See that plastic bottle of water? It's only one now, but come summer littered single-use plastic water bottles will abound. ...and to be completely frank, bottled water is one example of a littered item that is completely unnecessary. Of course, there are more problematic issues to bottled water than just the littered plastic bottle that could send me on a long winding tangent... instead, I'll recommend watching the documentary "Tapped" (it's available on Netflix) and grabbing a reusable water bottle.
It's always worth reminding ourselves that with our own conscious purchasing habits we have the power to change the system. If we all get together to make a change... that change is unstoppable.
