Remarks: A stroll through the wilderness gives the lie to the notion that today’s youth care about the environment. The high schoolers run over for lunch at the nearby rain-forest-killing fast-food outlets, then toss their wrappers willy-nilly on the ground in the wilderness, even though there are trash cans placed throughout. Every few weeks someone cleans it up, then it gets trashed all over again. It’s not like their parents are doing any better, but we had higher hopes for the future. Guess not.
Who's Responsible?: A consumer culture that celebrates a fast-food industry that preys on kids.
