Actions Need to be Taken to Solve Litter Issues
June 17, 2021
To the Editor:
The litter along our roadsides this spring is unsightly. It adversely affects our health. As plastic materials decompose, they break into tiny particles that find their way into our water supplies. Now, scientists conclude that the average person absorbs a credit card’s worth of plastic into his body— every year.
Be a good role model for children and grandchildren. Talk to the generation that will inherit this mess and make it clear to them that throwing garbage out of car windows is unacceptable and unhealthy. Go on family walks in your neighborhood collecting litter.
