What are the benefits of littering?
It's for an argumentative essay, and I need to showcase both sides.
Um, it's good because there isn't always a bin around? I don't really know, I don't litter :I
If the item in question is compostable, littering will actually help the earth.
It's easier. That's kinda the only argument. Then illustrate that with as many examples as possible.
Nature always takes care of everything so we should chuck garbage into the forests :]
As for the other side, we need to be responsible for the planet and how we leave it for our coming generations :/
Because, I believe everything in a sense is biodegradable. Even plastic. Leave a milk jug outside for a few months in the sun, and it will degrade into nothing. Some things just take waaaaaaaaaaaaay longer to degrade than others.
Thank you, everyone. This will surely help me :D
As a member of both The Wilderness Society and The Sierra Club, I can't think of any.
Allows for cheap disposal of garbage, let's people have greater access to tossed goods without trouble, let's homeless people build cool shelters out of wood and tin! :P
*Can be easier than locating a proper receptacle
*Saves potential trashpickers the trouble and/or humiliation of having to root through a garbage can to get to the item in question
*Promotes exercise in people who are paid to pick up garbage
*Depending on the item in question, may give local birds novel new nesting material
*Keeps biodegradable garbage from further cluttering dumps
You'd be surprised what cool stuff I find in my neighborhood going on walks. Last week I found a My Little Pony (though it still looked a little like it had been almost run over), and today I found a tiny Transformer helicopter. I save most of the stuff I run into on my walks in hopes of making something cool out of it, but so far I have more raw materials than actual projects. Meh.
