I like everything about this article EXCEPT for the law part. Making laws to make people save their own environment? How is that going to work? We don’t need any more laws. We need education. My parents and grandparents taught me the value of conservation and preservation – education outside the classroom. We must hold ourselves to account for our actions towards the environment and other living creatures. We can’t leave something as precious as our planet to EU law or other governmental directive. If you think the environment is important, take care of it! Help others learn by example. Buy things built to last. Quality not quantity. Use things as many times as they can be used and then recycle them. If companies or individuals abuse the environment – don’t support them. Know what you’re buying. Know what they’re doing. Simple. If YOU think something is important, YOU do something about it.
