littering: make a place untidy with trash or a large number of objects left lying about.
1.9 billion tons of trash ends up into the ocean
$11.9 billion is spend a year to clean up
60% of litter is cig butts
My question to you :
why would you spit gum out in the street or grass ? It kills birds everyday because they think it is bread. Why throw trash out the could possibly end up into the ocean? It kills sea animals everyday because they think objects are food and cant digest it,
