Litter Becomes Eco Art

Litter can become eco art. That’s the case with Mariah Reading. Reading reminds us of her passion for art and making light of the littering problem by saying, “I get excited about trash - knowing it's out there for the taking is exciting. I always have to remind myself like 'Mariah, if I don't see trash, that's a good thing. And if I see trash, that's a bad thing.'"

Additionally, Reading finds trash, paints landscapes, and matches the scenery. She says that she’s breathing life into forgotten objects. At the same time, it’s astonishing how much trash she is finding as she searches. It seems to be a never-ending treasure trove of items.

How Can You Help With Litter?

There’s a lot you can do to make the litter issue a little better in your community. First, you should do your best to make sure your home or business is as clean as possible. Second, if you have time, pick up trash around the area. There’s no need to make light of it. It’s just the right thing to do.

You can join local coalitions that help keep roads and highways clean. Plus, you can turn to recycled and reusable bags as part of your business plan. Encourage your customers to pick up trash where they can. Also, you can donate to litter programs that clean up the community. You can even cut out plastic bags—one of the worst litter offenders—and use only reusable bags for everything your business does.
