Some environmental activities, like cleaning up beaches, do in fact require a lot of bodies. Some, like global warming, can be addressed technologically, at least in the long-term.

Just tell them that they’re filthy & lazy! simple!

Sometimes we need to do that to make certain people realise things.

Or, go one step further like us in England. Get local authority to act as bin police & fine you when you get caught dumping on the hidden cameras in the bin-bags!!

My south american friends came to visit recently and were surprised by how much trash people toss in the streets. My supposedly well educated neighborhood provides us with huge, I mean HUGE trash cans for each house, but even with that, half the houses have overflowing bins with unflattened boxes that are perfectly recyclable, bottles of water with water still inside, you name it. How do you nicely tell these people that they are filthy and lazy?

If we could do it every 3 months, the world will definitely be a cleaner place 😀

I live on the beach in california. The filthy mexicans drive up and dump their trash all the time.

It’s great to see that some of them will actually make an effort to clean up their mess.

Everything lttle thing makes a difference. If only we could get people to just stop trashing our world.
