This is a site which contains about the care for our environment because we want to persuade people to save Mother Earth. If you have noticed, our environment is in a sickly state because of all the pollutions we have caused. We made this site not only because this is our integrated project but because we are encouraging you to unite with us as we once again build a clean and green environment. Join us as we help save Mother Earth. :)
Start for a Change

God gave us the gift of a wonderful nature
We hear birds chirping and dogs barking
Isn’t it heavenly hearing these things?
Whoosh says the wind,
Splash goes the water,
What a very good place to live in!

But do you realize what are we doing to nature?
Ouch! Says Mother Earth
Do you hear her crying out loud?
We are destroying her!
STOMP! Children stepping on grass,
Making Earth looks horrible
We shall reshape her again
Let’s not waste time before it’s too late!

Using the 5Rs

Recycling is one of the least we can do to help save our environment. It involves processing used or waste materials so that it can be used again. In simpler words, you can make something from your own trash instead of contributing to our rapid increasing number of trash. A lot of materials can be recycled, such as, paper, plastic, metal, and glass. These materials can be turned into something very useful without even needing a lot of materials to make new things. A lot of people nowadays recycle their tetra packs or other food packagings to make bags, ornaments and accessories which are being exported to different parts of the world. For a lot of people, trash can also be beneficial for them to live because through trash, they earn money. It’s not hard to recycle, so everyone should make this a habit to make our world a better place to live in.

Another way to help save the environment is to reuse. That is why we should always remember to reuse things. We can do this so we can avoid buying the same thing that we already have which could be used again. For example, we can reuse plastic bags after using it. By doing this, we are lessening the plastics that are produced by companies. We can also reuse plastic utensils at home because in this way, we are avoiding more production of these products. We should all try to do this at home so we can help save the environment through our own little ways.

Repairing is one good way to help save Mother Nature. If we have things that are slightly broken, we can still try repairing or fixing it instead of buying brand new. For example, we have a pair of shoes that is slightly broken, we can still try fixing it than throwing it and buying a new pair of shoes. By repairing, we can save money and we can also help lessen trash in our environment. We can also conserve our natural resources and save more for our future use. So why buy brand new if we can just repair?

Another way to make a positive encroachment on the environment is by reducing the amount of rubbish we create. Reducing trash is simply minimizing everything we consume in our surroundings. One way of reducing trash is by composting vegetable scraps and yard waste instead of disposing. Another is by keeping disposable goods to a minimum like using real cloth napkins instead of paper towels. With reusing and recycling, it'll be easier for us to reduce and this could be a great effort in saving the environment.

We should refuse buying unnecessary things that are not really needed in our daily lives. We should learn to budget our money for the things we really need. Refusing is one way to conserve money and thus we can also conserve natural resources in our environment that help in preserving Mother Earth.

Kilus and La Mesa Eco Park

The problems in Brgy. Ugong, Pasig is about their trash because there are a lot of plastics from tetra packs and they do not know where to put them.

The people in Barangay Ugong in Pasig are not letting their problem about their trash to worsen. Especially their trash from their used tetra packs. They formed Kilus which makes different products from recyclable tetra packs or the different nonbiodegradable food packagings.

We noticed that the La Mesa Eco Park is a very clean place and they really give importance to God’s gift to us, our environment. They keep La Mesa Eco Park orderly and clean by putting signs that tell the people not to throw trash anywhere. They also have different trash cans that they placed in different areas inside theEco Park. Because of their trash cans, you will really learn to segregate your trash properly because they have different kinds wherein you will put different types of trash like recyclable, and biodegradable kinds of waste. There are also helpers hired to maintain the cleanliness of the whole place to make sure that there wouldn’t be trash everywhere.

We learned a lot from our experience when we went to Kilus and La Mesa Eco Park. We knew and discovered different plants. We didn't expect the kinds of plants that we saw to be found in the Philippines. We realized that we should take care of our environment because without it, we cannot survive. With every little thing we do, we can conribute a lot of things to make our environment cleaner and more beautiful.

A simple thing that we can do about our problem in our environment is by starting with ourselves. We are going to start in our own houses and in our school. We should always think about the things we are buying if they are contributing to the increasing trash in our environment. Like not buying things that can easily be destroyed which, afterwards, will be put in our trash cans. We should also be a good example to others by reusing things that can still be used. Another thing that can help our environment is to segregate ones trash properly. It can become a big help because it will add order to our environment.

Being a student, we dream about a simple community. That simple community is where everyone is in good terms. One way to turn our dream community to a reality is by making friends with the people whom you are not getting along well with. We will ask for forgiveness to the people we have hurt and we will also forgive the people who have hurt me. Anoter way to reach our dream is by showing your goodness and by being a good example especially to the youth because we believe that we can become a good influence to the people whom we are often with.

Save the Enviroment

Changes in lifestyle brought destructive effects
to our environment. As people desire a more
convenient way of life, they resort to human
activities that suit their own needs. These human
activities changed the natural environment one
way or another. Mountains
and hills converted
to subdivisions caused the change in habitat of
animals and resulted to floods and landslides.
Smoking caused air pollution. It is imperative for
people to start the current situation of our
environment and find ways on how lifestyle can
be improved to save it.
