There is Garbage Everywhere
- Litter on streets
- Open garbage dumped in piles at regular intervals
- Rodents visibly running around. (Remember the Plague at Surat?)
- Stray dogs all around the garbage
- Cows eating at the garbage dumps and dying plastic bags lining their intestines
- Open sewers
- Urinating men
- Segregate. It gets easy.
- Say no to plastic bags in shops – you have to change your habit for this. Carry a bag with you always.
- Ensure the shop you go to, especially the street side smaller ones, have a bin.
- Chide the shop owner if there is litter anywhere around his shop
- Join your friends to adopt a small tiny stretch of common area near your residence.
