The intent of my other post was to simply point out that the littering problem is a city-wide issue, as there are well-monied people in this city who have not an ounce of class, though littering of course is less of an issue in the higher income neighborhoods. And in some areas, such as the PV peninsula, litter is virtually non-existent, discounting the Terranea hiking trails and other areas which tend to attract outsiders.

Ok, so littering certainly doesn't seem to be a problem with the Japanese...

Or thefts ... or lots of other behaviors we westerners wallow around in.

Fine people.

Great article!

This snip-it is spot on!

The public signs in America threaten, beg, and fine people to just put their garbage in a can. Surveys also point to the top 3 reasons why Americans litter.

1.) Laziness.
2.) There is already garbage on the ground.
3.) Somebody will pick it up.

In the 1940's, everything you bought wasn't packaged in plastic like it is today.

Just because more things are packaged in plastic today that this somehow prompts people to litter?

You won't find these crazy litter issues in Houston as Texas has very strict laws against littering. The roadways and shoulders are free from litter. Here in the Bay Area the shoulders of the freeway are covered in litter and broken glass.

So the plastic turns to poison, explodes, or generally needs to be discarded immediately after it's ruptured lest something extremely deleterious happens, like the cassette tapes on Mission Impossible?

There’s a great deal of plastic in Japan yet predictably, there isn’t a trash problem there.
