David Morris: Pick up your garbage
April 27, 2010
To the editor:
Did you enjoy your Sunday afternoon?
Close to 30 members of the Northwest Colorado Chapter of Parrot Heads spent theirs cleaning trash at Pebble Beach. When the project was completed, the group hauled away enough garbage to fill four pick-up trucks. That came as a bit of a shock considering the fact that the Parrot Heads cleaned up the same area just last summer.
Pebble Beach is a beautiful spot close to town. It is difficult to comprehend why people would enjoy spending time there but then leave all their garbage behind. And where did people get the idea that if they throw cans and bottles in the bushes it makes them go away?
I have learned that it is never too late to develop a conscience.
It's time for all of us to become to caretakers of the environment we live in.
