Olden time_s people lived in accord with the nature. Later, when the humanity have created powerful machines, various chemical materials, learned to govern the nuclear energy, their appeared lots of ecological problems. The most important elements of our surroundings – air, water and soil are more and more polluted.

The number of people is increasing very fast in the world nowadays. The matter is that they need more and more working places, food, clothes, cars, planes. that_s why the pollution oof the nature increases.

The amount rubbish formed 40 milliard tones in the world in 1970, but it is prognoses that this number can reach even 1000 milliard tones in 2000.

For example, every inhabitant of the USA throws out about 82 kg of paper, about 250 tins, 390 bottles -total about 1 tone of various unnecessary things during the year. Can_t they be recycled?

Some of the countries want to export all kinds of rubbish to others, more backward countries. IIs it a right decision? We all live in the same planet.

Polluted nature has a negative influence not only for the people_s health, but for the inheritance of the civilisations culture, too. The famous architectural buildings in all the wworld suffered from the acid rain more during the last 30 years, than during 300 years up to this.

We have presented just several facts of our polluted environment. Now we have to decide how we can clean our planet.

Pollution is endangering our survival. We know that robbery means taking things away from other people. But robbery isn_t just stealing money or other things. Pollution is also robbery.

When you think about murder, do you think of a bank robber shooting a policeman? This is indeed murder. Sometimes murder is quick, but other times the killer prefers to torture his victim until he dies. Pollution murders in that way.

We can_t always count on someone else to figure out a way to ssolve the problem. We can start by cleaning up the polluted surrounding in our neighbour- hood!

Litter just doesn_t appear—it is the result of careless attitudes and improper waste handling. Is there anything you can do? Knowing more about litter and where it comes from is a good place to start.

Why People Litter???

Research by Keep America Beautiful, Inc., has found that people litter because:

• They feel no sense of ownership, even though areas such as parks and beaches are public property.

• TThey believe someone else—a park maintenance or highway worker— will pick up after them.

• Litter already has accumulated.

“Litter-Known” Facts

Motorists and pedestrians are often blamed for litter. There are actually seven primary sources:

Household trash handling and its placement at the curb for collection.

Dumpsters used by businesses.

Loading docks.

Construction and demolition sites.

Trucks with uncovered loads.



Litter is blown about by wind and traffic or carried by water. It moves until trapped by a curb, building or fence. Once litter has accumulated, it invites people to thoughtlessly add more.

What Can I Do?

• Set an example for others, especially children, by NOT littering.

• Carry a litterbag in your car.

• Make sure trash cans have lids that can be securely fastened. If you have curbside trash collection, don’t put out loose trash in boxes.

Tie papers in a bundle before placing them in a curbside recycling bin.

If you own a business, check dumpsters daily to see that top and side doors are closed.

• If you or a member of your family is involved in a civic group, scouting, or recreational sports program, encourage the group to “adopt” a spot in your town or neighborhood and maintain it on a regular basis.

Report areas where people have illegally dumped garbage aand debris to your local highway, public works, sanitation or conservation office, and ask that the material be removed. Volunteer to help organize a cleanup of the area.

• Ask the organizers of a festival, fair or other outdoor event in your community to make it a “litter-free” event. This can be done by giving out litterbags at entrances and making sure that everyone who attends knows that it is a “litter-free” day. Affiliates of Keep America Beautiful have organized litter-free concerts, fairs, and minor league baseball games.

• Cover open loads on all trucks.

• Ask marina operators if your Boy or Girl Scout troop or civic group can pass out litterbags to boaters. Public boat ramps also are good spots to give away litterbags.

• If you smoke, use a portable ashtray to dispose of cigarette butts.

The more than 500 affiliates of Keep America Beautiful are improving the looks, vitality and economic integrity of their communities by beautifying their surroundings in ways that make a huge difference. Neighborhoods that are beautiful to look at are beautiful to live in, to work in and to visit.

Pruning and planting trees and flowers, landscaping, graffiti abatement, and cleanups are all beautification initiatives tthat have an immediate positive effect on how a neighborhood is perceived. People and businesses move in and stay in, and tourism flourishes.

Keeping our world beautiful is everyone_s job.
