For the love of god, please stop the littering! It is really out of control by me.
I am wanting to start a campaign in my community about it but no idea where to start. Yes they have volunteers who are kind enough to pick up trash on the side of the road. But the core issue is that people are too lazy to take their trash out.
I see entire tied up garbage bags just tossed in the ditch. Even worse, I see trash OUTSIDE a garbage bin that they didn’t quite get the aim right. And then what happens? The wind blows that piece of wrapper away and it gets stuck in a tree. Then people see that bit of wrapper and think it is okay to leave their trash out. Or, I don’t even know what goes inside people’s minds when they think “I will just throw this out my car window.” NO! DON’T DO IT! JUST DON’T!
Not only is it bad for our planet, but I am tired of looking at trash. For nothing else, don’t do it for the aesthetics. That is a more shallow reason, of course, but it is a valid reason none of the less. Do you want to stare at trash every time you drive to work? Me neither! So don’t do it! Just keep it in your car until you get to work and throw it out at work. Or keep a trash bag in your car if you know you’re in your car a lot so you can pick it up later. It’s not rocket science. It’s really not. Trash goes in the trash bin. See….it’s simple.
Just because you are tired is no reason to throw trash on the ground. So let’s agree with Batman, let’s make every day Earth day. Be a superhero and don’t litter! Seriously!
