People produces constantly cor consuption... In a sense, the slogan of today’s world; “produce to consume...” Undoubtedly, each measured production is important for human development. However, producing only for consumption means destroying the world quickly.

The world teaches us every day obstinately. Its teaching is sometimes very soft, sometimes very hursh such as floods, storms, uninhabitable places because of pollution, droughts.

Can a person learn? It cannot be said that he learned much while looking at life.

Another thing we need to learn is that everything we produce and consume is recyclable again...

In the darkness of the morning, a group of people on the streets collect everything that can be recycled from what the consuming people throw away as “garbage”. These people are actually doing such a "great" job that most people are not even aware of it. Recycling is now a big sector and even the smallest activity here, sometimes consciously and sometimes unconsciously, contributes to the future a little more livable...

Workers of recycling are mostly poor of Analio and metropolitan suburbs and refugees who had to leave their country. These people are life warriors who don’t leave the front of humanity – albeit out of necessity.

Conscious use of resources for a sustainable environment requires us to reach that consciousness. Our definitions change. It should not be 'garbage' that we throw away but 'waste' that we will add back to production. Recycled wastes; the benefit provided by the use of energy, labor and natural resources alleviates the burden of people on the world.

And the subject of all this positivity; those great people who paced the streets from the darkness of the morning and gather everything to recycle. They are the unknown heroes of today...
