"When you see someone littering. Go stop them. Tell them what they are doing is wrong. When you keep doing this repeatedly, people will change."
"When we go abroad, we follow the rules there, don't litter the streets. But when we come back, we return to our old habits. That has to change."
"You are praising me for picking up trash with my bare hands but there's nothing special about it. Our sanitation workers don't always have gloves."
"The flooding and water logging happens because we fail to keep our cities clean. The garbage clogs the drains, how can the water flow to the sea?"
