PSA: As people are spending more time outside, more and more trash is piling up in our parks. Our local parks have become a place of solitude for many throughout this ongoing pandemic. Spending time outside is important for our mental health as well as our physical health. We gather with friends, family, pets and often engage in exercise like walking or yoga. While a little bit of trash may not seem like a big issue, this could also effect our students and campuses. Trash and litter not only has an impact on our wildlife but also on people. Things such as hypodermic needles or human waste is a high concern because it can be a spreader of infection or disease. In order to keep ourselves safe, happy and healthy we must take care of our environment. Picking up after ourselves and cleaning up after others is crucial to keeping our surroundings clean and safe for us all.
