It’s sad to see such an overwhelming amount of trash and neglected items strewn about in the alley ways of urban infrastructures. Why don’t we take the responsibility to clean up after ourselves? Not only does it affect wildlife, but it affects YOU! Yes, you, human. It baffles me that people often take themselves out of the equations when it comes to environmentalism and think that if you can’t see it that its not your problem and you won’t be affected by it. We are part of living system of interconnected parts, a.k.a. an ecosystem! When we don’t take care of the Earth, our HOME, then we in turn are not taking care of ourselves.
The consequences of neglectful waste disposal and disregard of sustainable practices do not just affect the environment they affect you!! So don’t take yourself out of this equation. When you clean up trash, when you reduce, reuse, and recycle, and partake in the multitude of simple sustainable practices you are benefiting the human species along with all of the other beings (plant and animal) on this planet.
