LETTER: Just a small effort keeps things clean

If my memory serves me correctly it was in the news in the paper and on TV, and the saying was ‘go green, get clean’ and everyone was on the bandwagon at that time.

Well I guess something must have fallen by the wayside. For that is where you see all the garage now, everything from blue bags to Big Mac cartons and DQ wrappers and Tim cups at the exit and entrance to the 104 as well as our street and in parking lots.

So just what is the answer to this? I would say put a deposit on takeout cups and wrappers and that may stop some of it, for along our highway from New Glasgow to Dartmouth this past week there was enough garage to fill two garage trucks. Now I ask you, is that what ‘go green get clean’ was supposed to be? Well if it is they sure better think again, for we have the most beautiful province in Canada, so why do people not want to keep that way?

It only takes a small garage bag in a car or truck to put one’s garage in and put it in a garbage can outside of the store – a very easy thing to do. We do and so do some of our friends and we feel good about doing it. So please think twice before throwing anything out your car or truck window. Please keep our streets and highways clean. Thank you and think green and stay green, for it keep our province beautiful.
