Next time you see someone throwing trash on the ground, make them accountable. Or be the change you wish to see in the world and pick up one piece of litter a day. Do it in front of complete strangers. Talk about your disgust toward litter everywhere you go. Your intolerance will be contagious. Connect with strangers through a mutual disdain for the sanitarily deficient. People love to dislike things and we can all unequivocally hate the indefensible violation of littering.

Real change starts with small victories. Let the world know that you do not tolerate littering. If you see someone litter, call them out. Litter is a communal embarrassment and it’s our duty to shame those who continue to trash our communities with blatant disrespect. Proudly share the message with shirts, signs, stickers, or posters. You can also make a difference by joining a litter trash walk in Vista by signing up here.

“Let’s do a better job of loving where we live and passing the message along to those who need to hear it most, because ONLY LOSERS LITTER.”
