Transcript of Earth Day Project

Our project is very important because litter harms the environment, especially plastic (it poisons wildlife, making it extremely dangerous). When we went there, there was quite a bit of trash. If we hadn't done it, the trash would have still been there and it would begin to collect (Did you know: Over 51 billion pieces of litter land on U.S. roadways each year). What we did is beneficial to Mother Nature because we picked up the litter that causes many environmental problems.

Fun Fact: Aluminum cans (which we found today)
take 200-500 years to decompose. Earth Day Project Reflection
(Sneha Senthilkumar) Before starting this project, I was really worried about how much litter we would actually find. Town of Cary maintains their parks and public areas very well, so there is usually barley any trash at all. Doing the actual clean up was a lot of fun (as you can see by our movie), and it made me feel good knowing that what I was doing was going to help our planet's future. While we were cleaning, we made sure that people were aware that Earth Day is everyday! Even though there are many punishments for a litterer, but I think that we should begin to be more strict about that. Also, our public places need to have more trash and recycling bins. When we were walking down the trail, we only came across 1 or 2 bins (and none of them happened to be for recycling). If I was managing the parks, I would put that at the top of my list of priorities. My Opinion about the Project
(Marissa Koshy) Before starting the project, I was worried that we would find any trash since towns maintain their parks well. During the project my opinion totally changed and I was enjoying the project as it was shown in the movie. It felt good to know that I was supporting Mother Nature. I'm really thankful that we decided to see this project because we got to see the problem and also discover the solution. When we were finding trash one of them was a full Gatorade bottle which sums the problem in a nutshell. Many people are too lazy to throw/recycle their things. Seeing this I proposed that towns should include more waste and recycling bins for the community. Earth Day Reflection
Tsion Coulter Before the project I really never paid attention to litter around me when I was outside, and I really did not care. However, during the project and after the project I cared more about what is around me and helping our Mother Earth be cleaner. While we were cleaning I noticed that most of the trash we picked up was tissues; they are small, but every bit of trash adds up to a big problem. In the future I would like to push for the enforcement of litter laws. If the punishment were harsher and if people got in trouble for littering more often, then maybe people would stop throwing things away on our highways, parks, and greenways.
