish polluting the water. Take action against local businesses that may be polluting your water with industrial waste and chemicals. Question whether or not you would drink the water in your area straight from the source. If not, then do something about cleaning it up. Create a local action group to gather support. Do whatever you can to clean up the waste in our water and help the planet provide us with the basis of life.
