A simple thing to do is take a plastic bag with you on every walk, see litter, stop put in bag, when full then put in trash. You are still sending to landfill but now a little bit less litter on earth

A lot of people don’t even carry plastic bags when walking their dogs...

Quite a few of those things I do already - eg taking re usable bags for shopping and a keep cup for takeaway coffee

I try and re use and recycle as much as possible.

Somebody has to step up and lead in the USA. The homeless problem alone is devastating the environment, this I’ve witnessed with my own two eyes! Drive through Portland, Oregon like I did recently if you dare. It’s home to the mighty Columbia River that’s feeling the pain. Our National Forests are “free” dumping grounds as well. (Same, my own two eyes) Hikers, hunters, Bums and good portion of others like the easy road, “nobody’s looking and even if they are, screw em!”

Those are very simple things to do. I also bring reusable bags for shopping. I don’t drink coffee, but would have a reusable cup if I did.

Unfortunately, a lot of people have the mentality of tossing stuff and letting others worry about it. If people threw garbage onto their yards, I’m sure they wouldn’t like it. I saw some funny dash cam videos of people tossing trash out of their vehicle - only to have bystanders pick it up and throw it back into the car.
