Better For the Planet, by Gerard Marcé

 

Nowadays I’m at home, confined, grumpy, bitter and bored. In fact, all these feelings are caused by the coronavirus. In my opinion, that virus has been created by a world power with the intention to show its power to dominate the world. However, I think it’s a good opportunity for us: we can start to do the things well as a people and a society. First of all, we shouldn’t think only in ourselves but in all the other people and the most important fact: we must take care of the place where we live, our planet. In Spain we have a saying: “No hay mal que por bien no venga.” It means that if something is wrong, it may bring something better afterwards. In my opinion, if we talk about globalization and environmental pollution, the world is improving from the beginning of the confinement until now when we are reducing our activity. In conclusion, we pollute and consume less, so it’s beneficial for the planet.
