Be a trendsetter, go green

2015-05-13 06:00

I HAVE often seen litter being thrown out of moving vehicles. It is a eyesore and is also dangerous to motorists travelling behind.

Parents and adults, it’s your responsibility to teach children not to throw empty packets and bottles out of the car. It is your duty to carry a bag for rubbish. Litter is unsafe for people and animals. This is our country, our land and home. Who do we expect to clean it up?

We need to play our part to make this a pleasant place in which to live so we can walk on the streets or swim in the sea with peace of mind, take in the beauty of our natural surroundings and appreciate our God-given Earth. It is a blessing we need to maintain for future generations.

We must plant seeds of wisdom to take care of our planet, to ensure the safety of our community and the well-being and health of our nation if we plan to live long healthy lives protected from harmful substances.

We can make a difference in our world when we join hands in celebration of the life we have, choosing a lifestyle of cleanliness and a commitment to shine through mirrors of the environment. Be a trendsetter, go green.
