Don't Litter

Do you litter?  I don't.  Littering is bad for the environment and you!  So why litter?  I don't see any reason why you should!

If you just dump garbage everywhere, it will be all over the place.  Golf balls take 100 to 1000 years to decompose, wow!  Also, litter can cause water pollution.  Instead, put your garbage in garbage cans or recycle if you can.  So why litter if you can put it where it belongs?

If you litter, it can kill some animals.  If you dump garbage in the ocean, a leatherback sea turtle might mistake it for a jelly fish and eat it.  Parts of cigarettes have been found in the stomachs of birds, fish, and whales.  Some other animals might try to eat it too.  So you can see, litter is very dangerous to animals.

Littering is also against the law.  You can get a fine ranging from $100 to $1000.  It depends on how much litter is already there and where you are.  In some places there are signs that remind you to not litter.  I think it's better if you don't litter.

So now do you think it's right to litter?  It pollutes the environment, it kills animals, and you have to pay a lot of money if you do!  There are no reasons to litter.  There should be no littering at all!  So, agree with me and don't litter.
