The best solution is giving all the trash to H-Power. H-Power actually does things to the trash instead of doing nothing with it. The field trip to H-Power was a little interesting because you got to see what they do to the rubbish.
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.”
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 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.
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.
I believe the water from waiahole should still be diverted to Ewa because the Ewa side needs water. Ewa is too dry and they also need water to survive. The people and the land need water. We are an island, and we should be able to share anything to help one another.
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
