How do the beautiful lakes around our country get littered and what are the consequences/problems that come from that litter? That’s a good question and here a good answer:
When debris—plastic bags, bottles, cigarette butts, etc—is thrown on the ground, it gets washed into storm drains and directly into our waterways. In addition to potentially choking, suffocating, or disabling aquatic life like ducks, fish, turtles, and birds, litter decreases oxygen levels in the water when it decays.
The lakes and ponds and rivers and oceans are beautiful and made for man and beast alike. However, whereas man can help himself, often animals and birds cannot. That’s just NOT RIGHT! That’s also why I wrote a book entitled, “Loony the Loon and the Littered Lake.” It’s the story of how a beautiful bird named Loony frantically tries to help his friends where they live around a once beautiful lake.
