上個週末我們非常忙碌！我們週六去淨灘，週日在公園裡靜坐。週六參與行動的台灣人比外國人多 - 這是前所未有的。希望未來還能繼續保有這樣踴躍的參與人數！
為了無聲者的匿名人在本週六下午3:30至7點之間在西門捷運站出口六有一項行動。有興趣的人可以在出席我們的聚會之前前往參加。 FB link
Last weekend, we were very busy! We had a beach clean-up on Saturday and a meditation in the park on Sunday. On Saturday, we had more locals then foreigners- a first! We hope to keep up these great numbers in the future.
One rebel brought up during our last beach clean-up how she felt like doing the clean-ups were a waste of time because the beach would be covered in trash again. She made a very good point and I thought I would discuss why we do beach clean-ups in the first place. Beach clean-ups are a great way to get more people involved and allows for families to come and do something together. It also allows for discussion about why plastic ends up on the beaches.
The key point here is to raise awareness of the bigger issue: the climate and ecological emergency. Most people don't realize how much trash ends up on the beach. Once you see it firsthand; it is more impacting than being told to stop using plastic. We have to stop plastic at the source. If you see the sink is overflowing, you wouldn't start filling a cup of water and pouring it out would you? You would turn off the faucet. This is what we must do to solve the world plastic problem.
However, we will continue doing beach clean-ups because it is a non-direct way to educate the public about the problem. I personally became more aware of the environment thorough doing this.
