Care for mother nature is wealth

Rosylyne Nabaala
Posted July 5, 2018 from Kenya

My group of 30 thirty women and I planned to go for a picnic to the beach, it was a happy day for us on that day and the sun was shining so the ladies deside to swim. After eating our meals of fish, potatoes and rice plus snacks and juice, our yoga teacher advice us not to swing immediately after meals so we waited for twenty minutes talking about the wonderful mother nature then we deside to swing jumping and diving like dolfins in the water . We stopped swimming and join our yoga teacher for yoga fun then we went back to the water for swimming again. At the sea shore there were some plastics and fliplops and other things which are making the beach to be a bad environment for the living creatures like tattles, fish and many more. After a long discussion we deside to collect the trash and clean the beach twice a week and recycling the weast , since that day we are not throwing or burning the weast but now we are making earings , bracelets, necklaces, table matts using flip flops so we are taking from trash to cash and at the same time we are careing for our environment and as we know that our health is our wealth. Now we have a smart tourist shop full of recycled materials and goods ready to be sold to the tourist and local. Now we are training another group called Harmony widows group and other youth group to help us clean our beach and taking care of our environment in general  because when you destroy nature it will come back to you and destroy you.

Taking care of the ocean , forest, sea, river  and the beach is to care for the creatures living in or on it . 

When we care to care for the mother nature we are caring for our wealth.

Hi Rosylyne. Thanks for sharing your story. I love that you are tidying up the beach, caring for the beaches and using the trash and upcycling it for goods. That's awesome! It's even more great that you're training another group of women to do the same. Yay:) Do you have any photos, videos or social media page(s) to share about your business?

Keep up the good work, and have a great day!

Dear Roselyne,

I loved reading about you and your group of women taking time together to have a beautiful day on the beach, and diving like dolphins in the water. But then your story took such a deep turn into even so much more. I passionately love the Earth and it moved me so much to imagine you all cleaning up the beach, committing to keep it clean, and turning trash into beautiful objects, truly what sustainable business means. So many people in this world just throw away trash not even thinking about where it will lie, what damage it will do. "When we care to care for the mother nature we are caring for our wealth". So true.

I am so glad to meet you here, dear Sister!
