Over the years on my photography adventures, I have collected a small sum of photos featuring litter that I have found among nature. It began with only pop cans, but now other pieces of trash have been included in this growing collection of mine.
You would think that in 2017, littering would be a thing of the past with all of the attention given to the importance of recycling. However, I still find garbage every time I walk in the woods. It’s disgusting. Despite the fact that trash, compost, and recycle bins are in all public places, people still don’t seem to always use them. Additionally, often when people do recycle, they put their items in the wrong bin, which isn’t helpful either.
The concept of reading a label and putting an item in the appropriate bin isn’t rocket science. I hope people smarten up sooner rather than later.
