We were honored to visit Dr. Chun-Hsien Ho at Do Good House, where he shares some of his solutions to sea pollution. "I decided to first focus on plastic floats and polystyrene foam. These two have a huge impact on our marine ecology. If the wastes in the ocean can be turned into useful materials to counter global warming and environmental degradation, it would be a transformation from harming the planet to saving the planet." Dr. Ho gives us a tour of his artwork made from transforming marine waste. "Urban farming is most capable of digesting such marine wastes, which can be turned into installations for growing vegetables. As urban warming is very severe, I use these materials to create installations that require no watering to grow vegetables. When these plastic or polystyrene foam materials are fixed there, they stop getting into the environment. As they are products made from carbon derived from fossil fuels, scientifically our treatment is called carbon storage. Growing vegetables allows us to produce some foods in urban areas, so we can prepare ourselves to counter food shortages caused by environmental degradation. As we grow green vegetables, simultaneously, these green vegetables can carry out photosynthesis, which can actually help carbon reduction." All information concerning the scientific evidence of climate change and its solution is in Supreme Master Ching Hai’s Book, “From Crisis to Peace.” Free for download at: Crisis2Peace.org Dr. Ho has been invited to many schools to educate teachers and students on the concept of a sustainable, green lifestyle, as well as how to design edible landscapes. Dr. Ho also explains an effective composting method. Our many thanks to Dr. Chun-Hsien Ho for showing us his eco-friendly solutions, so that we, too, may use some of his brilliant techniques to better protect Mother Earth.
