Our PSA has many different components to it such as various statistics, images of litter in Philadelphia (cred. to Catherine), a news interview on the littering problem in Philadelphia via Mayor Jim Kenney, a scripted PSA explaining the various negative effects of littering outside of Philadelphia, and a poem about littering (cred. to Kasai). I chose this topic because littering is a huge, huge problem in our city and needs to be addressed more. I was the director for most of the footage present and composed the video. One thing I am proud of is that I made sure everything was organized. I made sure everyone was on task and doing their role. If we did anything differently it would probably be focusing on our city more than the general world. The most meaningful part of creating the PSA was just the knowledge and awareness we were able to bring to everyone. Everyone litters so much and hopefully, our PSA can change the minds of our peers and cause them to walk to the nearest trash can.
Billions of pounds of clothing are wasted/thrown away by Americans every year. Our goal when we created this sustainable business was to greatly reduce that amount. The clothing and textile industry is very harmful to the environment. By recycling clothing, some of the pollution and damage that is being done to the earth during clothing production can be avoided. More than 2,700 Liters of water are used to make a single cotton t-shirt, toxic acid gasses like hydrogen chloride are emitted into the atmosphere, etc. If we all thrifted/recycled our clothing, this pollution would be greatly reduced. We can create a sustainable future by recycling or resources rather than throwing them away, reducing the amount of time spent and pollution created by making new material. Recycling clothing reduces water pollution, the amount of greenhouse gases being released, as well as the amount of materials harvested from the earth/animals.

Tsunamis are enormous and destructive ocean waves triggered by earthquakes under the seafloor.
Hydrosphere: During tsunamis, saltwater from the oceans rushes the land. This pollutes groundwater beneath the soil. Groundwater is supposed to be freshwater as it supplies drinking water to 51% of the U.S. population and 99% of the rural population.
Geosphere: Tsunamis wash away and displace a lot of the soil and rock they come in contact with once they reach land.
Biosphere: Just like all natural disasters, Tsunamis kill many humans and animals when they hit land. They beach many land animals and leave the land flooded, ultimately drowning plants.
The Atmosphere is not impacted by Tsunamis.
An understanding of environmental science can aid in the handling of natural disasters because it can better prepare people by making them knowledgeable on what exactly they’re dealing with and more importantly how to prepare for it if they cannot avoid it.
To create a sustainable future, most importantly, we must do things to reduce climate change. Not only is climate change negatively impacting the biosphere, but it is a factor in the increase of natural disasters. We need to do many things such as:
-Reducing plastic and water waste
-Ride a bicycle to reduce air pollution from vehicles, etc.

Creativity while learning makes me more excited to learn. When we learn, write, and do projects in learning environments, creativity is a must. It pushes most people into having excitement to learn. Without a learning environment that includes creativity, learning tends to get really boring. Think about it, if you were sitting in a boring classroom with no color, being given tedious school work, and you were being taught by a teacher with a monotone voice, your learning experience wouldn’t be so fun and interesting. You wouldn’t enjoy learning, and you would dread being in that specific class. This is because the learning environment lacks creativity.

‘If I can't unsee this then you can't either!' Playboy model Dani Mathers sparks a huge backlash after body shaming a naked woman in the gym showers on Snapchat.
Model Dani Mathers body shamed a woman taking a shower at the gym and put pictures of her doing so on Snapchat and captioned them “If I can’t unsee this, you can’t either”. Apparently, the photos she took body shaming the women were supposed to be used in a private conversation and shared with one person. After she posted the pictures to her thousands of followers, she was called out for body shaming and sued by the woman she body shamed. She immediately apologized for her actions after being bashed on social media by millions of people.
Her actions have had a major impact on her reputation and how people see her as a person. People that have not known her before this incident have had a horrible first impression about her. The story and the images are still circulating around the internet and she cannot remove them because the pictures have been screenshotted, saved, reposted, and shared around the globe. This has to deal with lack of control, when you post something, you have to be mindful what you post because it can be shared in an instant and you cannot control what happens to your post and what people do with it. It technically will never be deleted.
When she posted those pictures to social media, she couldn’t undo it. This has to deal with permanence. What she posted would never be erased and whatever she did on the internet is permanent and will circulate around on the web forever.
People started sharing, reposting ,and screenshotting the photos that the model took immediately after she shared those pictures. This is how the person she took the photos of eventually found out about the photos that were taken of her. This has to deal with Immediacy . Immediately after you post something, people are already viewing it and sharing it with others.
My advice for what Dani Mathers on what she should have done during that situation would be that she could’ve kept her thoughts to herself. It was not necessary for her to put her negative thoughts about another person on social media. Especially if it’s negative or hurtful because that can lower people’s self confidence and cause them to harm themselves.
