theres a lot or reasons trash sit where they sit. people enjoy watching where their wrappers land. for some its therapy. lol. depends on where, some do it as part of the work. reserving and conserving peoples right to enjoy the river without getting hurt by broken glass and nails and harware. theres enough shit in nature that can hurt us. alone in the river are tons of little pointy snails that poke into your skin if you step on them. but you cant do anything about that. its her sign of protection. it like her sayin throw your trash in my waters get out. its like cactus and roses having thorns and needles. or alkaloids in a plant that are natural pesticides like eggshells are good for keeping snails off your plants.
the rivers in the philippines are beatiful and its a treasure for everyone to be able to use in a sustainable manner. this includes everyone from people that use it as a pathway to people who wash their clothes in it. everyone can still enjoy the rivers even while doing work or housework.
children spend the most time in playing in the river. so,
IF YOU COME TO THE RIVER WITH TRASH, MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE WITH IT.
