Travelling & Keeping It Clean

Perhaps it doesn’t need to be said. But then again, sometimes we all need a timely reminder.
Each time we travel and explore a place, I think it is a good rule to follow to keep the place as clean as it was before we got there. Our trash belongs to a trash bin, not just any spot on the park or a mall. And if you do smoke, those butts also belong to the trash bin, not just any convenient nook in a restaurant or a resort. 
I feel sad whenever I see plastic wrappers or food wrappers on the sea shore or even floating on the waves. Obviously, they just did not arrive there by themselves. Somehow, people brought them there or left them there. That’s not the way to take care of the environment; that’s not the way to behave at all as a traveller.
If we enjoyed a place, I think we should also allow others the chance to enjoy them as much, minus any distracting trash 🙂
