From chapter 5, I have learned how disposal works around the world. When Germany  adopted a packaging ordinance that is a ” Foundation of which is the belief that the companies that design, produce, use and profit from packaging should be held financially responsible for it.” Also it requires ” Companies to pay according to both the volume and type of packaging, but also to use safer materials.”

Consumers are to blame

I really blame the consumers because they are the ones that control what they buy. Nobody is telling hem to buy products with toxins in them. They have their own choices. The product companies just sell things, so you can’t just blame a company for selling products. Product companies sell things that we think people will buy.

The story of stuff

The one thing that I found shocking is that a lit of toxins are all around us and already in us. It is impossible to get rid of pvc since it is everywhere. Nobody has any control of it. To me, its important to know because it shows us what kind of world we are living in. We think everything is good, but in reality its not.

Water should be a right

I believe water should be a right because people should have the rights to water. People should be able to get water for free. We get free water from water fountains wen we go to places. Not everybody has the money to always buy water or anything to drink. Having water rights will make people happy because really, you only need water to survive besides food.

My favorite Product

My favorite product that I like to buy is clothes. I love to go shopping. I always need new clothes. Some of my clothes is made from Taiwan. Im not sure where else my clothes is made from to be honest. I barely look at where things is made from. Im a type of person that just buys things. I barely look at the price and where it is from. Only sometimes I look at the price depending if I know I am broke or not lol

All About Me

I am from here in Hawaii.  I am currently living in mililani. Ive been living here my whole life. I guess mililani is known for trojans since thats out mascot. A lot of stereotypes in mililani is that people think only rich people lives here which is not true. Mililani is cut in half where part of mauka is where the rich people live and then the bottom half is where the decent people live. meaning they are not poor or rich. My parents taught me to always work for what you want or need because I need to learn how to be independent since a lot of kids in mililani, they get EVERYTHING from their parents.

My Name

My name is Chanel. I once asked my mom why did she name me chanel? She told me its because my grandma’s favorite perfume was chanel #5. Thats why everybody would call me that.  When you google my name, it shows that is a French name but most of the time it just comes up as channel. If I was to give myself a name it would be Yoko because it sounds like a cute Japanese name.
