Earth Day in Miri

Today, it is Earth Day in Miri. Anyway, I didn't go. I saw some photos of it in Facebook.

What exactly Earth Day is trying to tell us? I guess it is trying to create the awareness of practicing 3R, reduce, reuse, and recycle. Reduce, resuse and recycle plastic! why plastic? Because plastic is not biodegradable.

But...

It is fashion show today, with models wearing newspaper, plastic, laundry basket, cans, straws...

Are they really using used laundry basket, used plastic in designing those clothes in the fashion show?
There is one model wearing newspaper and the dress is really nice. It really convery the message. To save the earth, we have to wear newspaper and magazine as hat.

What about the straw dress? Are those straws really used straws?? It is the straws people use to sip water. Did they really collect used straws from hawkers to make the dress?

I hope they really re-use used stuff. If not, they will be creating new rubbish instead of reducing rubbish.

It is just some thoughts from a couch potato.

Hehehe I loike that,especially the the used straw thing, ermm wonder what will be like if they collect all the straw from the hawkers. Indeed we hope they does not only show it as a fashion but in doing as well. My sister told me yesterday how proud she is planting some trees in the school for celebrating earth day but when I asked her what Earth Day means to her she said: It's the day when we take care of our surrounding..
