Banning plastic bags are yes to me
I woke up this morning with such ease since I slept for more than 11 hours last night. I tried to stay away from my phone because my head is already spinning like a crazy ball. I was coding all-day yesterday, that was why. The rain didn't stop this evening until I woke up. What a gloomy, cold day it is. Since it's Thursday, I have only one class to attend and I'll continue my code learning.
The Philippines is blessed with abundance of natural beauty starting with bodies of water until the beautiful landscapes of each region. It is not surprising when we know that we are visited with plenty of foreigners abroad. However, tourism is not always good for the environment. The best example is the undying paradise of Boracay Beach. We have heard that it was severely polluted and damaged due to economical and environmental problems.
The rehabilitation lasted for about a year and when it was opened to the public. We have seen how much it improved and how strict they were today. Tourism is a vital part of our economy and tourism affects the environment with different aspects. I believe that the more we show care and love towards the environment, then it will have a good response and blessing for us. Some effects left a tremendous impact and will take time to recover. I think we don't have to wait for that to happen since we cannot bear the consequences.
Vegetables and fruits are undoubtedly the healthiest food we could ever eat. They are festive with a bountiful of colors, types, shapes, and textures. Thus, eating vegetables and fruits are highly recommended by the dietician and nutritionist. On the other hand, not everyone is fond of eating vegetables. They despise eating it and settle with meat, beef, poultry and sea foods. Who would like to eat vegetables each day if we could taste them all?
I don't think it's appropriate to say and implement that we have all to be vegetarian because it will cause a huge commotion to everyone. I believe that we have to respect each other's choice or preference to whatever kind of food he or she likes to eat. Being vegetarian is a commitment and a long term commitment. Temptation will always be there, waving and enticing our weak minds. Thus, the demands of vegetables and fruits will rise and I believe that we're not capable yet of producing and sustaining all the needs of humankind.
Ultimately, we can see the goodness and effectiveness of using plastic bags since it is more efficient and stronger than paper bags. However, the exchange of its effectiveness is the high risk of pollution and the thousand of years before it ceases to exist in this world. The awareness of how it will be reused is a good thing, but the pollution it creates due to our lack of discipline is made this way. It's a sad reality that we see pollution everywhere. From the sky above to the ground until the bodies of water.
I would definitely say yes to ban the plastic bags and packaging since we have plenty of alternatives nowadays. There are eco-friendly bags and paper bags that will be good for the environment. Thus, the risk of pollution is lower since the eco-friendly ones are easily dissolved in the water. Though, I'm not sure how to encourage us to throw the papers anywhere, but I mean it's better than plastic. Just be responsible enough on how to take care of this lovely world.
