Blog Action Day- Going green....becoming clean...

Today is Blog action day where we blog about how to be more enivormentally frendly. Everywhere I go especially here in the UK, I hear about making the world "greener". Heck, the cabs we use at the office are called “green tomatoes” cabs - they preach having a green environment and less emission of C02 blah blah. Unfortunately I am not sure we have a big campaign for the green life in Nigeria.

I remember when I was young, there was something called “War against indiscipline” in Nigeria. You could say there was some form of "green" awarness back then. People were sanctioned if they were caught littering the roads, peeing on the side of the road or vandalising government property. Sadly I doubt that exists anymore. You see people throwing out litter from a moving vehicle, you see grown men relieving themselves in public. You see vehicles that will surely fail MOT still moving on the road. It seems people back home cannot be bothered anymore about having a clean (green) environment and I wonder why. I guess we can blame it on the government (always easier to blame the government for everything)

I currently don’t live in Nigeria but I think Nigerians in Nigeria need to do something now. We can’t change everybody but we can start to make a change as individuals by doing the RIGHT thing and hope that we can influence people around us to be more responsible towards their immediate environment.

I know going green goes beyond just having a clean environment but I think it is a good start.
