Please Pick Up Your Fcking Trash

I left my home country in 2001 and lived overseas for 17 years, returning in 2018.

What I saw shocked me. It never used to be like this. The country lanes are now completely strewn with trash. People just toss their garbage out of car windows and don’t care. Driving down a country lane in my home county I was horrified to see that at any given moment, I could see trash. It was everywhere. This trash ends up in the soil, in the air and in the water. If it falls into rivers it ends up in the ocean, where it is eaten by animals as seen in the pictures.

Don’t even get me started on the festival picture. This trash gets cleared up by the site crews but the general attitude of purchase-consume-discard is rampant. A large sector of society just do not care. This is all wrong. And there are a lot of people who really do care. But why should we have to clear up after you?

Humans are doing a terrible job. Don’t forget, what you do to the environment you end up doing to yourself, because it ends up back in the food chain. We need to fix this now, or future generations are going to curse our memory as “those guys who destroyed the planet and left it for us to clear up.” Take action.

And if I see you tossing trash out of your car window, I’m reporting you… and I have dash cam. So don’t even think about it. I might be behind you.

    Somewhat true. Anywhere that ocean trash is involved is due to not saving said trash for burial on dry land. It was this bad near cities in the 50s. And in certain rivers and estuaries since the 1800s. Now, the problem is everywhere because the oceans are all connected and “dumping in water is cheaper than burial”. (I’ve read variations of that phrase in multiple histories of big cities and towns.)

    I want to help start a trend to clean up our mother Earth. I believe that if we make it a positive experience instead of threatening people into doing it, it would spread in a way that becomes more of a traditional way of living rather then a punnishment that brings feelings of negativity up when the it’s mentioned. If we advertise the positive aspects of maintain our Earth in more aspects then just not littering, for example, using biodegradable products, growing your own foods, not feeding the cooperate monster etc, I feel we could start a worldwide revolution to save mother Earth. And our future.
