Do we want to leave behind a legacy of rubbish?

Have your say

Thought for the week

Scarcely a week goes by that we open our papers to read of someone having problems with litter/rubbish, you only have to walk down the street and watch as people just drop their litter, I have even seen people drop their litter on the floor when they are standing by a bin. What if we all did this? How quickly it would build up and we would be unable to move for it.

As a Christian I believe we are stewards of the planet, and this brings with it responsibilities. We must remember that we leave a legacy for the next generation and we must strive to leave the planet in as good a state as when it was first created (however we believe this to have happened).

Christians believe that God created the world and we are here to look after it, until it is the turn of another generation.

So we must all learn to be responsible and respectful whether you have a faith or not, we can all do our bit by placing our rubbish in a bin, or put it in your pocket and take it home to your own bin.

What legacy do you want to leave behind?
