A Planet Worth Saving


In your opinion, how are we affecting our planet?

We are doing our planet harm, but don’t seem to be doing anything to stop it. We understand what is damaging the planet, but still use plastic bags. I don’t get why we make them anymore. If there was a lower tax bracket for those who helped the planet, then there would be more drive to do that. Recycling more, re-using plastic in a way we used to with glass bottles. If There were a centre you could take old plastic bottles then they could be washed and re-used.
What solutions would you offer to stem the multiple problems we face vis a vis the destruction of our planet home? I think we need to think about how we recycle. Not just putting it in different coloured bins and forgetting about it. Think about what is made of plastic and how we can reuse what we have made.
Do you think it’s already too late and we could just do exactly as we’re doing now and things would turn out the very same? No, I think we can change things, but we all need to work together.
Do you participate in things like “Arbor Day” (a U.S. Holiday dedicated to planting new trees) or Earth Day or Earth Month? No.
Is any of it important in the ‘Big Picture’?


What can you personally do to participate in the “Clean Earth” movement?

I can recycle more confidently, work together with other people to think of ways to be more proactive with what I’m doing for the planet. I want to make sure my granddaughter has a home when she is my age.

  1. Thanks Diana for Sharing Your World! You have a wonderful attitude towards this problem and have offered good ideas for what can be done if we only unite and do it. It’s hard to get the idea across in areas where leaders aren’t concerned, but I still have a tiny bit of faith in the voice of the people. Thanks for sharing! Have a great week!

  2. It’s maddening, isn’t it? We know but it doesn’t seem to matter. We recycle here, but I wonder how much of it gets reused. China used to by a lot of our paper goods, but a few years ago stopped buying it, so a lot it sits in bales waiting for buyers. There aren’t nearly enough plants that actually USE recycled material. Very few in this state and not many nearby. We are also running out of room for trash. Our last remaining landfill is closing this year, so it will go to a few landfills in upstate New York. When they fill up, Ohio? Who knows?
