Protecting the environment is a basic public consciousness in the U.S Street cleaners benefit from this consciousness; often, they needn`t clean up the "battle field" after a big assembly.
I was in Washington D.C. over Independence Day and thousands of people went to see the parade in the early morning.
That day must have been one of the hottest Inexperienced in Washington. Street vendors were doing a brisk business in drink sales. Almost everyone held a bottle of Coke or some ice cream.
After the parade ended and people left, I couldn’t find any empty cans or wrappers .People left, I couldn’t find any empty cans or wrappers .People left only their footprints.
In Washington, aside from the buildings and roads, almost every inch of land is covered with lush lawn. You can step on the lawns ,too.
There are even signs which say:” You are welcome to sit here.” So people do lots of things on the lawns ,such as walking, playing ball ,holding parties, and so forth.
These lawns have become important places in the daily lives of Americans .Even though you can run ,jump, sit ,lie of even roll on the grass ,however, you can’t pollute it with litter.
What would happen if some one were to dispose litter in a public place ?"It would stir public anger and denouncement,” Sonia said.” people would look at you strangely as if you an alien from outer space.
At the same time, someone would quietly pick it up for .who wouldn’t be embarrassed by such a scene?

华盛顿的草坪极多，除了道路和建筑物，几乎都被草坪覆盖着。草坪不怕人们“践踏 ” ，有的甚至还立起“欢迎你与青草同坐”的牌子。因此，人们的户外活动，散步、打球、聚会场 ，都在草坪上进行，它已成为人们生活中一个重要场所。不过，尽管你可以在草坪上跑啊，跳啊，坐着，躺着，乃至打滚，却不可以用废弃物污染它。
