Did you know?
Why is litter bad?
Litter is bad because it harms the environment. When litter is thrown on the ground or in bodies of water, it can take years to decompose, especially if it is made of plastic. This means that litter can pollute the environment for a long time, leading to a range of environmental issues. Litter can contaminate water sources, killing aquatic life and harm animals that consume the polluted water. It can also impact soil health and lead to erosion, which can affect crop yields and reduce the quality of the soil.
