Be Positive! Act Now and Save the Environment!


The activist is not the man who says the river is dirty; the activist is the man who cleans up the river ~ Ross Perot

Yes! It is not enough to dream of making the world a better place; what is more important than the dream itself is trying to make it come true. It is important to be aware that no matter how trivial our actions may seem to be, they could tremendously affect our environment.

It is important to shed light on current environmental crisis, as well as our daily behavior; especially our negative habits, and try to figure out how to change these habits to become more positive and less harmful to the environment. It is also important to empower people to become active agents of sustainable development, as well as helping change their negative attitudes towards the environment.

A wise man once said: "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children" so, we always have to think of the next generation; of our children and their future.

Think Big… Act now! Reduce energy consumption, reuse some materials, and recycle to save money and keep the earth clean. So, go for it! Protect our planet today and every day!
