One of the things that really bugs me is the amount of Coffee Cup/ Drink litter anyplace. This shot was taken at Home Depot in Encinitas. This is a typical sight not only at Home Depot, but in any parking lot.
To me not only is this unsightly, but it’s rude and low class. Would you do this at your friends house? The cost of litter pickup is not just about landfills and storm drains. We as consumers, pay more for products, because companies like Home Depot have to pay the staff/company to clean up the parking lot. Everybody complains about the high price of food and gas, but the reality is all prices are higher due to a lack of social responsibility.
I just gotta Tell You: This is From Sustainability is Sexy
What Can You Do?
