Our Environmental Legacy
Giving Litter A Voice
“The trash and litter of nature disappears into the ground with the passing of each year,
but the litter of mankind has more permanence.”
~ John Steinbeck
Too often we conveniently overlook litter in nature – choosing to ignore the jarring shapes and colors of our daily waste that distastefully decorate the earth. We expect Mother Nature to digest our detritus and absorb our pollution.
This photographic project attempts to give nature a voice by confronting the viewer with litter in nature alongside the 2008 poem, Litter, by MF Cowan.
I invite you to change your behaviors today in order to shape your own environmental legacy for tomorrow. One piece of litter at a time, be it yours or someone else's.

There’s litter all around us.
This Seat is Taken
Pick that litter up son.
It’s always someone else’s fault.
And what about the animals
You dropped the packet
And doesn’t it look filthy as it
None of us like litter
Going Down the Drain
There’s litter all around us
