I’m wondering why we, people, try to get rid quickly of the waste? When we eat a chocolate bar and we must throw the package, we are looking for a waste container, but we don’t find it everywhere and then we “bump” the package randomly…at that moment, we should think that we take part in a serious process of environmental degradation and also, maybe hundreds or thousands of people do the same thing at the same moment. In this way, we unleash a major pollution and inevitable consequences on humans and animals.
But why not considering the package something potentially useful? Because we paid it together with the chocolate bar (about the package’s costs I will talk in the following articles)! We can lead it home to collect it selectively. Selective collection must begin from here!
But what does “selective collective” mean? Selective collection means, in the first phase, the waste collection in separate containers, specially arranged and burnt in various categories, followed by their recycle. Thus, PAPER and CARDBOARD waste must be stored in BLUE containers, PLASTIC and METAL waste must be stored in YELLOW containers and GLASS waste must be stored in GREEN container, to be then transported to recycling centers where they are easily and effectively harnessed.
The advantage of used recycled materials is the reduction of the consumption and the conservation of natural resources, and also on the level of harmful emissions into the air, so of the pollution, and also the decrease of the amount of waste.
Our negligence regarding waste lead to serious consequences, such as the transformation of areas of infection outbreaks, air, water and soil pollution, but also the destruction of the natural environment that leads to the disappearance of certain species of plants and animals.
With a selective collection and recycling, we will succeed in keeping a cleaner environment for us and for the future generations.
