My husband and I agree wholeheartedly with your commentary on Mobile’s litter crisis (“Only (New York) trash litters,” Sept. 15, 2016). We dealt with the same thing for 14 years on the Eastern Shore, on daily walks and of course during the yearly Alabama Coastal Cleanup.

We were so disturbed by trash washing down into the gully where we lived that we would crawl down periodically and pick up everything you could imagine.

My husband, Jerry, in coordination with the city, instigated Fairhope Clean Up Day, yearly on Coastal Cleanup Day.
We are now owners of an historic cottage in the Oakleigh District. We love the home, the people and, most of all, living in Mobile, my home town!

We all need help and ideas on how to make and keep Mobile and its waterways clean.

It is already the most beautiful spot in the world. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if it could be one of the cleanest?

Keep up your good work and words! We would like to help anyway we can.
