1000 Flowers for the Planet - #306 LOOK at What's Going on Around You

1000 Flowers for the Planet - #306 LOOK at What's Going on Around You


Look! Notice the planet. See what is happening around you, be aware of what is going on, notice what needs to be changed and seek ways to do things differently.
Take a look at what is happening in your own small world. Do you pay attention to how much rubbish/trash you are throwing away? Do you think about your purchases and where they will end up – do you see them as permanent or landfill? Take a look at what’s happening in your community. Do you like what you see? Is there something that needs your action? Take a look at your country and how it is dealing with political, social, environmental, moral and ethical issues. Do you agree? Are there any actions you should be taking?
Take a look at the planet. What do you see? Is it in good shape? How are you contributing to the health of the planet? Are you mindlessly polluting it or mindfully helping to clean it up? You won’t know the answers to these questions unless you first LOOK – then you might comprehend better.

Look around your neighbourhood and notice how many shopping trolleys/carts are abandoned. Some shops have a toll-free number or website to report "lost" trolleys so they can go and pick them up. Some even have a monthly cash or store credit reward.
Look at how much nicer our streets, footpaths, parks and waterways would appear then!
