On a regular day, an average American throws away about 7 pounds of garbage. That’s a lot! As you can imagine, all that garbage can’t be good for the environment. The people in the video below got to see first-hand what are the consequences of throwing garbage in random places. They were driving home when they noticed a skunk on the side of the road. When they took a closer look, they realized the poor animal had gotten stuck in a cup which probably somebody had thrown away without thinking twice. This skunk got lucky, but think about all those animals that are not as lucky.
