Year 2019 and we still throw garbage on floor.
We talk about change in the last days of every year, there are chances that we change too but there’s on constant that doesn’t change.
That is our habit of throwing garbage on the streets, why do we do that?
Do we casually throw banana peel or chips wrapper on our room’s floor? No, yes that’s right then why do we not practice this when we are out?
My mother used to carry a shopper with her whenever we used to go out because both I and my brother had a habit of munching on junk food while our mother used to shop that used to result in a lot of wrappers/litter. I am not saying we adapted this habit on the first day itself. I still remember how we used to throw juice packet after we finished it then our mother would make us walk back to that particular point, make us find that empty juice carton then make us pick it up from the ground and keep it in the shopper she brought from home. We’ve been into the business of going back and picking up the wrappers a couple of times then we understood it’s better to walk around with a shopper full of litter than going back to the point where we threw it and pick it up.
This is how you learn things, that was the day and till now I have like so many wrappers at the end of the day in my university bag or my hand bag.
As I walk through public places I see people throwing away the litter just like that. Without caring about the accident it may cause and about the pollution that’s increasing because of them throwing the garbage just like that.
Can we please bring this change in 2019?
