Seeing how there is plastic laying a stray on the road, cardboard boxes in ditches makes me wonder who cleans this up. (besides people who are FORCED to) . How is all this trash good for the environment. Then I remembered! On April 20, 1970, a day is designated to help the world. Of course, it’s Earth day! More than 100 billion pieces of trash are dumped places each year in u.s alone. The U.S. buried or burned more than 166 million tons of resources –for example, paper, plastic, metals, glass and organic materials in landfills and incinerators last year. This really hurts our economy and how we live. The smoke isn’t good for the atmosphere and other like our lungs. Earth day is so important but not well known, therefore no one cleans the earth as good as they should. The earth needs our help. So let’s get out of our houses and help preserve our earth.
