An environmental problem in my town is pollution. Everywhere you go there are bags, cups, food, etc. all over the side of the roads and my neighborhood ponds. There is no recycling centers or programs in my town, so people throw everything away without things about its harmful affects to the earth. As I drive to and from my home, I see people trashcans by the curb filled with plastic, newspapers and glass. What a sad sight to see!

The causes of these problems are people being careless and not taking the time to make extra steps to make sure that the earth exists a little longer. It is so much easier now days to be convenient and quick. Instead of taking a couple extra minutes to sort our plastics from our paper, we just throw everything together because it is the easiest clean up.

All of these causes are related to human values and environmental ethics. It shows that us as individuals do not take the time to think about the earth and how we affect the things around us. We only have one earth and people need to take that into consideration because we need the earth in order for humans to survive....
