The environmental problems that today’s world is facing are so great that there is little ordinary people can do to improve the situation. So, governments and large organizations should be responsible for reducing the amount of damage being done to the environment. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
In recent years, the environmental damage due to pollution has been enormous. The causes for this are not only the huge industries or weak government policies, but every individual is responsible. In my opinion, all of us collectively play a significant role in reducing the hazards caused by irresponsible living. The following essay will portray what the individuals and large companies along with authorities can do to reduce the environmental damage.
The governments of developing nations maintain weak policies towards industries in regards to maintaining the environment due to the fact that these companies generate large revenues and contribute to the rise of the economy. I relate to this; the industries exploit the law and produce goods from consuming the resources to an unexpected level. The consequence is huge waste acquired. This is released in the environment in the forms of harmful gases or drained in fresh flowing water in rivers or left on the landscape, causing harm to the bio-life and environment. Suppose the authorities implement strict law and penalize the industries, who disregard the law in the management of waste. The companies will abide by the law. At the same time, the industries will not over exceed in production.
On the other hand, every individual is responsible for maintaining the environment clean. To illustrate, the Japanese government has strict penalties for those who disregard the environment. At the same time, they have campaigns and education in managing and maintain the surroundings by segregating waste and following Reduce, Recycle and Reuse policies. When the value of preserving nature and saving the globe is instilled in the younger age, the children who will grow up will be responsible adults in harnessing the hazards caused by nature.
In conclusion, although the contribution of the individual person is very less in comparison to large companies in causing harm to nature, each of us, along with multinational companies and governments, have a vital role in reducing the harm caused by our irresponsible behaviors towards nature.
