Description

The lovely green, New Haven's front lawn -- open for all to come and enjoy -- is almost always a littered mess.
I'm not saying we should arrest litters, but begin issuing tickets for littering. It's a small, quality-of-life step that can yield large results. Clean the Green, a small effort that can sow pride. We all -- even the thoughtless litterers -- feel better when the world around us isn't a filthy mess. And if the city won't crack down, we can do it ourselves; just carry a plastic grocery bag with you and pick up after you messy brothers and sisters when you get the chance. It's good exercise.
