    RUBBISH

    by janaina Written Feb 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are rubbish disposals everywhere,unfortunately,there have hardly been discovered by the Brazilians!!!!!
    Everytime I am absolutely shocked and horrified to see how even well educated people of the so called upper classes show complete neglect in environment matters!!!
    Not only is all rubbish thrown overboard in the most beautiful bays,but there are bilges pumped,boats cleaned and sewage water from whole towns or villages going straight into the sea!! Monday mornings,during the holiday seasons are the best time to watch this tragedy:watersand beaches are absolutely littered with garbage,however,they
    are cleaned up amazingly fast by the armada of men and women employed to clean up this most unnecessary mess!!
    Nature though has not forgotten that quickly and e.g. fish life has suffered tremendously!!

    no rubbish pls!
