Throwing Garbage into the river

At summer noon, a man throws garbage into the Gorai River in Kushtia district, Bangladesh. Two laborers brought Garbage bags, which contain plastic-bag, bottle, vegetables etc. by two rickshaw-van and threw it into the river. They are dwellers beside the river- since they live riverside that’s why they collect garbage from the local area and throw them into the river. They are unconscious about river pollution; they don’t think it is polluted the river-they think river water wash all and after that river water will be fine.
