It hurts everyone. Its cleanup is costly, taking valuable tax
dollars away from other programs.
Littering does not hurt any"body" it hurts wildlife and the environment
Littering hurts everyone. If many people litter, besides the
obvious problems associated with cleaning up after them, they also
send a message that isn't always perceived in a way that people
tend to recognize. The message is that it is okay to litter and not
take any individual responsibility for the state of the world we
live in. Many people use the negative example of others to justify
their own behavior, such as littering. Everybody (plants,humans
etc.) is affected (hurt) by littering, because it causes pollution
to our enviroment.
