At present most people are into saving our planet or Mother Earth. They always make it to a point that they’ll always have an activity commemorating the day that they have extended their hands in saving the planet. But that’s not the main reason for everything, what Mother Earth needs are not pictures with poses of planting trees, not a written manifest on broad sheets or ads, or a good proposals for the environment but what she need is a little act. A little act of doing something not for the sake of points at school or an addition to a long list of curriculum vitae but an act of saving ourselves first. Saving ourselves doesn’t mean that we forget about others and matter only ourselves! What is ought to be address is the process of saving ourselves from various negative and bad attitude or perception in life that we have.
Most companies and producers today are going environment friendly. This is the right thing to do because most of what we are using today are destroying our world little by little. Nobody knows how long will Mother Earth live but one thing is for sure she is the only planet that we can live in. Though there are researches and studies being taken, still we’ve got a long… long… long way to go before a new discovery. We might be floating in space by that time.
The only thing that can really save this planet are us we have the resources and knowledge to do everything but if we’re not eager enough to do things differently then we might as well face the fact that we’re into doomsday. So if we really intend to help let us start by doing simple things. Mother Earth needs us to save ourselves from the bad norms of the society and peers. Yes it’s hard because we have already inherited that bad norms but there’s still a way to change it and that’s what the SAVE ME Movement or Students, Action, Vital to the Environment and Mother Earth Movement is all about. The organization’s core foundation is daring to be different. We cannot save someone or something if we cannot save ourselves. We cannot clean Mother Earth if we haven’t clean ourselves. If we change our bad norms and discipline ourselves we can surely save Mother Earth.
A little act means a lot! A simple throwing of candy wrappers in garbage cans or trash bins will surely not only lessen the trash on the street but will also help stop floods and other tragedies. Another example is when you eat in a restaurant or fast food chains, what does socialites do? Well of course, they always have left over. Call me hungry beggar (patay-gutom) but hey it’s a grace from GOD and there are a lot of people dying in hunger, so why do you have to have left over on your plate when you can simply finish it all. I’d rather be a simple man than a socialite if that’s the case. One more is the use of motorbikes. This bikes are becoming so popular because it is cheap, easy to handle and can course through heavy traffic, and it’s “in”. Yes it’s good but the idea of burning gas and emitting carbon dioxide in the air for just riding a block away from your destination is something not good for Mother Earth. You can walk instead! You can get to your destination and at the same time you had your exercise which will surely extend your life span if you make it as a routine. All of this is just examples of norms that we usually do and we take it for granted. Let us save Mother Earth by saving ourselves first. Every plan and course of action will flow smoothly and successfully if we just start it in ourselves.
Think about yourself and start acting differently but accordingly in saving the planet!
