Observing Earth Day 2019

Earth Day is coming up, and through the next two weeks more than a billion people in 192 countries will observe this special day. We observe it by planting a tree, teaching younger generations about recycling and conservation. We are encouraged to go for a walk, observe nature. And then what? Although some commit their lives to environmental causes, almost all of those 1 billion people celebrating Earth Day, go back to their usual routines and habits the very next day. It makes Earth Day more like a come-and-go Hallmark holiday, instead of the catalyst for us to stand up and realize some things about ourselves as a society and actually make changes that stick.

“The PLASTIC Age”

I can never see a future without plastic, we have become too dependent on it, however unless we do something about it, it won't be AI overtaking the earth in the next 50 years, it will be plastic taking over the earth.
