How do you explain 25 billion Styrofoam cups thrown away each year by Americans?
Is there a moral imperative to do something?
"This (green work) is a double responsibility... The claim that this type of stuff [protecting the environment] has nothing to do with Islam, is a claim based on ignorance...
These types of products we produce [Styrofoams, non-biodegradable items, etc.] are damaging to the environment and are harmful to the creation of Allah and there is no question that there is an Islamic responsibility to educate the people to better themselves."Islamic Scholar Yasir Qadhi on green living in conversation with Faraz Khan, www.ThinkAsGreen.com
