Russia Smothered with Garbage - Comments

80 billion tons of garbage have been accumulated in the vast expanses of Russia; it makes up 5 kilograms per each square meter!Many of Russians were witnesses of such episodes when some of their neighbors dropped pieces of rubbish and dirty toilet paper on the way to rubbish containers standing near the apartment blocks. They dropped rubbish then flies about the yard; and the place looks awfully polluted. People at the age of 30-40 remember perfectly well that several years ago there was little garbage in city streets. At least there were no plastic bottles, boxes, plastic bags and paper scattered here and there. Why do we throw garbage everywhere? Do you think it is normal to throw a cigarette box or a plastic bottle right in the middle of a neatly besomed pavement?
