I've registered for Blog Action Day some weeks ago and I was supposed to be writing something on the environment for tomorrow, the 15th of October. It's not that I'm giving an excuse, but I'm really out of inspiration right now and I feel that to solve environmental issues words are not really much of a help and we rather need some action.
It's really easy to be sitting in front of your PC and then finding some images and information on Google and bang! You got a post ready! People will read it and say wow! And what about when you get out? Did the situation change? Did people stop cutting down forests or littering on beaches? Did the ozone layer mend itself by magic all because of these words?
Yeah it didn't and it won't! What we actually need is education; educating the mass about pollution can be a better way to prevent it. Most Mauritians who have access to the net already know about the implications of pollution. By blogging about it, considerable changes cannot be brought. It's not that I don't give a damn about the rest of the world but each of us has a responsibility towards our immediate environment and by making it a better place to in we will contribute to making the country a better place to live in and this will extend to the whole planet. Yeah I know this sounds utopic. But at least it's worth a try!
So don't forget to go out and try to educate the people around you and try to embellish and protect your environment from pollution! Think GREEN!
