Today’s English blog for beginner students is about litter.
It doesn’t matter how positive and correct you are, as others may treat the world as a rubbish tip. In other words (i.e.), they may be positive in their view point, but when it comes to ill-treating the rest of the world, they manage easily.
I took my granddaughter by foot down the road to her school. A plastic water bottle was crushed under a small black car’s tire (tyre), as it drove over it in the direction of the highway. Wondering why a large bottle was in the middle of the road saddened me. Plastic pollutes!
Litterbugs are selfish, ignorant, and messy people who couldn’t care a less about their actions which contribute to making the street ugly. It isn’t enough that litter attracts pests and rodents, but it can also cause accidents.
Litter can block and inhibit rain from going into drains. Imagine a banana skin thrown on the pavement. Someone could slip over it. Clearly, litterers are not prepared to respect others or be part of society.
I picked up the broken bottle from the curb and threw it into a close by trash basket. This was my good deed of the day!
