Every day we go outside to enjoy our lives not knowing how our beautiful earth will affect our health. With this day and age it is very important to understand not only how we can make the earth live longer but how the earth can continue to make us healthy and our lives longer.
Our life long health depends on the air we breathe, the water we drink, and all of that comes for our ecosystem . The trees that we take for granted actually bring us clean air to breath, fresh food, and possible treatments to different health ailments.
Look outside your window See those beautiful plants, tress and ponds around you, all of these of natures beautiful gifts are affected by our behaviors of today. This includes today’s companies, different types of transportation and the trash that someone leaves behind from anyone in cars, and companies.
On Earth Day it is imperative to learn about all of the ways we can improve our nature, our earth, and our lives.
One piece of trash that can directly impact our earth is the disposal of medication in areas that medication is not supposed to be disposed of that’s why every year in April so very close to Earth Day is the day is, The National Prescription Drug Take- Back Day. This day educates people the correct way to dispose of their unused and old medications.But beware it is not only prescribed medications that need to be safely discarded, be sure to safely discard over the counter drugs too.
By finding a pharmacy is most the time all that is needed to discard old and unneeded medication. Even in some stores you can purchase items in which the medications can be safely recycled or discarded.
Not only is it not only medications that we can learn about, the proper way to dispose of trash will help sustain life on the earth for quite some time. The landfills are filling up faster than ever and sometimes it is not even really trash that is thrown away. With all of these new medications becoming over the counter medications; it is now time to take back our landfills and make sure that they have one use and one use only for those items that are can be disposed of outside without harming our earth, our citizens and our children.
