Out of the Car, Into the Drain, Into the Stream and Into Your Water

As we sat at a stoplight earlier today, I noticed a storm drain clogged with plastic and aluminum cola cans, paper, styrofoam and lots of cigarette butts. Wastes shouldn’t go into storm drains because the drains empty into rivers where we eventually get our water. As I blog, I’m sipping hot tea, made with tap water that was also put through a Brita filter. I hope that the tars from the cigarette butts have been removed. They are poisonous.
