Personal Ethics

Personal ethics is valuable in making positive decisions. In many situations we see that the younger generations' decisions are harming them due to few moral values. Through normative ethics we discover what makes our actions right or wrong. For example, if a person is driving and throws trash out of the window, we know that morally and ethically it is wrong. Not only is the trash polluting the environment, but it is also a hazard to other drivers on the road. An individual's upbringing can discourage some bad habits in our adult life. However, that is why it's wonderful to see organizations giving incentives to employees for making the right choices in protecting the environment. Many businesses now are using fuel efficient cars to save on gas and to be active in "going green". This is a big accomplishment. People respond better when money is an incentive even if we have to spend a little to save a little. Giving incentives for employees who purchase eco-friendly vehicles is an absolute plus from an economic perspective. Explain
