Earth Day and the need for a comprehensive effort

Karachi has literally become a trash site in recent times. Except for few there is hardly any place that remains clean. I took these pics (Original 1, Original 2, Original 3) recently and though i knew people dont care about cleanliness but i didnt know this much of garbage & ugliness appears at SEA VIEW every morning(7:00am). Some serious efforts required by all sections of the society if they want to see their city clean in coming years.
Earth Day - Karachi
We have done enough of preachings in this regard and now its time for some action otherwise we have already started to witness the climate and environmental degradation in rest of the world. Interestingly we dont need something special on our behalf i.e only making sure we dont throw garbage outside our home/office/vehicle, a simple rule that will do wonders. Just like any other issue i am sure there would be LAWs already in the book but someone from HEAVEN is required to enforce em on ground. At times even if there is a site people feel tired walking few steps and put the garbage at proper place. Also, please keep in mind that there are related problems associated with this i.e the standard of education needs to be improved. More and more schools be encouraged to be a part of the cleanliness drive and dedicate sometime in respective school/college/university to such causes. Many people i have seen are dedicating their time in activities like cleaning beach etc. but my point is, why do we have to spread the ugliness at first place? Is prevention not better than cure?

    Yes prevention is better than cure but not everyone thinks that way (sadly). It’s about time we realize that WE the people of our beloved city are the ones who make it dirty. By throwing garbage everywhere. And then we complain about living in a dirty city. I don’t like in karahci anymore but when I go over and try not to throw stuff out on the roads, people think i’m a retard! It feels so sad to be an outcast while trying to do something good. I hope everyone realizes it soon that its pretty cool to be clean and not throw things on the road rather than doing the opposite. Same goes for other things like speeding which is supposed to be very cool but takes a life in a heart beat.

    Let’s all make this planet a better place to live!

    by looking at this…we can say is it those bins and public washrooms are more important to build or rather than having a flyover at every intersection. Local gov. should place priority on things they should be doing.
