Let’s remember it at first…
The sand is missing. Actually, it’s the 3th world resource the most used in our society. After the water and the air. More than 200 different ways to use it : In construction companies to create the glass…well, every one heard about this. The Sand is used to create the glass the most by them… let’s laugh together ha ha ha…
No… obviously no ! In glass industry, they use 70% of sand but… not only. What is the product the most use by them ? The concrete… yep. maybe you will be surprise to learn that concrete is made of 1/3 of cement and 2/3 of sand ! What the f… so concrete is not concrete ? No concrete concrete…so ! Yeah.. i m a naive one. I thought till now that concrete was made from cement only.
And what more?? sand is use to build our road too ? Okay okay ! Let me think two seconds so… when i’m watching a beautiful place like this one…
I’m only watching tonnes and tonnes of sand floating on the sea when it should be wandering under the sea !
For example : An hospital is 3.000 tonnes of sand. A highway is 30.000 tonnes of sand every kilometer. A nuclear center… damn, I don’t even want to tell you this… 12.000.000 tonnes of sand. Yeah, viva ecologia !
Well, obviously to build all of our building, they need to extract the sand. They killed the quarries of sand around the world. So they started to extract the sand from our beautiful rivers. When they extract river’s sand, we end like this :
The feet on the water. This year, the famous french Seine river have known his worst flood. From Paris to Le Havre. And more they steal the sand from river, less there is on the beaches. Cause rivers throws itself in the Ocean at the end. Yeah, sometimes the sand sails from a far far away places than we were thinking.
And when the rivers are too poor, they just go grabbing it on the Ocean. 400.000m3 on every extracting boat.
So we are proud when few companies try to do a good thing to help recycling and environments acting. Here we are. Pays de Retz. They had a great idea. We will recycle oysters and seashells, at least during Christmas time. Every family could throw their seashells in special recycled garbage away. The best ideaaaa !! I loved this idea so much. So I read more about this acting.
All empty seashells are collecting by the city and sending in this enterprise : « Bâti-recyclage » !! Yessssss… we are so happy when something like this happens, right? But… wait… to be used in agriculture field again ??? Why ?
Let’s read more… Bâti-recyclage enterprise belongs to G.B.H. Okay. The director of Bâti-recyclage is Thierry Biron. G.B.H. company belongs to » Biron construction entreprise ».
So now… Let me ask a last question : Why does a construction enterprise use so well-done recycled sand to agriculture floor and not… to build his so sweetly Homes ?
Another marvelous idea : Did you hear before about this new concept ?
The Sand-machine, created by the Netherlands Brand « DB export ». When you throw your glass bottle on it, it extract the sand and give it back. the sand gives the glass who gives the sand again after 5 minutes on this machine. 5 bottles give 1kg of sand. I loved this ideaaaa so much again !! And yes… I read more. The little sweet fairy tales explain us that DB export was created by the old Morton who loved to create new amazing concept as Leonardo da vinci. Woowwww Amazing one ! We all need this machine every where on our beaches. So why is there not yet ?
Reply : cause it was not drawn to be exported somewhere else than in DB pockets. We are calling it : A great buzzzz marketing one ! They will not give their invention to help beaches. They are selling their recycled sand to construction enterprises ( which may use it on agriculture field too ) and then, they give us their brilliant invention to clear their name and their reputation of big polluter. They are so proud to use only glass to create their beer bottles. But right now, ecology is On, polluter glass maker are Out. So they used their genius idea to do this :
And they are proud of this too… !! Of course, the sand machine doesn’t circulate a lot in the country too. And the old Morton is probably drying his tears with a mountain of dollars. Viva ecologia !
It’s just two examples between so many others but if someone here can explain this non-sense to me, please, just do it !
I’m a positive one who want to trust that there is somewhere people who really want to save the earth and are acting to do it hardly, with all their mind and heart. But if we are things to marketing only, to increase our own money and business… all of this is vain.
I don’t want to give up on people. I don’t want to give up on us.
Cause caring about the earth is caring about people. it’s caring about all of us…
