Why would you trash Aspen?

Dear Editor:We love Aspen: the awesome views, the great outdoor activities, and, of course, the many inspiring cultural and artistic events. There is one thing, however, that is a bit disheartening: Every day when we walk around town we see bottles, cans, and other trash strewn along the sidewalks. Realistically, the people who drop this junk are unlikely to change their habits and probably don’t read these letters anyway. But maybe those of us who do care could be inspired to pick up this trash and drop it in the nearest container (my wife makes me do this).Let’s all be inspired to try to Keep Aspen Beautiful.Kerry J.
