ABC Wednesday #21: N

16 Oct

Just look at the numbers. They do not lie. Numbers don’t lie. We litter. We trash our world. It is the only one we have.

I took this picture in 2010 when I participated in the Coastal Cleanup program. I could attest to the cigarette butts. Each time I volunteer for a cleanup program, that’s the most item I collect. I thought people stopped smoking?

    I guess we (Humans) are just slobs.
    Those numbers are staggering.
    It seems some people just live in a giant ashtray!

    Those numbers certainly do NOT lie…too many cigarette butts lying around for sure. But we all NEED to take part in keeping our countries clean.

    I have no doubt that cigarette butts are the number one thing, sweeping my street will attest to that. I agree, as a Californian, I assume everyone I see smoking is a European, but alas, not true. Sad commentary on our world that littering is so prevalent.

    A horrible commentary on our society. People should be ashamed, and yet just today I watched someone throw things out of their car onto the street.
