Litter destroys the environment. The environment we are living in! What good does litter do? Nothing! Littering is destroying our future. Litter makes us citizens look like we don’t care enough for our environment. Picking up garbage isn’t a hard job to do.
We are responsible for it. Nobody will clean up our mess. It’s our duty.
This is our planet we are living in and we should take precaution and take care of it. People don’t think about the side effects of litter and in the end we are the ones to suffer. Litter affects global warming and this is very harmful to us, to our surroundings. Litter decreases income. This means fewer jobs for everybody. Potential customers may avoid businesses that are near or surrounded by trashy areas.Hygiene is one of our top priorities.
Every day we take a shower to keep ourselves clean similar to us having to keep our planet clean. Lack of hygiene has so many consequences. It could cause a number of diseases.
We can cause a lot of flu’s for example; the swine flu or the bird flu. These flu’s are caused by not being hygienic and this has affected many people’s lives. It has killed many loved ones because of our laziness.
Do you really want to be the cause of others peoples death? I don’t think anyone would want to be in that sort of position. “Surveys have shown that 30-65% of trash found along roadways is the result of unintentional behavior” such as items blown from yards and vehicles, lost items, or debris leftover from accidents. While Litter is often easy to remove, keeping an area litter free can be costly and time consuming. It’s important to show that we as citizens care about our environment and don’t treat it like sewage.Littering is an important environmental issue.
“It is amazing that 94% of people identify litter as a major environmental problem and yet people still litter”. Carelessly discarded garbage affects every member of society: it causes harm to people, animals, damages our waterways, costs us money and suggests that we do not care for our environment. Fortunately, we can all do something to help prevent and reduce litter. For starters, set an example by not littering. Dispose of trash properly. Recycle any materials that can be recycled and dispose of the rest in a garbage can, keep a litter box in your car.
By doing so you are helping not only your environment but the cleaners who are 24/7 working hard just to keep your surroundings clean for you. Sure it provides a lot more jobs but why would you want to give someone a job of cleaning up your mess?One of our main problems is litter. Tourists wouldn’t visit a country if it was polluted. Tourists want to see beautiful sceneries and clean roads.
Trash in an area attracts vermin and bacteria. Litter can be hazardous to one’s own health as well. Broken glass and other sharp objects are dangerous when left in public places. This happening in many countries has affected their status, hence will lead to a really poor country.
The truth is, we all know about the problem. Now it’s time to act on it. Develop proper and responsible waste disposal habits; remember that you can make a difference by encouraging others to follow your example. When we dispose of our garbage properly, instead of polluting our environment, it does more than help our environment to look good – we all feel better about it as well.
