In the philippines, flood is every where. Even if there is no typhoon warning, we still encounter flood. The authorities believe that improper disposal of garbages causes this and is now working on banning the use of plastic cellophane. I just want to share my thought on this. The problem here is not the cellophane that clogged the water ways. You find cellophane now. If they ban it, its true, they would never find them clogging the water ways anymore, not the plastic anymore. Think of something else. A bag made of something biodegradable, not a bad idea. They are now thinking of making biodegradble cellophanes. Is this something to ease the problem on flood? Think twice. Assuming they are good at banning plastic, I am sure it is still the same thing. People will still keep throwing them away. They are not teaching them.
