What to Do with All the Litter…
Not many people drive along the freeway or walk along the beach without feeling at least some sense of disgust or sadness over garbage on the ground. Plastic bags stuck in trees. Fast food packages stuck in the brush. Straws, wrappers, cigarettes. It seems every once in a while while driving down the road you stumble upon an area that has been especially pummeled with litter and trash. It can feel out of control and beyond help. Signs on the side of the road point to families and businesses who have adopted a section of highway to try to help. But yet the problem doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon.
What Can We Do?
It seems that no matter how many garbage bags (made of plastic) you fill with trash, there’s no difference made. Garbage is everywhere. So is the impact. It’s affecting our scenery and our drinking water.
And so before we abandon our fight and decide that our best days are behind us, we believe that small, simple steps can make a big, lasting impact on the world around us.
Install a Filtrol. Expand Your Definition of Impact.
The work that Filtrol does to stop plastic pollution in its tracks isn’t stopping plastic bags from getting stuck in trees or cigarette butts from getting dumped into the street at traffic lights.
Ultimately, the installation of a Filtrol on your home or business laundry systems is making a big impact on the plastic waste you’re producing. But it’s bigger than that. It’s doing more than stopping millions of microfibers from entering ground water, drinking water, and food sources. It’s doing more than preserving our ecosystem and protecting our precious resources.
It is helping people engage with the problem that’s all around us. It’s helping people to see that plastic pollution is something we all need to take responsibility for. It’s helping people put money into the cause and to put action to the frustration they feel when they see garbage.
When you’re invested, you’re more likely to pick up the garbage you see on the side of the road or at the beach. When you’re invested, you’re more likely to go out of your way to make your surroundings more beautiful and less cluttered with trash. When you’re invested, you’re thinking about how to engage other people in the discussion and into becoming part of the solution.
So get invested! Buy a Filtrol for your home and business and be part of a bigger conversation.
