Why do we have a trash problem in Hawaii? People don’t recycle and that’s what the environment turns out bad to community. The three solutions are green waste composting, reusing items, and shipping away the waste. Those solutions would be good for Hawaii which helps keep the environment cleaned help consumers find a way to deal with the problems in the area.
Environmental racism is a hazardous or degraded environment such as toxic waste in Hawaii. An example bullying and fighting in communits, disrespecting the other nationality.
One thing I’ve Learned in Chapter 5 “Disposal” is that even though people may or not recycle, It’s our responsbity to recycle the right way. According to Annie Leonard, ” the offical term for the ” you make it, you deal with it ” apporach-of which I am huge fan is ” extended producer responsiblity” (pg 233). The quote is important because the product are produce and when the consumers buy its their decision to recycling to keep the environment cleans.
Did you know are trash goes to the land fills which we have three different trash bins blue is for mixed recycles, green is for wasted such as grass, hedge and shrub cuttings leaves and etc. and gray is trashes. After recycle the H-power collect the wasted. I Did know that the trashes goes because my family and I go to the recycle place where the things we don’t need it and take it to the dump where they have each sections whats meant to throw for. My opinion about this disposal people should care to recycle, if they didn’t care what would happen to the environment.
Although what we buy at the store goes to the economy. We are still continuing to buy whatever we like at a store, Like Mac book, clothes, jewelry, household needs and etc. Buying those things keeps us happy there are points I didn’t need to buy, but we just needed for our lives.
Now that it comes up to Midterm semester, Ive learned a lot of things. Ms Chang gave us homework that is easy some are challenge for but Ive felt improving more than I was last semester because she gave worksheets to understand the steps to organize my essay (outline, understanding the reading ,quotes, summarizing, MLA citation and the format of the essay paper. which she makes it clear where most of the students understand it. Although taking English 24 class again, Ive been making sure my practice critical thinking and essay writing would be better because it takes to process to understanding.
Did you know there is toxins in our products well, toxins in the chemicals are bad, but consumers are still wanting to buy the products because people doesn’t know whats in it, it was their decision to buy the item or not and the government lets our factories produce the items to the consumers and it was them their decision to let the workers to do it. so I would say consumers are the blame because us needs to know we’re not control making toxin chemicals in our product so either they can buy hit or not simple as it can be.
Based on reading “In the Story o Stuff” chapter 2, By Annie Lenorad she mentions about into the mouths of babies because their is toxins in the breast milk, which their a bad affect base on breastfeeding to the babies. For example, breastfeeding provides nutrients, minerals antibodies, and a powerful emotional attachment, which helps women when they’re pregnancy, and it lowers the rate of the ovarian and breast cancer. This topic was shocking to me because I never knew that when women breastfeeding to their child. The type of toxic that produce can lead to the babies when babies are born.
Do you think water is right or good? Well I think water is a right to be because we need water for our lives how are we going to survive the needs for our environment around the world. Most of the world doesn’t have clean water, and they used water because they have to look for water and patiently wait till the water at an area they need to get. Like for example the movie “flow” where they need to wait till the water comes out from a fossil but sometimes they said it doesn’t comes to give the water to them. This showed a reason to be good because people suffer to find water to the economy.
Waianole water should not continue to be diverted to Ewa because Waianole needs water too. Well, actually they both need water because they need the lands/ food , Hawaiian culture, and the environment, etc. If they never had water there will be an affects to their environments.
