What we throw into drains ends up in rivers


I REFER to The Star article titled “Working 10 hours daily to keep water filth-free” that was published on Sept 20 (online at bit.ly/star_dirty).

The cleaning of our filthy rivers littered daily with thousands of plastic bottles, plastic bags, Styro-foam boxes and even chairs, refrigerators, mattresses and carcasses(!) as reported is a Sisyphean task indeed. We must eliminate the problem at the source – and the source is us humans.
