Remembering the Next Generation

Remember the slogan, “Milk is Good Food?” It made everyone more mindful of the benefits of drinking milk. I was thinking about how we can encourage the world to reduce trash by reusing it. I read that in our country alone, each person throws out about 5 pounds of trash each day. We are contributing to the destruction of our planet. As the population grows ever so rapidly, we are expediting the negative effects of pollution on our planet and its future generations. Let’s turn it around!

“Use It Again!” “Did You Use It Thrice?” Hey, we can teach a forgotten word while reducing waste. That’s a Win-Win!” We can teach the next generation to be better than the previous two generations. “How many years are in a generation,” you ask? It is debatable. It is generally believed that “a generation” is between 20 and 30 years; adults have children and then those children become the next generation. Perfect! We are learning and saving our planet.

Want to make it simple? Those of us on Earth who are fortunate enough to breathe by any means necessary, have an obligation to those who will inherit our magnificent planet one day. It is an all too frequently lost act or feeling to return something in the same or better condition as we received it.

Let us seriously consider how many people just throw away their desktops, laptops, printers, and other devices without considering how these discards can change a child’s life. What we take for granted can literally change the course of a child’s life. The next time you or someone you know is trashing the old for the new or is simply upgrading, remember what a difference a computer or printer can make in the life of a child.
