This Earth is NOT a Trash Can!

Sunday, August 25, 2013

Why do people think that it is okay to drop theirMcDonald's Happy Meals, Dunkin Donut's Coffees and Bud Lights on the side of a dirt road or on a hiking trail? Is it because no one is looking, and they can get away with it?

Listen to me, this earth is not your trash can! Pick up your trash!

New Hampshire, along with Ohio, Michigan, and others are "carry in, carry out" states. There are signs stating:

Thanks for helping keep our parks clean and green when you Carry In Carry Out!

There is nothing more frustrating for me than to pick up someone else's garbage. I do so because I love enjoying nature the way that it was meant to be. I often wonder if the same people who throw their trash to the side of the road or trail would do the same thing in their homes or on their own streets.

It may be easy to throw something out the window, and have it not clutter up a car, but littering is a disgusting habit to get into. Please take care of your trash!

Litter bug, litter bug, shame on you!
