9/12/09 Heba Shaikh SPOILING THE BEAUTY OF OUR LANDS Do you really want to live in a world which is filled with litter? Wherever you go and all you see is filth, filth and filth? You can make a huge difference by picking up the litter you see, be it yours or someone else's. Litter destroys the environment. The environment we are living in! What good does litter do? Nothing! Littering is destroying our future. Litter makes us citizens look like we don't care enough for our environment. Picking up garbage isn't a hard job to do. We are responsible for it.
