Letter to the Editor: How does littering promote environmentalism?

Editorials featured in the Forum section are solely the opinions of their individual authors.

It seems counterproductive for environmentalists to waste hundreds of dolls made of plastic to save a few trees (“Students Protest the Axe,” Feb. 6). The best way to help the Earth is to do things with long-lasting impact, such as driving a fuel-efficient car and cutting animal products out of your diet. You can save the planet without using hundreds of plastic figurines.
