How Does Littering Affect the Environment?

Answer

When people litter, wild animals suffer. Many animals are injured, become ill, and die each year due to human carelessness with litter and pollution. Animals can swallow or get entangled in many of the litter items people leave in the environment. They can also ingest toxic substances like motor oil and pesticides, which are often dumped into storm drains and end up in our waterways.
