Waste is not something dirty, worthless, or offensive. Waste and good only differ from human needs.
Have you ever? when you go to the mall and then find something that you like. That you are ready to take out your wallet to pay and swipe your card to redeem it.
Then one day, you find it deep on the shelf, pick it up to look, and throw it in the trash!
The difference between good stuff and waste is only a fraction of our minds. The thinking is that the word
"It is useless.”
By the nature of our humans who always want something new. Useless things are more and happen faster.
And is it really useless?
We must first understand that the world is made up of elements that have existed since the universe formed.
But only a few thousand years, ago a creature called Humans knew how to use alchemy in the world to become new things.
When those things are useless, the minerals contained in them are not lost with demand.
It's just been transformed into a form that we have never known. Just like before when it was still a mineral.
Plastic was made from oil or natural gas, which is under the earth.
Paper was made from wood pulp, which absorbs minerals from the soil.
Metal was forged from rocks.
The glass was made from the sand on the earth's surface.
That's the reason is Why must be recycled.
Recycling is not a solution because waste is not a problem.
Recycling is just a process to reuse minerals one more time.
But recycling waste has not been paid as much attention as it should be.
Because human beings still think that the Earth's resources are in abundance to use forever.
But really, some resources are depleted within our lifetimes.
Is it time yet that humans to start looking at trash as a valuable commodity that needs attention?
Because actually there is no garbage in the world. It was just an unmanaged mineral resource.
