TRADITIONAL HEALTH~

Did you know that our body is like a machine? The health of the human body is when the body is in perfect working condition. Because our body has interrelated components, and if one hurts, then all the other parts will sense it too. So we must maintain our health by exercising daily, maintaining a healthy diet, and getting sufficient rest.
can people get sick? Of course, Because it is not always possible for our bodies to perform perfectly everyday activities. When the engine breaks down, then we should fix it. Just like our bodies, when we’re sick we usually go to doctors. There we would have been given some sort of capsule or tablet chemical. if we want to be healthy have we to consume a chemical? No, because chemicals can’t be consumed constantly because they are not good for our health. There’s a traditional remedy that is better than chemicals medicine. besides, herbal remedies are equally popular, and many use them. The benefits of traditional medicine are widely recognized. Besides, these organic supplements contain fewer chemicals and are less likely to cause irritation and allergies. For example, if our bodies are in pain we go to the masseuse. Massage is a method of healing or traditional health therapy, putting stress on the body. It may give relaxation, comfort, and fitness.
After a massage, it is usually recommended to drink herbs. Herbal remedies are the names of traditional medicines from Indonesia. Herbs are made from natural ingredients, consisting of parts of plants such as roots, fruits, and so forth. So when we are sick we can drink herbs, as they are already safe for health and safe for daily consumption. So it can be concluded that health is very important for someone. Herbal medicine is one of the natural medicines that we can consume because herbal medicine has good benefits without any harmful side effects.

Home schooling

Education is very important in our life. There are many ways to take education, we can start education for childhood to adulthood. One of the keys education is learning. Learning can be anywhere. We can study at school (Formal and Non formal). Also, we can study at home or we usually know “Home schooling” or home education or home based learning. Learning at school and at home is a child education model that has a purpose of seeking goodness and exploring the optimal potential of the child and how to become a good human. But, there are fundamental differences in learning proses at school and at home. For example, curriculum. Formal school apply a more stringent curriculum because they are designed by educational experts and education minor and the ministry of national education. While homeschooling has a more flexible curriculum cause it can use curriculum at formal school or it can follow the curriculum from abroad or it can make a special curriculum it depend on to their need and interest of children. The role of parents. In the Formal school, the role of parents is not dominant. Education is carried out by system and the teachers. Therefore, the teacher plays important role for students because the teacher is a shadow of their life. Contras with homeschooling, the role of parents more dominant and it strongly determine the success of students. Let’s explore about home schooling.

Home Schooling or independent schooling or home based learning is an alternative educational method where parents choose to educate their children at home than in formal school. Everyone said “Home schooling is a method of learning that is carried out at home not at school where the teachers are our parents or supervisors.  But on the other hand, home schooling has advantages and disadvantages. So, let’s see the advantage and disadvantage of home schooling

The advantage of home schooling. Firstly, home schooling allows parents and children to work out a schedule that will best work for the child, the parents can choose anything the schedule that their want. Secondly, children can develop their talents, the parents can determine their own topic, time duration, learning style to according of their interest, abilities of learning style. As we know, every child has different talents and interest and the ability to process information. Therefore, home schooling learning method can be more optimal to develop the talents of child according their wishes and abilities. Thirdly, the child can enough rest, formal school routines that require children to arrive early and sometimes they come home to late in the afternoon, it can reduce children’s rest time. Therefore, sometimes they fall asleep in class during lessons. In contrast to home schooling the children who get longer rest time. So, they can follow the lessons given properly also they can be focus of learning process early. Fourthly, the parents can increase the association of children and the parents can be continue to develop during the learning process and   interaction of children who participate in home schooling. So that, children can avoid promiscuity while they are babies. The parent can control the association of children. It is very useful for parents to keep their child. Fifthly, Students can learn to relax, because students can set the time as they pleased. Because the principle of homeschooling, students are not burdened with the task as a public school. Usually the students do not wear uniforms like in public school. It cannot be bored for children style. Another advantages is flexibility in time and curriculum. With home schooling parents can set the curriculum around vacations, natural beauty etc.

On the other hand, home schooling has a many disadvantage. Firstly, homeschooling can spoil parent’s time cause home schooling need a lot of time in preparation. The parents have to research topic, prepare the lessons, set up the projects and the parents have to prepare personal notes for children. So, children do not forget the lessons that have been learned. This is a little inconvenient for parents because they have many activities, especially mother’s activities such as cooking, washing clothes, cleaning the house etc. Secondly, spend more time, we have to set a schedule and we have to arrange the time to study and do daily activities at home or work at the office.  Not only set a schedule but also the parents have to keep time their children. Secondly, Home schooling is expensive. Of course you are, when the parents do not have more time to teach their children. They have to pay more for teachers to teach their children. It will be more expensive than in regular school, in the regular school the teachers teaches several children at one time. In regular school there are many students. So it is comfortable for parents to pay this education of children. But, at home, they only teach one student because the teachers spend more time teaching one student than in regular school. So, teachers have to get paid more. The main effect of homeschooling on social life is the limited scope of children’s association and friendship. Homeschooling makes children’s social life limited because children only interact with the teaching staff and their parents than with friends studying in formal or regular schools.

Basically, everything has advantage and disadvantage thing it is depend on how we think about it. Maybe home schooling is useful when children need more attention, talent than others. So we should make sure that we understand all of the criteria involved the home education. Moreover, I prefer study education at school then at homeschooling because they can interact with others people.

 

5 Of Ancestor’s Favourite And Effective Medicine Methods You Should Try

     A healthy body makes us free and comfortable to do various kinds of activities that we want. A healthy body condition has sufficient supply of energy and stamina that enabling us to move more actively, think more creatively and work more productively. Therefore, health is the most precious asset from Allah swt that we should maintain very well. Maintaining health can be done by consuming healthy and nutritious food and drinks in a balanced portion, applying a regular diet and exercise, keeping the body, clothes and environment clean from dirth, germs and bacteria that cause disease and even conducting a preventive theraphy if it is needed.

     Apart from natural factors and destiny, our negligence in maintaining health can cause us to get sick. In this modern era where technology develops highly sophisticated, including in medical field, many people take chemical medicine as a solution to the health problems they face. Chemical medicine is a treatment that involves chemical drugs made by factory machines that can be obtained from hospitals, pharmacies and some can be bought at stalls that sell drugs. It is absolutely right that chemical drugs are practical, have the potential to prevent and cure diseases and some are quite easy to obtain at affordable prices. Yet, there are some dangers chemical medicine has which really need to be considered. Among them are the use of chemical drugs really requires a doctor’s recommendation. Taking chemical drugs without clear recommendation and appropriate dosage from a doctor or health experts has the potential to cause excessive anxiety due to the side effects of chemical drugs, an underdose or overdose, even disruptions to the performance of the systems in the body such as the nervous and brain systems, digestive system, respiratory circulation system , blood pressure, and other disorders in internal or external organs of the human body. In a short term, mistakenly taking chemical drugs as a home remedy, especially chemical drugs with a relatively fast working system, can cause a high risk of death for the user. Meanwhile, in a long term, the habit of consuming chemical drugs can trigger the need for an increased dose due to viral or bacterial resistance from diseases that have been experienced before. The most dangerous thing is if the resistance is increasing continuously and requires the presence of new chemical drugs as an effective substitute, while the drug is still not found, in this case the patient will be difficult to get help.

“Seeing the society’s complaints about their health problems today which are increasingly diverse, this is quite different from the condition of ancient peole who did not know various kinds of chemical medicines. The majority of people in ancient times were known to have stronger physical endurance so they rarely got sick. This is because they were familiar with several traditional medicine system. That system does not only focus on treatment methods, but also on prevention methods. Here are 5 traditional medicine methods believed to be effective and loved by the majority of people in ancient times that I would like to recommend you.”

1. Body Scraping
Body scraping is a traditional medicine method which is done by putting eucalyptus oil onto the body skin (generally on the back and back side of the neck) then scraping it with a coin or spoon until the skin looks reddish. This method has been believed to be able to remove wind trapped in the body which causes people to ‘catch a cold’ and ‘chill’.

2. Massage
Massage is a traditional medicine method that is most popular and lovable method and oftenly practiced by most of people today, or perhaps throughout time. This method consists of several types. Each of type has different massage techniques and benefits. Beauty massage is useful for treating the beauty of the body shape by tightening the muscles on the face or other desired body parts. Relaxation massage can help soothe tense muscles to relieve stress or simply for relaxation. Relaxation massage can be enjoyed by anyone even pregnant women and babies. Yet, of course for two last mentioned, the technique used is a little bit different. Here the touch and massage pressure are super super gentle and extra careful. In addition, there is also massage for treatment. This massage usually uses certain methods to treat certain health problems, such as pinched nerve, nausea, fever and headache, sprained ankle and others.

3. Herbal Medicine
Herbal medicine is a traditional medicine method that use herbal concoctions taken from herbal plants in nature and some products of animal. The concoctions are very diverse depending on the type of benefits of the herbs needed.

Ginseng, for example, can boost immune system and increase energy. STMJ (milk-eggs-honey-ginger) is useful for increasing stamina. Temulawak is useful for increasing appetite in children. Galian Singset is able to slim woman’s body and lower cholesterol. Rose water can be used as a natural toner for facial skin. Camomile tea and ginger tea is useful for relieving menstrual pain. The antiseptic substance in a boiled betel leaf can treat various types of skin diseases ranging from acne to itching. Coconut water is commonly used for first aid in case of food poisoning. The concoction of rice and kencur is helpful for warding off free radical and relieving muscle aches. In addition, the result of research at the University of Tanjungpura Pontianak found that the phenolic substance in kencur rice concoction can prevent diabetes. Aloe vera can be used as a natural remedy for a simple ringworm case. Honey is a herbal product of bee that has lots of functions for various kinds of diseases. And there are still many others. A perception that herbal concoction is always taste bitter is not completely right. There are several herbal concoctions that are sweet and tasty such as honey, camomile tea, lemon tea, turmeric-tamarind, turmeric-milk, turmeric- beluntas and many others. Also, herbal medicine is not always to be consumed as internal remedy but some are beneficial to apply as a body wash such as boiled betel leaves or facial wash such as rose water or even to put on the skin as an ointment.

“These herbal concoctions has been believed to be effective in prevention and medicine methods for centuries. In addition, herbal medicine does not cause too many serious side effects, can be easily made at home and are environmentally friendly.”

4. Cupping or Bekam
Cupping or Bekam is a medicine technique that is done by heating small cups filled with certain herbal concoction then placing it onto the desired skin until the hot air in the cup feels cold. This technique is believed to be able to flush out toxins in the body, relieve aches and inflammation throughout the body and provide relaxation.

5. Acupunture Theraphy
Acupuncture therapy is usually done by inserting special needles into acupuncture points of the body. This technique is believed to be able to overcome various complaints such as lower back pain, high blood pressure, fertility problems, stress, etc.

“By looking at the dangers of chemical medicine as mentioned before and then the advantages of traditional medicine which has less risk of causing side effects, is more environmentally friendly and easier to make yourself at home than chemical medicine, this way can be an alternative solution for us to overcome the health problems we may face.”

Social Media

Hello good people , it’s me… Thoyyibah 🙂

Social media is an online media that makes it easy for its users to conduct social interactions online. Social media is a tool that is becoming quite popular these days because of its user-friendly features. There they can communicate, network, share, and many other activities.

And now we will see the advantages and disadvantages of social media.

Advantages of social media

When we look at the positive aspect of social media, We all know that social media has many advantages. The most important being a great device for education.

homeschooling

Homeschooling is a model of education or learning activities that are carried out outside the school area, either as a colleague or family or community where homeschooling itself is carried out. Another term that refers to homeschooling is home education, home-based learning, or independent schooling. Homeschooling is carried out in accordance with the abilities, needs, and potential of the students themselves. Many people define and define homeschooling, while according to Kak Seto Mulyadi as the Chairperson of the National Commission for Children, the emergence of homeschooling as an alternative needs to be proven successful as a competition appeal process through the non-formal system.
Homeschooling is usually designed in such a way so that children feel happy, comfortable, and feel free from learning so that they can achieve optimal results.
The following are some of the Pros of Home Schooling:
• Give more independence and individual creativity and not classical learning.
• Providing opportunities to achieve individual competence as much as possible, so that it does not always have to be limited to comparing it with the highest, average, or even low ability.
• Protected from outside relationships that deviate from good morals, and also in terms of food is more preserved and guarantees vitamins and nutrients.
• Helping children develop to understand themselves and their roles in the real world with freedom of opinion, rejecting or agreeing on certain values ​​without having to feel afraid of being criticized by friends or having low values.
• More opportunities for individual independence and creativity that are not found in the general school model.
• Maximizing children’s potential from an early age, without having to follow the standard time set at school.
• Are more ready to engage in the real world because the learning process is based on daily activities around them.
• Students also further develop their talents.
• Ability to get along with parents and of different ages.
• The cost of education can adjust to the circumstances of the parents.
Apart from the advantages or advantages of homeschooling, the following are the disadvantages of homeschooling, namely:
• Children who learn to homeschool do not interact with many friends of the same age or peers from various social statuses which can provide experiences for living in society.
• School is a unique place of learning that can train children and compete in achieving the highest ability and success.
• Homeschooling also affects individual development.
• Homeschooling is also likely to make children less prepared to face mistakes and uncertainties in the social environment. It can also be called socializing in the outside world.
• Very Need also high involvement from parents.
• Socialization for age is relatively low because homeschooling is more relevant for cross-age socialization, while school children are more relevant for age-old socialization.
• There is a lack of ability to work in teams, organizations, and leadership.
• Children also do not get adequate facilities like formal schools in general.
• Parental protection can have a side effect of being unable to resolve unpredictable or unexpected social situations and problems.

Be Known! We Had Climate Crisis

source  picture by: Google

I’ve even seen some written form that says “Help our Climate Crisis”. I catch the meaning of this sentence which directly says that we need to help our nature. The pamphlet’s goal is to ask our help to save this planet to reduce extreme earth temperature.

In fact, a few years our planet’s weather condition is uncontrollable, sometimes hot then becomes hotter. From my explanation above we can call this as global warming then. Global warming is the increased level of earth temperature caused by the impact of the ‘greenhouse effect’. Greenhouse effect is the process when carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases collect in the atmosphere and absorb sunlight and solar radiation that have bounced off the earth’s surface. We know that the gases should escape from the atmosphere but unfortunately the gases trap then makes the planet get hotter. Another aspect that can cause global warming is the burning of fossil fuels to make electricity is the largest source of trapping pollution. So when we feel so hot even the weather is cool we can say that it causes global warming or when we go to the mountain we feel hot it might be the cause of global warming. Try to check your browser and get the information from National Geographic for example. This organization gives us information about our earth starting from nature’s appearance until the information about life around us.

The important thing we must know is what are the impacts of global warming? Indirectly people who live in the city will feel the impact because they live in the area full of air pollution and also coexist with the huge building which uses AC (air conditioner). AC is another thing that can cause global warming because of its energy. Look at the city then compare with the land in the village. On the other hand, the air in the village is still fresh because they still have the trees and there is no air pollution. Actually the impact of global warming is felt across the globe like in Antarctica that has been losing about 134 billion metric tons of ice per year since 2002 (source from Google). Scientists are always learning more about the impacts of global warming and the result is our planet will change if we do not do something to prevent or at least reduce global warming. What are the other impacts of global warming? There are:

  •         Melting glaciers and early snow melt.
  •         Rising sea levels will lead to coastal flooding.
  •         The burning of agriculture and fisheries.
  •         Disruption of animal habitat then makes them go extinct.
  •         Allergies, asthma, and infection disease outbreaks will become more common due to the higher levels of air pollution, and the spread conditions favorable to pathogens and mosquitoes.

After knowing what are the impacts of global warming then how does the government do to reduce the impact of global warming? They try to compose alternative energy to reduce the carbon pollution. Besides, law affirmation must be enforced for wild forest loggers. Not government should announce the importance of saving the environment by using energy wisely. Globally, they should convey and give understanding to the people of the dangers caused by global warming.

Do we have a role to reduce global warming? Yes we have. We must be aware that global warming is a serious problem in front of us because we have felt the impacts. First, save the electric energy and use it wisely. Second, reduce air pollution by using public transportation if we want to go somewhere. Third, don’t disturb the sustainability of the environment like cutting down the trees or hunting animals. The last is to invite your friends to save our planet because this is our planet where we are born, grew up, feel love, and be grateful for God’s blessings.

TRADITIONAL HEALTH

Assalamualaikum wr wb, hi readers, meet again with me luluk syifa, this time my writing assignment is about traditional health.  Ok, just get on with it.

 

TRADITIONAL HEALTH

 

When talking about health, health is the most important thing in our life, but we often forget it.  This is in accordance with what the Prophet Muhammad SAW said.  From Ibn Abbas said from Rasulullah ﷺ, “نِعْمَتَانِ مَغْبُونٌ فِيهِمَا كَثِيرٌ مِنَ النَّاسِ ، الصِّحَّةُ وَالْفَرَاغُ” which means: “Two pleasures that most people often forget and neglect.”  (HR. Bukhari).

In essence, health is more expensive than property, because in reality no one wants to be given gold as big as the Himalayas, but on the condition that a healthy eye must be gouged out.  Not only that, another proof that health favors are more expensive than property, is that someone who is sick will be willing to pay any amount for his treatment so he can recover from his illness.  (KESEHATAN HANYA MAHKOTA YANG HANYA BISA DILIHAT OLEH ORANG YANG SAKIT)

 

Every human being will definitely feel pain, which is a condition in which the metabolism in the body does not work properly.  However, even though an illness is an unpleasant condition, as Muslims, we don’t have to complain much, because complaining too much is part of the syaithan temptation.  And according to Firesta Farizal, M.Psi., A psychologist “The pain that is felt by each person is also different and cannot be measured from one person to another because the pain felt by each human being is subjective so that the resulting response will be different.  Different for everyone, ”

 

When we feel pain, surely we will try to treat the pain somehow. And what is often done when we feel pain is to take medicine.  The alternative that is most often used is drug stalls because many people are lazy to go to the doctor if the complaints that come are mild and prefer to take over-the-counter drugs, or commonly known as drug stalls.  Most of the OTC drugs only treat the symptoms of the disease that arise and do not cure the root of the disease.  These OTC drugs are usually marked with a green circle with a black outline on the package.

 

Side effects of chemical drugs,  The habit of taking over-the-counter medicine too often and for a long time will be very dangerous for the body.  Often times those who take over-the-counter drugs do not know the exact level or dose.  Not a few people have died due to an overdose, due to taking over-the-counter drugs in excessive doses.  Medicines that are taken continuously for minor illness can make you addicted to the drug.  If your body is used to it, when you are sick and you don’t take the same medicine, your body will feel uncomfortable.  Drugs taken mostly only treat symptoms, not a real disease.  The real cause of the disease will not go away until you consult a doctor.

 

Some of the risks of disease that will strike if you take the drug excessively include:

  • Kidney damage due to chemicals in drugs (hepatocyte).
  • Irritation of the digestive system (stomach upset, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea).
  • Changes in body temperature, blood pressure, pulse and heart rate.
  • Respiratory tract disorders (chest pain, shortness of breath).
  • The skin becomes hot and dry, or cold and clammy
  • Vomits blood or bloody stool.
  • In severe cases, can result in a coma and death.

 

But we as Indonesians who are famous for our diversity can produce various kinds of traditional medicines.  According to the Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (BPOM), Traditional Medicine (OT) is an ingredient or an  ingredient in the form of plants, animal parts, minerals, or a mixture of these ingredients that is used from generation to generation for treatment.  Traditional medicine is also often called Natural Medicine (OBA).

 

The virtues of herbal medicine include:

  1. Herbal medicine does not cause side effects, because it is made from natural and complex herbs.

Herbal remedies are very effective for diseases that are difficult to treat medically.

  1. Herbal medicine is curative, meaning that it is really healing because the treatment is at the source of the disease. Based on some research that has been done by experts, herbal medicine is very suitable for health problems, especially chronic and degenerative diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, rheumatism, asthma, the spread of cancer cells, tumors, and others.
  2. Herbal remedies are more affordable and easy to make because herbal medicine is a medicine that comes from nature itself, so the price tends to be cheaper than chemical drugs.
  3. Besides that, herbal medicines are also very easy to make, because in making herbal medicines you do not need to use sophisticated tools and technology.
  4. Usually, herbal medicines are processed by boiling, pounding, or mixing with other herbal ingredients with certain compositions.
  5. The main reason is due to the nature of traditional medicinal ingredients which are natural so that they can be digested by the body.

 

So, for readers, if they experience complaints of illness, don’t rush to take chemical drugs, but it would be better to use the spices around the house, such as:

 

🍁Turmeric, According to Professor Amir Soebandrio, Director of the Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology, the curcumin content in turmeric in general can improve body health.  “Because there are several studies that curcumin has effects such as reducing inflammation, some say the antioxidant effect, it is all in essence to improve health, endurance.

 

🍁 Ginger, you can use ginger to help maintain endurance.  “The ginger in  a compound in ginger can be used for anti-inflammatory or flu, inflammation, as well as some antioxidants in spices for body immunity,” said Professor Dodik Briawan, IPB community nutritionist.

Simply boil a few segments of ginger,  then drink the boiled water.  Apart from providing a warm effect, ginger can relieve coughs and relieve nasal congestion due to colds.

At first glance, I can share with you.  May be useful

TRASH

Trash is defined as solid, disalcum, undesirable, and discarded. We still think that garbage is a trivial item and throw it away as we please wherever we are. It is not uncommon for us to see road users casually throwing garbage in front of the merchandise without feeling troubled. On the side of the road is a pile of garbage that resembles a small mountain, scattered. In the trenches are also seen full of various kinds of garbage. From this incident it can be said that the community has not realized that the waste dumped has an impact on public health and cause squalo.

In ancient human life, garbage has not been a problem. But with the increasing population with fixed space, the more days the problem of garbage becomes bigger. This is evident from the changing modernization of life and the development of technology in which human activity is increasing. The more diverse activities, various types of waste produced, especially garbage coming from housing. In a sense this waste is produced by locals who carry out the disposal of the remains of the goods or products they have used. Waste consumption is waste produced by humans as users of goods.

In connection with human activities, the problem of waste will be related, both in terms of social, economic, and cultural. The health of a person or society is a social problem that is always related between the components that exist in society.

If it can be secured, waste will not be a potential effect on the environment. However, managed waste is not in a place that guarantees environmental safety. It has an impact on public health, the environment becomes rundown, and appeals to a variety of animals, such as flies and dogs, that can carry diseases. Potential health hazards that can be posed such as diarrhea, cholera, typhoid and fungi can spread quickly, because unmanaged garbage can mix with drinking water and spread disease viruses.

Liquid seepage garbage can enter the drainage or river and will pollute the water. Various organisms in the water, including fish, can die. More extreme, some aquatic species may vanish and result in changing biological aquatic ecosystems. Waste dumped into the water will produce organic acids and organic liquefied gases such as methane. In addition to smelling unpleasant, in high concentrations of gas (methane) this can explode. Surely it can harm the wider community.

It is not uncommon for existing garbage to fill the trenches around the house, causing flooding. The rainy season becomes an unpleasant season for the community, especially in dense settlements. The trenches are no longer able to drain water to the maximum, because it is blocked by piles of garbage. This resulted in unstoppable rainwater and the memory of the yard. Existing puddles carry an unpleasant smell, as well as kill the grasses in the yard and other open spaces.

When viewed in some areas, this incident of littering often occurs in urban areas. The question is whether the villagers are better behavior than the towns community?

The City Without Slums Program (Kotaku) is not only physically intervention but also social, economic and cultural / behavior of the community. Therefore, it is necessary to make efforts to prevent slums. Do not let then slum 0% (based on the current area) but instead appear new slums in other areas. Of course, tactical and sustainable measures are needed by all components of society for the sake of human survival.

It’s time for a change in waste management to be made. Waste management means the collection, transportation, processing, recycling, or disposal of waste. Good waste management can certainly reduce its negative impact on health, environment, and beauty, in addition to being a slum prevention.

District/city governments can take appropriate policies to deal with existing waste problems. The waste problem is a very urgent issue and should be a priority of the district / city government. The involvement and support of the whole community is certainly important for the realization of government programs. Government policy can be in the form of allocating existing waste in the district / city to a suitable place. The appropriate place should be far from the settlements of the inhabitants. The distance of the trash can with the source of clean water should also be a concern, because the garbage that is thrown away can contaminate the source of clean water. Various diseases can be caused by contaminated water sources, such as abdominal pain. And, last but not least, trash cans should be far from agricultural areas and plantations. Non-biodegradable decomposed waste can cause solid soil and cover the soil surface. Both of these reduce soil fertility so that agricultural areas are no longer able to produce well.

In addition, burying waste is one way in waste management. This method is very popular in all parts of the world. Burial of garbage can be carried out in abandoned soil, mining pits, or natural pits. A well-managed burial site produces a hegenis and inexpensive dump. Garbage burial avoids contact with the atmosphere layer. Directly exposed waste can cause unpleasant odors, unintractive landscapes and nests for different types of microorganisms and makrorganism causes and carriers of diseases.

Special organic waste can be used as an environmentally friendly organic fertilizer (biological processing). Biological substances can be plant substances, food waste or paper. One example of waste management using composting techniques is the Green Bin Program in Toronto, Canada. That is, household organic waste, such as kitchen waste and plant pieces, is collected in special bags for composting.

Changing existing organic waste can bring its own advantages. Fertilizers derived from organic waste can be used for personal purposes, even for sale. Organic fertilizer material is very easy to get, and this fertilizer is famously environmentally friendly. Non-organic waste such as bottles, and used cans can be used as useful things with a touch of art. With his creativity, people can create artificial flowers with plastic and used pipettes and use used cans for their pots. There are also many toys that can be made from non-organic waste such as cans and bottles, for example to make a toy-making car. In short we can turn existing garbage into items that have artistic value and even selling value.
