The is a humorous and informative presentation of what a sustainable space is not. It has a great storytelling and was able to capture the essence of a story in a short period of time.
The delivery of the message was clear and concise: a sustainable space use less paper or no paper at all and it avoids the use of plastic.
A sustainable space is in actuality a move towards a sustainable society.
One might ask what makes our society sustainable? Waste is something a sustainable society is not. We have to remember that we live on a finite planet.
To continue living in it we must learn to manage or limit our waste to the very least. Plastic littering everywhere including our oceans is a symptoms that something is wrong in the way we live our lives.
Landfills can only bury our trash but it does not eliminate it.
The ultimate goal of sustainable space is zero
waste by reducing, reuse and recycle our trash
The video promotes greater awareness on the reduction of plastic use. It encourages simplicity by reducing our purchases of the things we do not need and by politely refusing even if given freely.
The emphasis on reducing and refusing was highlighted at one point on the video. This can be taken as a subtle critique on a consumption driven society where we live
The video can resonate with viewers from all walks of life. People can easily identify with it. Because in reality sustainable space or “green living” is not limited within the school campus.
Everyone of us must learn to live a sustainable life. We are just a stone’s throw away from an environmental disaster.
What can we do to prevent such disasetr from happening?. A good way to start is by conserving energy - conserving energy will actually reduce your bill by almost 50%.
Besides the use of energy was the culprit in 21.3 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide each year and over 90% of all greenhouse gasses.
We should also learn to conserve and recycle our waters. If at all possible forgo the use of chemicals and help create a healthy living environment.
