Here's the deal: Stop littering locallySeptember 3, 2019
To the editor:
I write this letter on Saturday, August 31. I stepped out my front door to walk down the street and noticed someone had parked their vehicle partially blocking my driveway. I went back inside to get a piece of paper and wrote a short letter to the owner to leave on their windshield thanking them for blocking my driveway. She was coming back to her vehicle as I was leaving the note. Her response was a very polite "Your welcome. I was only there a few minutes." Imagine my surprise when I came back and found the note wadded up and thrown in my front yard. So not knowing how to reach her, I wanted to publicly thank her for throwing her litter in my yard.
Here is a message for anyone concerned about our environment: "Don't preach about Green New Deals and plastic in the ocean. Let's get more local than that. Quit throwing your trash out along our streets and into property owners' yards. Keep a litter bag in your car and throw your trash out in a public garbage can or take it home with you and put it in your own trash."
If you don't litter, it won't end up in our rivers and oceans.
