To me, one of the most blatant, unacceptable forms of disrespect is litter. Littering is treating Earth, our home, like a garbage can. As a parent, you can understand how disrespectful it would be for your child to throw trash all over the floor in the home that you provide.
Essentially, “littering” is discarding waste in a place it doesn’t belong. There are designated places to put the trash to ensure it doesn’t get into places it shouldn’t be, like our oceans. In fact, ecomena.org states that about 1.9 BILLION TONS of litter ends up in our oceans every year. 1 ton = 2,000 pounds. This is more than our brains are capable of comprehending. There’s so much plastic waste that Tech Times article reveals to us that geologists from the University of Leicester discovered that plastic has become a part of the Earth’s crust.
Fast forward one thousand years in the future. The generations to come will study our period, and our footprint on the Earth is plastic. How devastating is this?
