El pajarito de plástico

pajarito.jpgMe encuentro viviendo por 7 meses en Vancouver, Canadá, y he estado pensando mucho en el rol que juegan en el equilibrio ecológico mundial los países industrializados ( o de primer mundo como le gusta a mi padre). El otro día me paso una anécdota que grafican mis conclusiones respecto a este tema.

El domingo 22 era el día mundial de la Tierra, y se organizaron diferentes actividades en la ciudad. El jardín botánico de mi universidad organizó una actividad especialmente orientada a la familia. A la entrada del hermoso jardín, había un mesón donde le regalaban a cada niño un pajarito de plástico, de esos que suenan como canto de pájaro cuando se soplan. Además, antifaces plásticos de colores también con motivos de pájaros. Los niños se emocionaron en los primeros minutos (Yo también gozaba cuando chico al recibir cualquier pequeñez en un mall o supermercado), y los sonidos emitidos por los pitos me llevaron incluso a mirar las copas de los árboles en busca del escurridizo pajarillo, sin saber que aquellos instrumentos de plástico reproducen con bastante calidad el trino.

Sin embargo, y como a los niños les dura poco el gusto por un juguete nuevo, muchos de los pájaros terminaron en los bolsillos, carteras de madres o en el basurero.

Me dio pena la situación. Me demostró que los países de mayores ingresos viven con niveles de consumo extremadamente altos. Todo pequeño acto que se haga implica la utilización de un elemento desechable, como el vaso de cartón en la cafetería, el anillo de plumavit que rodea al vaso para que el cliente no se queme, la tapita plástica sobre el vaso para que dosifique, la bolsita donde venía el azúcar, el palito de madera para revolver el café, la servilleta por si el café se da vuelta. Así, el pajarito de plástico viene a ser un chiste, una burla en el día de la tierra, un elemento cinematográfico en película de los hermanos Marx.

La historia terminó así: el 100 % de los pajaritos se encontraba en los vertederos de la ciudad una semana después.

A pesar de tener muy buenos programas de reciclaje, compostaje, reducción de emisiones, políticas públicas, etc, todavía no logran en estos países disminuir los niveles de consumo. Ni siquiera en el día de la tierra y celebrando el mismo.

En nuestro país, tenemos que imitar las buenas medidas que se han implementado en los países industrializados, pero el desarrollo sustentable será incompatible si tenemos ese nivel de consumo, que lamentablemente va en aumento en Chile, a costa de la explotación de nuestros recursos. Por lo menos tengamos en cuenta que, si alguien propone pajaritos de plástico para los niños en el día de tierra, preguntemos, en palabras gringas, are you kidding?

Yes, they keep getting introduced and people always replace and build-up huge collections of those accessories. This nifty device comes in handy as the traverse back with the wilderness to Caribbean resort. While some of the are great for saving a little bit of time, and achieving information ready on my small desktop instead of needing to work with an internet window to navigate and find that information, it doesn't necessarily have to be useful though, there are many such as the HAL 9000 gadget, which is just a button you push, and plays quotes from the 2001 film.
