Litter In Houston Bayous—Crying Indian Commerical Asks Us Not To Live Like Pigs As Our Political And Corporate Leaders Would Like Us To Live

Above is a picture I took  a few days ago of a tree that fell into Buffalo Bayou not far from Downtown Houston.

This fallen tree collected a great degree of  organic debris and litter.

The organic debris is a fact of existence. But the litter is stuff that people decided to discard in an inappropriate manner.

You can see that a great deal of litter has been collected here as well.

Below is a picture that I took a few months ago of where White Oak Bayou flows into Buffalo Bayou in Downtown Houston.

There is also a great deal of litter in this picture.

It is up to the individual to decide if to litter or not.

I don’t know why people can’t respect themselves by respecting the world they live in each day and by seeing that we all share this interconnected world.

This is an issue in Houston and in all places.

Below is the famous anti-littering public service commercial  from the early 1970’s featuring the Indian in the canoe.

While it should not be forgotten that big corporations cause most pollution, we all also have the choice not to litter.

We must also recall that work of holding corporations accountable and addressing climate change is up to each of us.

Of course our leaders and our big corporations would let us live like pigs and treat each other like dirt.

It is up to each of us to live in a way that makes clear that we each merit more than our political and corporate leaders would offer us.
