Believe it or not but once upon a time at some stage of my life, I had seriously thought of joining the Greenpeace. Well, not exactly one of those guys in 2-sitter canoe stalling and blocking the pathway of a colossal Queen Victoria-like ship, protesting against the hunting of humpback whales. I’m not that ambitious by the way.
In my mind, I imagined to be something like, say, a tree-hugger. A tree-hugger who cant bear the sight of a logger.
However during one of the trips up the KL Tower I noticed we are actually surrounded by jungles and I thought hey, fuck the future generation. We have abundance of tree still that I hope the trees will only be wiped out by development once I’m already on my deathbed.
So naturally I ditched the idea until recently when a certain greedy developer, backed by a certain party decided to milk in some cash at the expense of mother nature and in the process destroying a lake surrounded by lush greenery.
That was when I renewed my ambition and play a more active role in making sure the environment we live in is breathable.
So when the World Environmental Day got underway last week, and being fully aware I should play some part due to my status as an environmentalist, I got down to work albeit unconventionally.
Planting tree sucks ass. Planting trees are either for kids or politician posing for the camera and all the boring shit. Get bent, guys. Should have tried something more unique.
I on the other hand, did something original.
When I needed to smoke, I locked myself in the room with all the windows tightly shut.
I only flushed the WC after the fourth time taking my leak.
If had wanted to take a dump, I would have made sure I’d take another 3 more times before flushing down all the crap. But glad I didn’t need to do any serious business that day. Conserving water is also part of saving the environment incase you didn’t know yet.
I blew my nose with only 2 pieces of tissue paper used throughout the day. The trick is to fold it over and over again until every inch of the tissue paper is used. Imagine if thousand of people practice on this same method, we could at least save one tree.
I know, some may say its too small a contribution and how tiny a difference it would make.
The question should be this instead. As a citizen of the Earth, what have YOU done on your part?
