Community Waste Management
Today, being human means producing vast amounts of waste; items that are not currently being put to use, whether it be the intended or creative use of the item. There are categories of waste, some more prevalent than others, some more harmful than others. Some examples of common waste include plastic, Styrofoam, pet feces, abandoned structures, uncared for compost, and many other material items; all of which can and do negatively contribute to overall environmental health. Analyzing the amounts and kinds of waste that humans produce is crucial to the survival of the Earth and all earthlings (living beings; plants, animals, bugs/insects). These destructive impacts cause many social, mental and physical health, environmental, and faith related struggles around the world; an action in Pittsburg, KS will impact other locals, the United States, other lands, and all the water. The good news is that while there are many details of this problem, there are also various mitigating factors; activists around the world are spreading awareness and providing opportunities for others to become involved in any of the above issues, or all of them, as they are all connected. With conscious behavioral changes of humans, the problems that present themselves today will continue progress in positive directions that benefit the overall environment for all earthlings.
