Last year, I blogged about the much-ridiculed “Earth Day Run” by Nat Geo. That time, there were many excuses – both by the organizers and ordinary runners – as to why the mess they made was acceptable, despite the supposed aim of their event.
Well, okay. Since it’s that time of the year again, let’s see if they’ll be making the same excuses.
When I was still a smoker, one of the things that annoyed me about my former co-smokers was their penchant for throwing away their used cigarette butts just about anywhere. In a majority of cases, the rubbish bin was literally just a few steps away yet for some reason, they’d rather throw them on the grass, the floor, the street, etc.
I once thought that this had something to do with the fact that smokers generally have a rebellious inclination and that this non-observance of basic cleanliness norms had something to do with it. Surely, health-conscious people who advocate a worthwhile cause would not display such a willful disregard for such norms.
Well, I was wrong.
