The photograph displays a drainpipe, a plastic bottle, and other trash. The planet is littered with rubbish, with 2.12 billion tonnes thrown yearly. Why are we boosting it? Our careless littering is endangering many species and harming ecosystems. Why are we causing harm to nature and animals? We must exercise caution to protect our natural green spaces. Otherwise, the planet will change from green to grey. What can we do to preserve our green spaces? We can avoid littering, discourage others from littering, and adequately separate our litter.
