One hiker in Arizona saw a beautiful waterfall but also noticed a lot of trash left by people.

In a video on TikTok, user Logan (@logan.roams) stands near a brown waterfall in the Arizona desert and compares it to Willy Wonka’s chocolate waterfall. However, he points out the problem of trash scattered everywhere.

Logan shows the garbage on the riverbanks, including plastic containers, deodorant cans, a rusty wheel, and basketballs. He feels sad because the area is beautiful but ruined by trash.

Trash is becoming a common sight at many of the country’s most beautiful national parks. The number of visitors has more than doubled in the past 30 years, leading to an increase in garbage left behind.

Although there are places to properly dispose of trash in national parks, many people choose to litter, leading to scenes like the one at the waterfall.

Garbage not only ruins the natural beauty but also poses risks to visitors and wildlife. Trash can release toxins, harm plants and soil, and carry disease-causing parasites.

Most litter, especially plastic, does not break down over time. Animals often mistake trash for food, leading to starvation.

To preserve nature, it’s important to follow principles like Leave No Trace, which includes recycling, avoiding single-use plastics, and keeping shared spaces clean and free of trash.

In response to Logan’s video, commenters praised his efforts to clean up the trash, calling them “amazing.”
