On my walk.... by louannwarren

On my walk....

A troubling side effect of disposable masks and gloves is the way people just throw them on the ground. Many states have steep penalties in place for improper disposal of plastic, Massachusetts has the highest fine, $5,000. This mask was on one of the streets I walk on, just a quiet residential street. I was actually surprised to see it. 😢
I've only seen one on my walks in the neighborhood and none when I venture out to shop (which is not often). Unfortunately, I'm not surprised to see folks not doing the right thing...sigh....

See that often here, too, in parking lots. Out of the store - onto the ground. Irritates me no end! Your picture is a definite sign of today.

It’s awful seeing them plus unlike ordinary litter you wouldn’t dream of picking it up & putting it in the bin.

A sign of the times. I've seen that, too.

This image begs the question was it discarded by accident unknown to the owner or simply thrown to the ground either way its a sign of the times Lou Ann:)
