Roadside litter accounts for 53% of trash in the U.S. alone. The majority of it is from materials that the soil just doesn’t know what to do with it, so it just lays there and poisons the soil, pollutes the air when coming in contact with Co2 emissions and kills the Plants and Wildlife.
There’s an average of 51 billion pieces of trash items along the highways in the U.S., 40-60% is from food and beverage containers and 38% is from tobacco waste alone. Actually, some of Our Trash will outlive Us. Plastic bottles thrown out Your car window will take over 400 years to Decompose and cigarette buds will take over 10 years to Disintegrate, and roughly 80% of that trash ends up in Our Oceans. Littering costs the U.S. roughly $11.5 billion each year, Money that could be spent on the Hungry, Homeless or other Social Efforts. We are losing more Mammals each Day through Littering which is affecting Our Biodiversity.
