Does pouring soda or coffee over grass or concrete litter?


ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY social dilemma comes from Dylan and is about waste. Here is the mail :

Hi Jaime.

Something happened to me and a friend on Monday afternoon. He said I was too sensitive. I think I just cared about the environment. I can’t wait to hear what you think. So the other day I was with a friend of mine, Nick. We had caught some subs and were having lunch at a small indoor / outdoor location in my workplace. Anyway, we both had sodas. I was drinking mine, but he decided he wasn’t in the mood for his, so he got up, walked into the outside area, and poured it out onto the aisle. I told him he shouldn’t have done this. He should have kept it until he could throw it away properly. He said it was okay to pour a soda. I said I didn’t think soda was good for the environment. Heck, it’s not great for us so we shouldn’t be spreading it. He said I was super sensitive. I wasn’t mad, but I really think it’s something you shouldn’t be doing. But then I started to think. Am I too sensitive? Does it throw garbage or is it okay to do it? What do you think? Is it okay to pour soda or coffee from elsewhere on concrete or grass when it is visible? Hope you can help me Jaime.

Thank you so much,

~ Dylan

Well I don’t think it’s a good idea to pour it over concrete. It might freeze in winter, but even in summer it would seem strange. That’s what I think anyway. I would just throw it in a trash can.

What do you think? Is Dylan too sensitive or is it wrong to throw in soda or coffee for that matter? Let us know on the NEWS10 Facebook page or let Jaime know on the TRY Facebook page.
