I order to help the environment; we first need to teach people the consequences of hurting the environment. That is why I think there should be a required class that teaches about the environment and how recycling is vital, and it should be required to pass the class in order to graduate. Every generation people are becoming more and more careless about where they leave their garbage, and tend to not ask themselves exactly what they are doing. I don’t understand how this already isn’t a required class because in reality, the Earth is the most essential aspect in human life. I also think they should make the consequences of littering stricter. If you are to get caught littering, I think you should receive a fine along with community service. Your community service would consist of cleaning up trash, and the amount of hours would depend on how much and what you exactly littered.
