Project Description: "Our project is about Health and Environmental Awareness specifically about the problem on garbage disposal. Garbage disposal is how the citizens of the community dispose their garbage, especially on plastics. Plastics as we all know do not easily decompose by themselves. Disposing plastics properly is considered as one of our modern day problem around the world. People have no care for their own environment, because they are not still aware of the things that are happening today.
Instead of dumping their waste into their respective dumping places, like garbage cans and garbage pits, almost all of the people dump them anywhere which causes troubles, damages and problems, primarily floods which cause a great misery to the people who would be affected.
Despite all these things, they wouldn't still make a necessary action until they will experience a disastrous accident or happening that would destroy their homes, living(rice fields) and at most their lives that was caused by their own very wrong doings. And dumping garbage, specifically plastics, anywhere, like riverbanks and canals that are being clogged had been a habit to us people. These problems in our society are affected by our government officials and businessmen worldwide. Our government officials are doing something to solve this problem but unfortunately, it is not enough and it requires a lot of effort, time and specially the cooperation of the members of the community.
Our goal is to spread the information about the other ways of disposing plastics that may help lessen the problem on plastics. We also want that those people who would view our website would be awakened from their thinking that the world they are living in now is not like the world they were living in a few decades ago where in the world has still no environmental problems compared to our world today that has a lot of environmental problems.
