There are one hundred million marine animals that die from plastic waste alone every year. Not only this but trash hurts our environment and can hurt you too. Litter can intrude rivers, forests, habitats, coastal environments, etc. This can affect humans that visit aquatic areas, or who use aquatic resources. 

Trash causes air pollution as well, which can be toxic to humans and animals. As it builds up more and more everyday the rate for diseases in humans and animals can grow even higher. 

Littering is also a big reason there are fires. Wild fires hurt habitats and damage our environment as well. If we can prevent the amount of trash that is being tossed around, we can also prevent the amount of fires around habitats and homes. 

Water is also a resource both animals and humans need to survive. The more trash that spreads, and pollution the more toxic the water we intake can become. Which can make us at risk for diseases too, it attracts harmful germs. 

Litter can also hurt us physically. When trash flies around streets like freeways for example, it can get stuck in your tires and cause an accident which will resolve in injures and a big price to pay. It is also very expensive for the economy to clean up trash. 

You can help. By finding a piece of trash on the floor maybe at the store, street, or school. Throwing away any trash you see can make a big difference, you can also join organizations and participate in cleaning your environment to make it safer for not only you but animals as well.
