Wake up peoples!
Wake up peoples!
I am so tired.
And my coffee sucks ass because we ran out of milk when it was my turn to get the coffee. THIS IS MY LIFE.
I have decided that I want to do some sort of weekly thing with you guys since sometimes I feel like I ramble about my somewhat boring life a lot and I want a weekly trend piece. So I wanted to try it out and see if it works and if my blogger buddies like the idea. Otherwise I will think of something else.
I am going to start a discussion, ask a question, name a topic, and then talk about what I think about it, and then you talk about what you think about it. :) It's my interactive Thursday thing!
Topic this week:
Going Green -- is this a legitimate help to the Earth? Or is this just a bs marketing campaign?
Don't get me wrong, I am a true believer in make the Earth a cleaner, healthier place to live for everyone. I don't litter, I try not to waste as much as possible. I try to do as much that I can... recycle, etc. But I am not going crazy.
I don't use as many plastic bags as i used to. I believe that polluting and littering is not good. But i think the whole "go green" movement is really to scare the public into buying these products that are "safer" and "healthier" and "environmentally OK".
I am not against the whole idea, I just think that the media really doesnt NEED to use scare tactics to get the point across.
We should WANT to have a cleaner earth, cleaner air, save the trees, save the animals, don't litter blah blah.
I also think there are more important things that people should be focusing on and I wish that media could use scare tactics to get people to invest in the people that live on the Earth --like starving children, or homeless veterans, abused women in foreign countries, and people devastated by natural disasters. I believe that is more important to invest in people. But that is only my opinion.
I don't do as much as I could, one day I am hoping to go teach English in another country and bring whatever I can to them, clothes, food etc. I am always donating bags and bags of clothes to good will.
Think go green was an idea that the media blew out of proportion. Like they always do. And it worked. Fine. I understand that; but I think that there are other things that need to be focused on a little bit more.
Opinions! Comments! Answers! Good topic? Bad?
