People that litter are people that are lazy or don’t want to get up, but every little piece of trash, it all matters. It’s bad for all living things. It matters to some people that are trying to keep their Environment clean. Sometimes if one person starts to do it other people start to do it. People may be intelligent but we aren’t wise yet if we keep littering.
