I'm sure most of you pack out your trash and some of you pack out others trash. it's one thing to actively drop trash on the ground but how do you feel about passive littering? is it the same to you and should someone be cited for it? when i think of passive littering an example might be trash falling out of your pocket on a hunt or forgetting a baggie after leaving lunch. i realize accidents happen and intent sure would play into any citation an officer may give in the woods. now to my real reason for making this post. how do you feel about all those well meaning people that let mylar balloons go down in the city? their intent is not to litter and they have good intention is to either celebrate someone's life or event. they are likely quite ignorant to what is the end result. the events are broadcast and often sanctioned by cities and big name groups yet no one ever comments negatively on or prosecutes the offenders. so i ask what is the difference when someone throws trash intentionally on the ground or lets a balloon float away to "the heavens"?
