Living in the city, there is constantly litter on the streets, even in the environmentally-friendly Jamaica Plain. Jamaica Plain is a wonderful community that is unlike a typical city in many ways. Jamaica Plain has many activities, groups, and community events for the arts and culture. I think what Jamaica Plain needs is youth involvement in the environment, specifically with the issues of litter on the streets. For most Jamaica Plain residents, they take pride in where they live. We need to instill this pride in Jamaica Plain youth. Too many times have I seen kids walk past trash on the ground or seen them litter. The children of Jamaica Plain need to learn to respect not only the town they live in, but the world they live in. Can we live in a clean city? I would like Jamaica Plain to be a clean city, and I would like the children of Jamaica Plain to be involved because the youth is the future.
