When travelers don\u2019t see \u201cit,\u201d\u00a0 the enjoyment of the destination or ride is not impacted, and they are likely to tell others about our area, which will entice some of those folks to visit, as well.\r\n\r\nWhen \u201cit\u201d is seen, it lessens the special feeling\u00a0a traveler would otherwise have for an area. Obviously, that person\u2019s vacation travel promotion to friends and associates could be negatively affected. \r\n\r\nThe \u201cit\u201d I\u2019m referring to is litter. \r\n\r\nThe problem of litter is of such great importance to a destination area such as ours, that \u201cit\u201d deserves a second week of attention. \r\n\r\nWith more and more emphasis on a recreation economy and the corresponding growth of visitor traffic to our area, the issue of litter and the steps to avoid its accumulation and\/or remove it will have to be everyone\u2019s job. \r\n\r\nEveryone in the hospitality industry and associated vendors and services, as well as residents, must see that they do their part in keeping our county litter free. So much of our county\u2019s future prosperity depends on it.\u00a0 \r\n\r\nA walker on the Greenbrier River Trail reports being appalled by the amount of litter along the trail.\u00a0 She suggests walking with plastic grocery bags in your pocket and picking up the easier accessed litter. \r\n\r\nWhat a difference that would make. \r\n\r\nIf each of us picked up a piece of litter each day, we would soon see a noticeable improvement in the landscape.\r\n\r\nBetter yet, if people would properly dispose of their litter, \u201cit\u201d would not be a problem at all.
