Back when time began, no one knew about chemicals. If the earth didn’t produce it, it didn’t exist. Medicines were fresh and dried plants and cleaning consisted of using a plant named soaproot very occasionally in the river or whatever other water source was available. Natural means of elimination were used and areas set aside just for that use on the land.
As time went on, the human race got a little better at understanding the environment and began to work their surroundings in a way that proved beneficial. This process continued to evolve into what we do today. The problem arose with the inability to stop changing what didn’t need to be changed in our efforts to have every luxury the land could provide.
Horses became a mode of transportation and were used exclusively for many years. Then, someone figured out how to make a bicycle and a car. Horses simply couldn’t go fast enough for us anymore. With the introduction of the car came the first real explosion of pollution in the air. Factories had been the main culprit of this before we started driving.
In our homes, simple soaps and water were abandoned. We began to play around with mimicking nature and to create our own line of cleaning supplies. No one thought to check out the safety of the ingredients we were using. Some of the compounds we crafted were harsh and carcinogenic. We didn’t care, or so we thought.
As advancements were made in this area of human development, animals started disappearing. Plant life once so common vanished almost overnight. We taxed Mother Nature and she suffered the injuries as best she could.
Once it we realized the gravity of our act upon the laws of nature, we began to look seriously into the why of the whole mess. That’s where we are today. Searching for answers to reverse what we have done. And, in so doing, the cry of Jesus becomes more powerful : “Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do”.
We are coming of age as a species. We are beginning to know exactly what we’ve done and realizing that we are accountable for our actions. Where we go from here is up to us. It is my belief that we should show remorse for the destruction of our natural resources and the scars we’ve emblazoned on the earth by restoring our environment to its former glory.
It isn’t that hard to do, but it does require some sacrifice on our parts. Using environmentally friendly compounds such as good old soap and water, plant cleaners that don’t harm us or the creatures we share existence with everyday. By giving our comforts up and applying a bit of elbow grease and merging that with technologies turn toward reversing the effects we have wrought upon ourselves, we can create a clean planet and a vibrantly healthy planet at the same time. Chemicals. They’re everywhere: in the air we breath, the food we eat, and the products we clean with. As a consequence, diseases such as COPD, asthma, cancer, and allergies are rampant in our society. Pollution is at such a high that no one blinks an eye anymore when it’s mentioned. And, we are the cause of the world we have so carefully created in the name of progress.
Looking back, it’s easy to see how we’ve done the deed. It simply isn’t so apparent how to get back from whence we came. We’ve become so adept at using the latest and greatest in technology for every day tasks that there is a fear of returning to a simpler time. Comfort has become more important than the cost to attain it.
