How covid-19 has led to a new epidemic in the form of plastic waste.
With several countries imposing complete or partial lockdown,you must have heard about how Covid-19 has brought positive changes in the Pollution graphs.
There are talks about the healing Earth fresh clean air with improved Air Quality Index,clear blue sky, clean swimming pools. Even the Ozone hole over the Arctic is repairing.
But the flip side of the coin tells a different story altogether. Covid-19 is emerging as the escalator of a long battled problem i.e; Plastic Pollution.
Surge in the use of disposable plastic masks, hand gloves, PPE,sanitizers,plastic bags,etc. have piled up the garbages everywhere.
Most concerning matter is the ‘Reentry of the Single use plastics’ as it has become a regular feture of the “New Normal”.
EFFECT ON MARINE ECOSYSTEM:
Worst effected are the water bodies like rivers and oceans where all the wastes are being discharged.
Marine animals are dying by swallowing the litters or by the polluted waters and in future the adverse impact will be seen more.
According to a Survey conducted by United Nations Environment Programme and FIA in the South East Asia;Plastic pollution is choking the waters of South-East Asia.The survey was conducted in the Top 5 sources of Plastic marine debris globally which included- Indonesia, Malaysia, Phillipines, Thailand, Vietnam.
INDIA and the Plastic Problem:
India is among the top hit countries by Corona virus. The nationwide lockdown however brought down the air pollution with closed industries and transportation, but the sharp rise in plastic waste is evidently seen here too.
Are we Recycling enough?
India generates nearly 9.5 million tonnes of waste every year of which only 56% goes through recycling.
Moreover, no its not only us but most of the countries facing this challenge has failed to do enough recycling.
Posing greater risk to Sanitation workers: One important aspect of increased single use plastic waste is that people using it are feeling more safe and hygenic during this covid-19 pandemic. But we are forgetting the safety of the most important line of workers- the sanitation workers. They were the most vulnerable groups earlier and now too.People are handing over these wastes to sanitation workers posing them with great threat. Most of them handle these wastes without having proper safety gears.
The most important thing is to accept the problem that the world is battling with plastic pollution then only the solution will be measured out. Covid 19 is less responsible than he lack of recycling and mangaement.
Learning from Japan: Japan is recycling its 80 percent of the solid waste.
We need both administrative management and behavioural change to fight both Covid-19 and the Plastic pollution.
Segregate the waste at home and do not litter everywhere.
Try to use reusable bags and masks if you are not exposed to high risk zones like hospitals.
Provide sanitation workers safety gears and also make them aware about the preventive measures.
Governments should try to set up more recycling machines for wastes.
Ensuring proper waste disposal facilities.
At last i would conclude by saying Stay happy and Safe and don’t forget to protect the Planet because we are just small part of this greater system.
What you think of yourself is much more important than what others think of you.
Loving others is easy. Loving you is hard.We can be our own worst critics. Its hard sometimes to look in mirror and see good in yourself. In order to achieve greatness know that you are considering your life. Its impossible to try and achieve your goals if you continue to do what your society says. Making a list of things you like about yourself and the one’s you don’t. Begin to invoice the things you don’t love.Don’t ever try to find validation in others, try to find in yourself.
When loving yourself your fear of influence may change. People in your circle will voluntarily contribute to your demands. Get rid of people who are cluttering your life with uncertainty, besides give space to people who are useful, caring and contribute to your well being. You only need people around you who help you grow. Sometimes you have to cut people out of life not because you don’t love them but because loving them stops you from loving you. Let it go. Those people who have hurt you have already moved on while you are still clutched with it.
Yes because what they did was painful and you have every right to be upset. The pain is not stopping them,they are only stopping you. Thet person is not worth having you nor are they worth of your losing your piece of mind.
Let it go! GROW.
Learn to love yourself first. Instead of loving the idea of other people loving you
– John Spence
The choice is yours. Whether you want to try and continue upto societal standards or you love yourself so much that you don’t care about people who don’t know your worth. Love yourself as much as you want to be loved.
We pay so much attention to people in our lives, our family, friends, colleagues. We think our life is completely dependent on them. But no, your life is completely dependent on you, you take yourself where you want to go. The most important thing in life to work on is YOU.
The main launching room of the research centre was all prepared.Everyone’s eyes in the room was glued to the computer screens. Every parts and details of the rocket was minutely examined and absolutely ready for the day. All looked perfect and ok.
His shoulder was heavy with responsibilties, not beause of his fear to lose but because of the hopes his countrymen had with him and this programme. He was the Project head so he had to do it, and he pressed the OK button to launch the rocket.
Suddenly the main computer system beeped and it alarmed that the rocket may collapse after completing its third stage. But he was confident that everything is ok its just the fault of computer system. His whole experience and the gut feeling was saying all is well with the rocket system. The sign of nervousness can be figured out on his head, but,he finally pressed the OK button and launched it.
To everbody’s shock, the launch failed and the rocket collapsed after its third stage. All hopes broke down and the whole country was in a disappointing state. Media persons were ready to throw questions on the team. Here came the team leader,the director of the programme.He stopped the Project head scientist from attending Press conference and came forward to take all the respinsibilities of the failure. He attended the conference and anwered all the question very bravely fired at him. He replied it was under his supervision that the launch failed and so he is ready to take all the responsibilities.
Next year again the programme was to be done and the launch was to take place. The respected scientist again took the charge,this time he cannot let down the hopes of people,he promised to himself. And the rocket was successfully fired. The programme was a big successful and it was a glorious moment for the entire country. It was a proud and historic moment for him and his countrymen in the entire world.
On this grand day-the leader of the programme i.e; the director, send the Project head scientist for attending the press conference. He had tears in his eyes after seeing the responsibiltiy and sacrifice of his leader.
Happy to see this flowing beauty of river sitting beside. If it was tamed i doubt i would have captured it this way; flowing carefree, cutting rocks making gorges, leaping over mountains. The Daily post Tame
People come and people go, a person without having any dream has no goals no plans in his life. No dreams-no struggle-no success. Its just like existing on earth, eating-sleeping.
Believe in yourself , you have miles to go, you cannot just change your destiny but others too. Dream big and dare to fail. Even if you dared to dream something that means you are different from others and may be above them who failed to even dream.
Like attracts like. If we think good there is always positive vibes surrounding us.
If we always think negative things, there is pain agony revenge like negative energy around us making our days gloomy, making us a person that we are not and that we don’t wish.
The day you start dreaming of great things, it start attracting to yourself. It may take less time for few and more time for others to get there. Imagine yourself to be the person of your dreams and surely you will be at that place after sometime.When you will start living your dreams it will come to you walking.
Having patienc while waiting is indeed an art, an art for a happy and succesful life, an art to achieve your dreams. But just dreaming over and thinking and imagining will not work unless you start it by your action. To achieve your dreams you will have to work hard and here we have no shorcuts.
And i cannot just stop myself from writing my favourite quote:
