Let’s face it; we have all done it at one point or another. We walk down the street, see a piece of trash and shamelessly walk by it, not giving it a second thought. We go on with our day buying a couple coffees or water bottles, throwing them out and never understanding where these items end up
Why don't we seem to care more about this. Perhaps it is due to the fact that we don't actually see it. Out of sight, Out of mind right
Out of sight, Out of mind right
What if we looked at litter it in a different way?
What if I told you that the piece of plastic you saw on the street and decided not to pick up made its way to the ocean was eaten by a fish that we then catch and sell back to you to serve as your dinner. Sadly this is becoming more and more of a reality
So while there are many things that are out of our control these days, there are simple things that we can do every day without changing our routine in order to create a better environment for all
All of these are simple items that perhaps you think are small but they do in fact have a major impact And remember, these little things that we do for our community are creating a better place for everyone around it and also sets a positive example for others to follow. by Liz Ewing.
