Littering the streets is a bad habit

Littering is a growing disease among Zimbabweans especially in the capital, Harare.

In this day and age it is our responsibility to take care of our environment.

We can blame the council and government for not ensuring that our towns and cities are clean but it is our responsibility.
Teach your children the right thing, littering is bad for the environment.
Even in schools, I think more should be done to stop that bad habit.
It takes a very long time for plastic to decay, so imagine whenever you throw away litter it will remain there for so many years.
People should just develop a culture of cleanliness.
Whenever you eat something even in the commuter omnibus keep your litter and throw it in the bin when you get home or when you drop off in town, bins are everywhere.
I know littering is a crime but I think the Environmental Management Agency, city councils and government should task the police to catch whoever is littering the environment and the culprits should be fined heavily.
