Old Jeddah: Sad Truth

One of the things that I find most discouraging about living in Jeddah is the garbage everywhere.  There is not much awareness about littering.  Most Saudis seem to have the attitude that someone else will come along and clean up after them, and most expats seem to have the attitude that Saudi Arabia is not their homeland, so they don't care about throwing their trash on the ground.  Plastic bags are a huge problem and recycling is not common here.

I cannot imagine feeling comfortable with all the trash I see in Saudi photos. The US is hardly perfect, when I lived in Tennessee I was appalled at how much trash there was in public places.
