This is what I saw on the ground in the park while out for an evening stroll this week.
Yes, that is a discarded fast food wrapper and a used facial tissue on the ground! Right beside a garbage can that was almost empty!
Why can't people make the effort to actually drop their garbage into the can instead of on the ground beside it? Is it that difficult? I don't think so. I imagine even a child could do it.
While walking further along the path, I came across a lot more discarded trash. Can I suggest that if there is not a garbage can nearby that you stuff it in your pocket or hold it in your hand until you get to one?
It is totally inappropriate to litter our public parks and shared spaces, a thoughtless act conducted by thoughtless people!
*Stepping down off my soapbox*
In case you are wondering, yes, I did pick up the trash that I encountered and put it into the garbage bin on my way back to my car.
