Searching in the water


I would be so glad if I could write this post about a beautiful swan searching roots, tubers and leaves of aquatic and submerged plants in the lake. Unfortunately this post is more about littering than about the beautiful swan below.

Each living being in the world is curious, so you can be sure if you litter, animals will find the rubbish and eat it or get injured by it.

Everyone knows that littering is wrong. Then why do people litter? Why don’t they feel responsible for public areas like streets and parks? The more they litter, the more it becomes a habit, and the worse the community looks. Once litter starts to pile up, people feel even less responsible for adding to the litter. If an area is clean, people are less likely to litter. It’s so easy to keep our environment clean. Just put the litter in your pocket until you find a recycling container or trash can. And if you want to do more, then pick up one piece of litter every day. That’s 365 less pieces of litter in a year on the streets, in the parks, and around the schools thanks to you. Imagine if everyone picked up just one piece!

  1. Very important topic! Children must be taught by parents and teachers how precious nature is. Governments on all levels must supervise streets, parks, public places and punish people who litter.

    • Unfortunately it’s difficult to catch those who are littering and punish them. There can’t be a policeman or a public area supervisor in every public places. We have to teach children and show them a good example, so future generations maybe won’t litter. My mother said always the same when I was a child. But today I can see people in my age who are littering, so my generation failed. I’m not so optimistic to think that future generations will manage it. But I hope they will!
