It's April 22nd, Happy Earth Day! Every day I walk with my dog Luna at Snake Den State Park in Johnston, and it makes me sad to see all of the trash lying around! There are cans and bottles and coffee cups and fast food bags all along the street and in the fields of the park. Way too many people treat this area as their own personal trash can, throwing all kinds of junk out of car windows.
So yesterday, while Luna and I were taking our daily walk, I brought along a bag and filled it up with cans. I should have brought a bigger bag because it filled up fast! There were so many bottles and cans that I ended up with an extra bin full of recycling this week.
It would be great if people could stop throwing their trash onto the streets and sidewalks and in other public spaces. Please, take it home with you and dispose of it properly, or find a trash can. We all have to live in this world together, let's keep it clean! Maybe take a few minutes today and clean up your street in honor of Earth Day!
