Preserving Biodiversity An effort to reduce waste in order to save and preserve the earth

Purpose of this Campaign

Biodiversity in all aspects of the world has been consistently deteriorating since the dawn of the industrial revolution. For the past couple decades, laws and regulations for waste disposal have steadily decreased while amounts of waste produced per person per day have increased. Waste outlets are declining inconclusively in more developed nations as waste continues to be exported to less developed countries affecting biodiversity, health, and standard of living. The waste sent to these countries affects livestock, water quality, sanitation, and human health creating for inexplicable standards of living. With only one earth fit for human survival, there must be a reduction in the amount of waste produced. Essentially producers and consumers must become aware of the how the waste they produce affects biodiversity to many forms of life in a multitude of ways. The time to come together is now to solve the waste problem and to preserve the earth and its valuable resources necessary to human survival. With that said the end goals are as follows; to improve sanitary conditions, strengthen the standards of living (health and wellness), and restore biodiversity to critical areas in danger of degrading environmental conditions.

The time to take action is immediate and dire to saving the world.

The Problem

Imagine not having a safe and reliable water source. Imagine living in an area surrounded by waste of all sorts. Imagine waking up to a body of water full of waste with dead plant and animal material. Imagine receiving waste from other leading countries because they don’t want the waste to be their problem. In reality, this scenario is far from reality. In fact, this is the reality for the millions of people living in less developed nations whose lives revolve around trying to survive in the deteriorating conditions imposed by the waste exported and transported from more developed countries around the globe. The project is designed to give these people in these nations a chance and a voice to speak their thoughts. For nearly the past century, this has been a growing problem and it is time to put an end to the amount of not only produced in more developed country, but the gross amount of waste that is shipped and exported to those less developed countries. The time to come together is now to solve the waste problem and to preserve the earth and its valuable resources necessary to human survival.

The problem faced by many citizens in less developed countries

Background Information to the Waste Problem

Following the industrial revolution and the world after the Great Depression, landfills were still the primary disposal sites. During such time new consumer goods produced and manufactured made the way life easier for many Americans while the amount of solid waste produced became to increase rapidly throughout the next several decades until the present time. A set of guidelines was finally established in 1953 by the federal government in order to follow and reside with more sanitary and environmentally safe and efficient ways of disposing the waste by putting less stress on the earths biodiversity rate. It was not until the year of 1954 when congress finally amended the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act in order to protect the environment, conserve resources, and reduce the amount of waste being produced. In addition to this act passed, congress also passed the Hazardous and Solid waste amendments to establish new requirements for hazardous waste disposal in addition for the EPA to develop new requirements for establishing new solid waste landfills. Federal authority was needed on this issue prior to the industrial revolution as the government kicked in to late as now humans as along with the environment are paying the costs still to this date.

Landfills are reaching maximum capacity as space is decreasing in more developed countries.

Our Goals and Objectives

1) To raise public awareness among businesses, producers and consumers

This project aims to educate the general public overall consisting of producers and consumers in sum, of the current dangers waste is imposing on citizens lives in less developed as the waste we produced has no outlet so hence is exported to these regions affecting those citizens overall way and quality of life.

2) To decrease amount of capital waste produced in MDC's,(improving biodiversity, lowering ecological footprint)

By lowering the amount of capital waste produced, this opens the window of opportunity for improvement of these areas severely impacted a chance to recover and restore conditions that they were at one point in time prone to living in as these conditions shall overtime be restored back to a decent standard of living for these citizens. This can also give a chance for the environment to return to normality so that we can preserve the resources the earth currently provides necessary to human survival before these resources run dry.

3) To promote for the creation of new laws and technologies to combat waste problem

With new research facilities, new technology being patented and created, and with the passage of new federal legislature in support of stricter environmental laws this is a major first step towards improvement as the duration for the campaign can last years and even up to several decades before improvement is seen in areas of poor environmental stability.

Conclusion

This organizations ultimate goal is to give a voice to the citizens living in these less developed countries and how it has affected their lives; it is designed to give all humans regardless of income, location, or wealth a fair and equal chance of life. Over the course of the next several years and with the help of generous donors, new technologies and research facilities can be established to help combat this waste problem less developed countries are currently facing as the crisis continues to intensify in several of these regions. The secondary function of this campaign is to raise awareness to not only big businesses but everyday producers and consumers who contribute waste in some form on a daily basis and to further educate and inform them of the current environmental misfortunes in many less developed countries around the world. Overall, it is the moral responsibility of citizens in the more developed countries around the world to become conscience of how the waste they produce may not affect them directly but has a direct impact on other citizens in other parts of the world and what they can do as individuals to lower their overall ecological footprint.
