Leaving Food Behind is Trash

I used to grab an apple to eat after working out with my personal trainer. I tossed the core out the car window in grassy areas for birds to eat. That is, until I learned from Edith Heller at Keep Tennessee Beautiful that this is littering. I thought that I was doing the right thing by feeding the wild birds, which I do in my backyard.

Here’s a story about the Orphaned Wildlife Society in British Columbia and why we shouldn’t toss food on our roadways. It’s true that we often harm wildlife by thinking that we are doing the right thing. Read the story and find out why food scraps on the sides of roadways is harming our wildlife.
