Selvi (ASRI Teens) Understanding Covid-19

Hallo, nama saya Selvi Vebbiani. Saya bergabung di ASRI Teens sejak 2016, saat saya berusia 11 tahun. Materi yang paling saya sukai di ASRI Teens adalah saat Mbak Etty (guru) menjelaskan tentang 4R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot/Compost), yaitu bagaimana cara mengurangi sampah plastik, menggunakan kembali suatu barang lebih dari sekali, mendaur ulang sampah, dan membuat kompos dari bahan-bahan organik. Melalui kegiatan ASRI Teens inilah saya lebih sadar untuk terus menjaga lingkungan yang memiliki dampak baik bagi kesehatan kita (manusia) dan kesehatan bumi. Kegiatan ASRI Teens ini sangat banyak mengubah kehidupan dan kebiasaan saya. Jujur saja, sebelum ikut ASRI Teens, saya sering membuang sampah sembarangan, belanja menggunakan kantong plastik, dan jajan es menggunakan kemasan kantong plastik. Setelah belajar di ASRI Teens dengan Mbak Etty tentang bahaya sampah plastik, ‘deg’, saya langsung merasa bersalah karena betapa banyak plastik yang saya gunakan dan buang begitu saja. Jadi, saya pun memutuskan untuk mengambil langkah nyata menjaga lingkungan dengan cara tidak membuang sampah sembarangan, menggunakan tas belanja, membawa botol minum sendiri dan tanpa memakai sedotan plastik.

Anak Muda Kayong Utara - ASRI Teens Menjaga Lingkungan

When the Covid-19 pandemic started and one Sukadana resident was confirmed positive, I was both sad and scared. I felt sad because I could not do my usual activities, and many activities had to be canceled including ASRI Teens. I also felt afraid because I didn't want to contract Covid-19. Now that it has been more than six months since the pandemic hit the world, many things have changed such as schools becoming online learning, and the difficulty of doing activities outside the home. Even so, I still feel happy because this pandemic makes air pollution and the environment less. The lesson from the Covid-19 situation that I can take is that we must always maintain our own health and hygiene. The benefits are not only for ourselves, but also for others. I hope that Covid-19 will soon pass, people can return to their activities, and the Indonesian economy can run better.
