Row after row of steel gas guzzlers line a barren wasteland of asphalt. An assortment of Kum N Go cups, Little Caesars pizza boxes, and a variety of other trash surround them. Though my introduction doesn’t paint a pretty picture, it paints a realistic one. Wash’s parking lots are a disgrace to our school and the environment.

The immense amount of litter in our parking lots is a simple problem with a simple fix:throw away/recycle your trash. Several students, especially upon coming back from lunch, take an easy way out by carelessly throwing their trash in the parking lot. There are trash cans situated at all the main entrances of Wash (arcade, jock lot, etc.) along with trash cans and recycling bins in every classroom. All it takes is to carry the trash you’re responsible for to a proper location of its disposal.

With such a proactive Washington student body that advocates beliefs and promotes change throughout the community and nation, what does the condition of our parking lots say about us? Environmental issues from sustainability to pollution will prove problematic as long as we live and must be addressed as so. As the next generation, it’s important to establish a foundation of issues to engage upon now and into the future. We are the future but so are all the problems that surround us.
