Every day, I sort my rubbish.  I make sure I put as much as possible into the recycling bin, and I have an absolute horror of landfill sites.  All my garden waste goes into the green bin, to be collected and made into compost.  Glass, plastic, tins, cardboard, paper – all of it gets separated and sent off for reuse and recycling.  I even make sure any clothes I am getting rid of go either to a charity shop, or to a clothing-recycling bank where the fibres are put to a variety of good uses.

In other words, I hate waste and I want to try and leave the world a better place for future generations.

I even extend this to my own body.  I hope that whenever I shuffle off this mortal coil, I can change someone’s life for the better and that’s why I am signed up on the Organ Donor Register.  Any part of me that is left and in good enough condition will be freely given to some poor person who through accident, injury or ill health needs a new organ.  No-one likes to think about death, whether it is their own or that of a loved one, but that is exactly why we need to talk more about Organ Donation.  It’s not about death – it’s about life.  Ok, not so much for the donor (on the whole, you are dead…though where some organs like kidneys are concerned that doesn’t have to be the case!) but it will mean life for someone else.  The child who will still have a Mummy thanks to your liver.  The father who will still have a son thanks to your heart.  The grandparent able to watch their grandchild grow into a fine person thanks to the cornea transplant that saved their sight.  In a way, you could even look at it as a way for you to carry on living beyond your own death – and to my mind, it’s certainly better than being worm-food or a small pile of ashes.

Somewhere deep inside all of us, we want to be considered a hero.  We want to be a life-saver.  If you came across someone bleeding to death, and applied pressure to their wound until the paramedics arrived to save that person’s life, you would get the enormous satisfaction of knowing someone out there was walking around alive and well, who might otherwise be dead.  So why not make that difference to more than one person, and give your family the comfort that even after you aren’t with them, another family somewhere has been kept whole?

Please, for the sake of humanity, your family, their families – make sure you are a member of the Organ Donor Register.
