Restoring the habit of cleaning one’s own surroundings
I hope that starting 2013, establishments and households, especially in Metro Manila, will take it upon themselves to clean their surroundings, even just their frontage, at the end of the day.
When I go out at night and early morning, I see a lot of litter on the streets. I think that if only people would be more civic-spirited, if only every business outlet and home would sweep their frontage every late afternoon or early morning, we’d have less garbage.
We’d have less street litter being carried by air and by human movement from one place to another until they end up clogging waterways.
