Happy Earth Day

We can make many excuses why it is a challenge for us to REduce REuse or REcycle... but we should all try to at least make some small changes. May I suggest one of the simplest ways to look after our planet...?

...like putting our garbage in a trash can rather than on the ground?!?!?!?!

I do NOT understand people that litter. I truly do not get it. The above is some of the 'nicer' garbage I took pictures of yesterday at my lunch hour. This is some of the stuff I saw but did not take pictures of: A dirty kleenex, old runners, diapers...

DIAPERS??? Are you kidding me??? (ummm... who ever you are that did this... does the term "Redneck" mean anything to you???)

Well...I could go on and on...but let me get back to the "happy" part of Earth day...

So have a most Happy Earth Day ~ and please try to do your part today! :)

Garbage thrown away like that makes my blood boil! Yes...I have seen my fair share of used diapers left in a park, picnic site or at the side of the road! What are these people thinking???
Happy Earth Day!

Yeah, litter is annoying. At least the kleenex will easily deteriorate - so there's our litter silver lining.

Drives me bonkers too... the people that litter. I'd love to collect all that those people dump "where ever" and leave it on their front porch! Happy Earth day to you too!

Happy Earth Day Catherine! DIAPERS! ACK! That little convenience for busy moms is wonderful, but oh the mess they've created for Mother Earth! I've read about the dilemma they pose in our landfills. Amazing. While I was lucky enough to enjoy the ease they brought to my life, I just don't understand (as you stated) people who just toss them anywhere! Most of them DON'T DEGRADE well (if at all) and talk about UGLY to see! Ok, you've got me going this morning! LOL xxxVicki

Happy Earth Day...There is no excuse for throwing garbage away like thatl recycling is so easy to do and really does help...Hope you have a happy day.

Happy Earth Day to you!

I didn't know there were Rednecks in Canada too! Littering is just a plain lack of respect and sheer laziness and I don't understand it. Cigarette butts thrown out of car windows are another thing that drives me bonkers.

Happy Earth Day to you too! I don't quite get that messy littering stuff either...if it wasn't there when you came, don't leave it there either!

Connie said...

Littering is just plain laziness and it annoys me to no end! If you wouldn't throw it on your livingroom floor at home, then why would you throw it on the ground?

Happy Earth Day to you too!

Happy Belated Earth Day!! My dashboard got clobbered yesterday by someone I follow that posted more than 30 posts at one time....Needless to say, it was a lot to sort through and I missed posts like yours...At any rate, you've made some good points about how people should just take a minute to do the right thing like clean up after themselves!! I don't get how people can just toss out things with no regard...Drives me crazy!!!! But it does seem that these days there are more people who care than don't--Lets hope that trend continues to catch on!! Have a wonderful weekend!! :-)))

Congratulation on this post! Happy Earth Day to you too! I too cannot understand those who use to leave garbage behind themselves where ever they are. I am wondering if they behave the same way in their homes, gardens...in their own properties?!? It also makes me crazy when I see someone throwing trash out the car window. I am afraid they don't care for any appeal of not doing that any more.

And those drivers who throw litter out of the car window as they go along!

My friend had her come-uppance with this though - she threw her cigarette end out of the window, and failed to notice that it had blown right back in again, until she realised that the back seat was alight......

Litterers do make me angery! I take a trash bag on walks to pick it up along the way - shouldn't have to! Have a great weekend!
