Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish!

Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish everywhere. There is not a single place without litter. We should learn to keep our streets clean because too much rubbish on the streets is not hygienic and weak children, babies and adults can very easily fall sick. India is trying to maintain order, cleanliness and greenery.

In order to stop the littering we should have proper rubbish dumps everywhere. We should throw our sweet wrappers, empty packets, cans, into a dustbin, but if there is no dustbin in the area, then we should keep the junk with us until we reach home or find a dustbin. We should also try not to spit chewing gum, pan or saliva on the road. If we want to spit out some gum, we should wrap it up in a small piece of paper or in its original wrapper and then throw it in the dustbin. If we need to spit we should do so in the dustbin only.

In our school, we should not tear paper from our books and then throw them on the floor; instead we should throw it in the rubbish bin. We should not spit food on the floor, if it does happen we should wrap it in a piece of paper and throw it in the dustbin. We should also bring bottles, which do not leak so that they do not dirty the class. If it is a child's birthday we should throw the sweet wrapper in the dustbin, in case we are in the field we should keep it in our pockets until we reach class.

Our houses also need to be kept clean. We should not drop biscuit crumbs on the floor while eating but we should sit and eat at the table. In case we drop our milk, tea, juice, etc., we should clean it up immediately. We should also not maintain any stagnant water anywhere near our houses. We should try to keep our houses, school, neighbourhood and country clean.
