LETTER: Littering is a Reflection of the Litterer

Campbell Patch encourages the Campbell community to share its voice, opinion and thoughts through letters to the editor.

Campbell Patch uploaded this photo this morning of a bottle of Gatorade on this tree, just a few feet from the nearest garbage can.

Facebook readers shared their viewpoints on the matter and one, Heather Malmisura had this to say.

I'll never understand littering. I mean, really? You couldn't hold onto that bottle until you got to a garbage can? (they're everywhere) or until you got to your car?

And don't get me started on people who throw crap out of their car windows.

There is really never an excuse to litter. I hope that the idiot who did this sees your post and realized what an ignorant piece of...wait for it...garbage, they are.

Well, I hope that someone was able to remove it to it's proper place. While I believe that the problem begins with the litterbug, I also think that everyone should chip in and clean up when they observe this type of thing. A few minutes out of our busy lives are worth it to make the world a better place! ( Corny, but true) *** Los Gatos Creek clean up day is Saturday 4/14/12 *** *** 9:30 to 11:30 am at Campbell park *** *** e-mail to jordan.eldridge@asm.ca.gov for more info and to sign up ! *** Thanks - Steve A.
