1000 Flowers for the Planet - #312 Clean Up Land 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. It’s time to realise that when we throw something ‘away’ it doesn’t simply vanish into thin air. It doesn’t disappear. ‘Away’ is an actual place, in fact thousands of places around the world called ‘landfill’. Search the Internet for images of landfill and see how repulsive they are. Everywhere you look you can see waste – it’s the rubbish in the streets, plastic bags stuck up in trees, paper blowing around the streets, rubbish dumped in public garden spaces or on roadsides. See what waste looks like in real life, then decide it’s time to do something about it.
Participate in cleanup days – We have ‘Clean Up Australia Day’ in my country, so you check out what’s in your country. Keep your own neighbourhood tidy – if you see rubbish on the ground, pick it up and prevent it from going into waterways. Be aware of what is happening in your vicinity – is their any local industry that is creating massive waste and not dealing with it appropriately? Create an action group that encourages industry to be responsible. Find ways to reduce your own waste/rubbish/trash (whatever you call it) and be proactive in cleaning up after yourself and encouraging others to do the same.
On a larger scale, we need to do something about the landfill we’ve already created. Perhaps instead of spending money working out how to put people on Mars we should concentrate our scientific knowledge on cleaning up our own back yard – this planet we call Earth, which is already our home. We need to find ways of reusing that which we have tossed away as useless, and make it useful. Maybe it could be used to generate energy, or maybe more of it can be recycled if we put our minds to it (and our wallets). Once we concentrate our efforts, I’m sure we’ll find good answers to our problems.
if you ever feel like spiders are fearless, unstoppable death machines that are bent upon your destruction please remember that my tarantula has been sitting, inconsolable, with her knees tucked around her face, for the past 20 minutes solely because she stepped on her own foot
she literally scared herself with her own fucking foot like what do i even do about that
Bawww. Poor liddle thing.
1000 Flowers for the Planet - #115 Participate in Clean Up Australia Day
Clean Up Australia Day is on 2 March 2014. You have time to register and participate in this wonderful project, which began in 1989 when one Aussie bloke came up with the idea of cleaning up Sydney Harbour. The event was so incredibly successful that Clean Up Australia Day began the following year and then in 1993 Clean Up The World was born. You can read more about the origins of this fantastic event and all the statistical information regarding tonnage of waste collected and the type of waste thrown carelessly into the environment and waterways by reading www.cleanupaustraliaday.org.au and if you don’t live in Australia then check out http://www.cleanuptheworld.org/en/www.cleanupaustraliaday.org.au and if you don’t live in Australia then check out http://www.cleanuptheworld.org/en/ and participate in that special weekend from 19-21 September 2014. 40 million people from 130 countries participate in this environmental project – will you be one of them?
Join the growing number of people who demonstrate in a practical way that they care about their planet and are willing to give time and effort to do the right thing. Care for your planet.
this is the best thing in the entire world
she should greet jane as if nothing happened and see how jane reacts
she should avoid school the next day. And the next. Every night, she should put on the exact outfit she had on that day, hose herself down until she’s completely drenched and stand in Jane’s yard. When Jane is home alone, she should approach the window, staring at her. Knock on it if you don’t have her attention.
That’ll get her back for killing you and trying to hide the evidence.
Ease up there, Satan.
