The Earth is not a trash can! Please don’t treat it like one.
Dear person driving the green sedan in front of me on the highway,
Tonight I was on my way to a sustainability event sponsored by the environmental non-profit associate board I serve on. I was driving along, listening to the radio, and minding my own business.
We were driving in the middle lane of the highway when your next action really stuck with me. You didn’t brake suddenly, or swerve into another lane endangering other drivers.
Instead, you rolled down your window and tossed some wrappers out onto the road, as if it were your own personal trash can. My jaw legitimately dropped and hung open for a good five minutes as a million questions ran through my mind.
How could you do that?
Why couldn’t you have just waited to where you were going to throw out those wrappers?
Who taught you that it was okay to litter?
