Letter: Short walk generated a bag full of litter
Letter

Dear editor:

I am writing in response to Kyra Simone's Keeping it Green column ("Celebrate nature’s essential services this Earth Day," April 15) about cleaning up garbage around town.

I just finished a 45-minute walk down King Street and the Parliament Oak area and I ended up with a full bag of trash.

Here is an inventory of what I collected:

* Six dirty masks.

* A multitude of candy wrappers and granola bar packages.

* Four aluminum cans.

* Seven sanitizer wipes.

* Two plastic water bottles.

* I lost track of the bits of plastic I picked up.

* And the worst offender was discarded dog waste bags – knotted and tossed in the bushes.

Thanks for the article and the idea to get out and cleanup. The environmental column is a great part of the paper .
