Littering from vehicles

Published November 11, 2017

THROWING out trash through windows of our vehicles has become very common. One can easily witness this daily. Littering is a combination of laziness and ignorance. We fail to realise that it causes problems like contamination and pollutes the environment.

The people should stop this practice and also discourage those who do so. Not only that, pick up trash when you see it.

This may be a bit frustrating , but it might encourage someone else to follow your example.
