- To be safe for fish, 1 ounce of acrylic house paint needs to be diluted with 10,000 ounces of water
- The Average American produces 4.6 pounds of trash a day.
- Fast Food Waste is 33% of all Litter.
Today, I couldn’t pick up trash, had my hands full walking up to the cleaners to recycle some hangers. (1 Mile) Thought I would share some interesting photos.
This was a bag that flew out of the back of a Truck (see right):
These construction/painting people do not tie down anything in the back of their cars, so everything flies out. This bag is a strainer/mesh bag with paint (wet) on it. So that means the toxins in the paint will wind up in our water, our oceans, killing you and marine life.
It is amazing how much construction trash is on the road. Personally I think that all people who own a truck should have to pick up litter every day for a month! That will teach them to tie down the trash in the back of their trucks!
This particular area constantly has fast food wrappers. These are from Brett BBQ across the street. I know Oakland passed a law about fast food wrappers, Santa Monica is requiring recyclable take out containers, but the Reality is PEOPLE SHOULD LEARN TO PICK UP THEIR OWN LITTER.
You know it’s not happening, walk by any school and note the amazing amount of litter on the school grounds. I watch the Mom’s do the pickup after school and it’s shocking the amount of trash that is left behind on the curb. Obviously they are not training their kids to pick up trash!
