Litter makes the Earth Bitter

Litter makes the Earth Bitter

What is the point of your EDUCATION, if you still litter on STREETS,that to be ultimately picked up by an UNEDUCATED PERSON working?

The foremost attribute of these rainy days and  stormy weather is, it manifests purity, and it shows negativity departing with cold breeze solely knocking on the door. A long drive is considered as the ideal getaway in this weather.

Driving all the way,i see an arm appearing out of the car. Suddenly i perceive the garbage to be a plastic bottle, that staggers into the air and in a blink of an eye all that purity, sense of positivity vanished in vain. It actually grabs my attention towards the deplorable situation of dumping garbage on roads that are often thrown by the EDUCATED society, whereby cleaned by the UNEDUCATED people.

 

Isn’t Earth the only place we live in? Then why it is that people litter the place they dwell. Why do people let their pets defecate on streets rather in their own domain?

Be it leaving behind coffee cups, cigarette butts, discarded food wrappers and condiment bags in the side of the roads & typically carrying an attitude like “so what’s the harm, everyone does like that”. Does it  make us culturally civilized? Isn’t it our sense of social responsibility to keep the nation clean & green?

 

Every small piece of litter adds upto billions of garbage by the end of the year. Litter contain toxic substances that are just thrown anywhere leading to improper disposal. A small piece thrown unintentionally or not can cause drastic harm to the environment. Billions of money is spend just to clean up the litter that is heedlessly tossed out on the streets and other public spaces.

If we, the educated society prevails the same behaviour, then our education has no significance. The startup initiative of “Swachh Bharat Abhiyann – Swachh Bharat, Kushal Bharat” by PM Modi will no way have its purpose fulfilled that unless people  realize the need of Anti-Littering.

We love to criticize everything about our country but tend to forget that this very own country has given a lot many things in return to desire and achieve on. Anti Littering is something each of us can contribute towards on an individual level and make collective efforts. Unless we don’t make an effort, we shouldn’t expect any change.

 

Now it’s your choice whether you want to be responsible, ethical, conscientious, “stewards of environment” or candy wrapper litters……..

Spread the love
